Artist Robert E. Kuhn: BETWEEN THE SUITE AND THE SYMPHONY
Ballroom Gallery

 

“Born in Michigan in1917, Robert E. Kuhn attended the Art Institute of Chicago and was later hired by the Depression-era Works Progress Administration. He spent a few years in Mexico, where he learned to weld, before moving to Washington in the 1950s. Although he supported himself as an artist for years, he grew disillusioned with galleries. He relocated in 1966 to a deconsecrated church in Tanners Ridge, VA…..” “Kuhn was an artist of his times, and some of his role models are evident.” We will see abstract works paying homage to Paul Klee in this exhibition.—excerpt taken from Mark Jenkins’s article “Robert Kuhn, a recluse whose art is anything but reserved”. Washington Post. Dec 6, 2012.

Artist Suzanne Goldberg: SWIRLING ROCKS, PORQUEROLLES
Aggie Wolf Ballroom Exhibition

 

 

Artist’s Statement

My work expresses the joy and passion I feel when engaged in art, which, for me, has been a liberation, allowing me to discover, un-censored, what lies inside. It replicates what I, as a practicing clinical psychologist, try to encourage in my patients: a trust in oneself and one’s inner nature. But in my art, never without an internalized discipline that is conscious of form and structure. I work with different media: Oil on canvass, acrylic on paper or canvass, watercolor, pastel, ink and/or collage on paper.

—Suzanne Goldberg

 

 

Artist Sandra Warren Gobar: WHITE TREE
2nd Floor Exhibition

 

Artist’s Statement

I find myself drawn to trees in the landscape and a Veduta emotional response to the visible world. The tactile surfaces, the ethereal color perceptions of veiled muted unseen imagery and the architectural spatial schematic that shifts space within space are an integral part of my work. 

 — Sandra Warren Gobar, Studio Art Adjunct
     Professor, Painter, Museum Arts Educator,
     Administrator, Curator & Lecturer

Seven Years: Grasses to Trees

 

               

 

Artist’s Statement

             My paintings are of real or imagined places in which I seek to develop an atmosphere of quiet and peace. Nature, always changing, is

simultaneously still.     

           —Ellen Sinel

 

An artist in Washington, D.C. and Truro, Massachusetts, Ellen Sinel is represented by the Studio E Partners in Washington, where she has had numerous one-person exhibitions, and by the Wohlfarth Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

exhibitions. Her work is collected and owned by

corporations and individuals throughout the country, and she has been chosen to participate in several public projects in the Washington, D.C. area.

 

 


 

 

Millie S. Shott

Second Floor Exhibition

Artist’s Statement

A water color

painting is the creative

image captured in the artist’s eye. It’s an

impression of a vision rather than the photo

duplication. Because it’s a painting, the artist has the option to create; to move the landscape and the sky about and select the palette as the mood

commands.

      —Millie S. Shott

 

Millie S. Shott is a very creative painter. She enjoys the challenge of new innovative ideas and experimentation. She paints in water color, acrylics and collage. She has been involved in the arts for more than five decades. She has been an active member in the community promoting the arts. In 1975, she originated the annual Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase Community Art Exhibitions, which continues to be an annual event.

Fall Art Exhibition 2013

Exhibition on view from September 6 - November 20, 2013
Opening Reception on Wednesday September 12, 2013 at 6:00-8:00 p.m.


Aggie Wolf Ballroom Exhibition: UnderGrowth by Micheline Klagsbrun

Centaur with Uprooted Tree mixed media on canvas 36” x 36”

UnderGrowth brings together Klagsbrun’s work in several media, all focused on the process of transformation. For many years she has immersed herself in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, and several of the earlier paintings in this show are inspired directly by his passionate tales in which gods and humans change form, becoming animals, trees, plants, birds, water and stone. More recently she has gone beyond narrative to explore the process of transformation itself. This investigation into form and formlessness continues with her drawings in ink and color pencil on vellum. The drawings take their titles from the words of Dylan Thomas, another poet for whom all is flux and transformation.?Micheline Klagsbrun studied in Paris with Alfredo Echeverria and at the Corcoran with Bill Newman and Gene Davis. She has exhibited widely, and is in private collections nationally as well as in Europe and the Middle East. Recent solo and group exhibits in Washington D.C. include Arena Stage, Adah Rose Gallery, Studio Gallery, the Embassies of Finland and Venezuela, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

 Second Floor Gallery Exhibition: The Many Colors of Expressionism by Melchus A. Davis



 Artist’s Statement

 “My art for the most part reveals types of diversity in content though the process and technique is similar. The inspiration for my work can be related to a number of things, landscapes, cityscapes, people, dreams, etc. I approach the canvas openly without an initial design or an end of mind. For me the art of painting is much more exciting when the medium drives the painting as well as my intuitive impulses. Spontaneous gestures take me on a journey of discovery, and eventually a composition is suggested and I began to build on that striving to create a balance and harmony with color. The process is to create a rhythmic movement of the elements.”







 


Under the auspices of the Arts Committee:

In addition to its permanent collection, the museum features special exhibits. Our first exhibit, The Kennedys: A Legacy of Style and Substance, was launched in the spring of 2002 in conjunction with Cultural Tourism DC’s promotion of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Washington.
