Second Floor Exhibition
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

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
“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.”
