Gallery Opening of the Week: New Artists, New Art
GALLERY OPENING OF THE WEEK
The group show opening Thursday at Long View Gallery doesn't propose a grand thematic link; the nine participants in "New Artists, New Art'' are simply fresh to the gallery, or veterans previewing new directions. But they have something else in common: depth.
Sometimes that's inherent in their media. Shawna Moore works in encaustic, a mix of pigment and wax; Amy Genser's 3-D constructions are made of painted paper; Ryan McCoy incorporates ash and pine needles into abstract paintings that sometimes suggest landscapes; and Clyde Fowler's mixed-media pieces meld paint and diamond dust. Shaun Richards's "Meat Market" may be literally flat, but it's disturbingly multi-layered: It places what looks like an antique class photo beneath a diagram of a butchered cow.
The opening reception is Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday. "New Artists, New Art'' runs Thursday through March 13 at Long View Gallery, 1234 Ninth St. NW. www.longviewgallerydc.com . 202-232-4788. Free.
