The Foundry Gallery's Take Two exhibit welcomes it's two newest members - Gordana Gerskovic, a conceptual photographer, and Alex Tolstoy - an impressionistic water colorist. Meet the artists at the opening reception during "First Friday" gallery open house around DuPont Circle on February 7th, 6- 8pm.

Alex Tolstoy

Gordana, born and raised in Zagreb, Croatia came to the United States in 1997 where she has lived and worked ever since. Her photographs present the viewer with extreme close-up images that transform into astonishing abstract forms. Her subjects reflect her fascination with nature and evoke images of natural forms, organic objects and surfaces.

Alex, a former research scientist and mathematician, decided to try the other side of her brain, and watercolor has now taken hold there. She believes that watercolor is a quirky medium, with a mind of it's own. Drawing on her half-Russian heritage, her paintings are introspective and nearly monochromatic. Tolstoy's images are blurry and indistinct that bring more "feelings" about a place rather than a "representation."

Do not miss this unique exhibit that brings an excellent perspective on familiar subject matter and medium - the exhibition runs from February 5th through March 2nd.
