July is the month for fireworks, hot summer days, picnics and celebrations. The Foundry Gallery is no exception as the Gallery showcases the new member show entitled “Fireworks”. Each gallery member artist was invited to interpret the theme in literal, mystical, emotional, and abstract themes. And that’s exactly what they did.
For example, as seen in her show piece, award winning artist Meg MacKenzie created a mixed media presentation of “Soldiers Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima” as her creative response and her interpretation of the theme of “July as the Month for Fireworks.” Allen Hirsh created a computer generated abstract and Jay Perterzell painted a blue and white abstract…come down and see what the other member artists created!
The Show runs through Sunday July 27th. Gallery Hours are 12-6 Wednesday through Sunday.
The Foundry Gallery’s member artists represent some of the best and the brightest established and emerging artists in the Washington, D.C. area. The gallery typically has two dozen members at any given time, showcasing many different media and styles. Over the years, The Foundry has hosted hundreds of shows of established and emerging artists.
The next show - Hot Glass in the City - by the National Capital Art Glass Guild will open July 30 - August 31.
Thirty-seven new works by top glass artists around the U.S. showcase the astonishing range of emotion and technique that can be achieved in this sculptural medium.
Opening Reception: Friday, August 1, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
