The Journey: Photography by Katherine T. Andrle and Gayle Rothschild, is a record of their explorations, experiences, and observations. The work focuses on the dynamic landscapes of the C & O Canal, Potomac River, and Seneca Breaks. Today the C & O Canal is a beloved and treasured National Park just outside the nation’s capital. Rothschild’s vintage black and white silver gelatin prints and her archival ink jet prints reveal the peace and lushness of the canal and the river, as well as the aftermath of nature’s violence, destruction, and regeneration. Andrle’s color images taken at Seneca Breaks on the Potomac River during her many days of paddling there have an ethereal romantic quality, revealing quiet, private moments. Join us to experience local beauty through the lens of Rothschild and Andrle.

Fran Abrams' work in Unpainted Colors is created from polymer clay and is designed to be hung on the wall like a bas relief. Polymer clay is a man-made substance that begins as blocks of solid-colored clay-like material. The clay colors blend just like blending paints. Like many polymer clay artists, Abrams uses a pasta machine to condition the clay, to blend colors, and to achieve complex designs. Her work is unusual because of what is not there. There is no paint. All of the colors come from the clay itself. The focus is not only on blending the various color clays, but also on manipulating the results to express the themes of the pieces. The works are framed and presented without glass, allowing the viewer to see the intricacies of the designs.
