Opening Vernissage April 8, 2017  6:30-8:30 pm

Anne C. Smith

Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith.  She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape.  Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world.  With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships.  Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.

Anne is a visual artist in Washington DC. Her art practice spans the disciplines of drawing, sculpture and printmaking. Her subject matter includes her childhood home, the side of the road and other spaces imagined or observed. Anne received her BA in studio art at Williams College and her MFA from George Mason University. She is currently a teaching artist at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and works in the studio of master printmaker Lou Stovall. Anne has exhibited at Hillyer Art Space, Old Dominion University, James Madison University, Carroll Square Gallery, The Workhouse Art Center and throughout the DC area. Anne exhibited with Adah Rose Gallery last summer in “Carte Blanche”.

Christina Tenaglia

Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose.  Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts.  They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder.

Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape.  Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.

Christina Tenaglia is a visual artist from Hudson New York. Her practice includes drawing, painting and sculpture. Christina received her BA from Vassar College and her MFA from Yale University School of Art. She has been the recipient of numerous residencies including a MacDowell Colony Fellow, an I-Park Residency, and the Catwalk Residency.  She currently teaches at Vassar College and selected exhibitions include Goliath Visual Space, Rawspace in New York City, Yale University, Vassar College, Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn,500 X Gallery,  Weathervane and Tiger Strikes Asteroid. Christina exhibited with Adah Rose Gallery last summer in “Carte Blanche”

Cara Ober -Tragicomdey, thru May 1. Painter, teacher, curator, and writer Cara Ober layers drawing, painting, and printmaking into mixed media works that examine and reinterpret sentimental imagery. Ober’s narrative works utilize specific phrases and fonts to suggest multiple voices, perspectives, and time periods. Rather than illustrating the text, the images create discord and contrast, layering metaphorical and nonsensical outcomes over personal notation.

Gregory Mclemore-ALL Patched Up, May 1. Gregory Mclemore paintings range in subject from the once glorious but now dilapidated buildings of Baltimore City to the historic city of Nagasaki, Japan. The Baltimore Ruins paintings are highly detailed paintings of the city’s crumbling and in some cases, razed, structures. Aspiring to reflect the deep, dark, gritty nature of the city, as is reflected in its architecture. Inferences to the human psyche are enmeshed in each gash, hole, and sloppy patch. The Nagasaki City paintings are scenes of Nagasaki’s multilevel, Tetris -like architecture. Rather than the gleaming futuristic cities one might expect in Japan, Nagasaki is a charming, historic place, filled with gravity, character, and a shifting horizon line that forces multiple and dramatic views.

Saturday, April 8, 2 pm-Ellen Cornett, Library Gallery. Ellen Cornett’s charcoal and graphite drawings reveal the humorous and serious, often tragic undertones of fairy and folk tales. By using well-recognized sources, she manipulates characters into odd vignettes of conflict, misunderstanding, and relationships gone awry. In addition to these finished pieces, Cornett will create a large charcoal drawing on paper along the gallery wall aligning with other pieces in the show—a little whimsical, a little challenging, and a little dark. Visit her in the gallery to discuss and see the work in progress. She will also be documenting her process with daily reports on her blog and social media.
