Three Exhibitions at McLean Center

The McLean Project for the Arts will have three shows running from Sept. 14 to Nov. 4 that will include large-scale works that combine various media, landscapes that highlight colors and space, and a visual history of Jamestown archaeology.

The first show, "Now, Mind and World," of new works by Inga McCaslin Frick, will be in the Emerson Gallery.

The second, "ColorScapes: Recent Works on Paper," by Maryland painter Howard Dean Spector, will be in the Atrium Gallery.

The third, "Uncovering Home: A Visual Essay on Jamestown Archaeology," will feature photographs from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts' Statewide Program in celebration of Jamestown's 400th anniversary. The photos, which paint a picture of the early colonists, will be in the Ramp Gallery.

All three galleries are in the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Ave. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday.
