July Roundup

June 5-July 20 Exhibit: Then and Now: Early and More Recent Works by Nancy Wolf, William T. Wiley, Sam Gilliam, Gene Davis at Marsha Mateyaka Gallery 2012 R St NW This month's exhibit at Marsha Mateyaka Gallery focuses on the works of four major gallery artists---Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, William T. Wiley, and Nancy Wolf.  Each artist is represented by early and more recent work which offers the opportunity, in each case, to compare influences and styles over several decades. Wednesday July 3: Exhibition: Intimate Colors: Seeing is Believing... by Maruka Carvajal at Gallery 1 Foundry Gallery 1314 18th Street, N.W., 1st Floor "Intimate Colors" allude to the theme of Carvajal's collection of paintings in acrylic on canvas. Space, color, shape, composition -everything the artist sees and that impresses her is part of who she is, and in this show she wants to share it. Structures, colors and lines are combined to reflect these emotions. Wednesday July 3 Exhibition: July 2013 Member's Exhibit at Gallery 2 Foundry Gallery 1313 18th Street, NW, 1st Floor Each month, Gallery 2 features member artists’ work that has not been shown before at the Foundry Gallery.

Saturday July 13:  Graffiti Mundo’s The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires at The Fridge 516 8th Street SE//7:00pm Buenos Aires-based collective Graffiti Mundo brings a group of street artists from Latin America to DC. The city walls in Buenos Aires do more than just host edgy works of graffiti art. They have been used to challenge dictators. They have broadcast the stories the media wouldn’t touch. They serve as a channel for expression, art, activism, political propaganda and public opinion. The walls of Buenos Aires talk to those who are prepared to listen. Wednesday July 24: Welcome to Chocolate City at Hemphill Gallery 1515 14th Street NW//6:00pm As a fifth-generation Washingtonian, James Huckenpahler raised an eyebrow in the adjacent classroom. Thus, a year later, when asked to give an informal presentation to another group of students on a topic of his choosing, Huckenpahler figured he'd better put-up-or-shut-up. The result was an unreliable slide presentation of dubious scholarly value that entertained the kids for hours. Check your firearms at the door and experience an abridged version, live and in-the-flesh. Thursday July 25: Recent works by Karen Hubacher Sculpture by Alan Binstock at Gallery Planb 1530 fourteenth street, nw//6-8pm Karen Hubacher will present a new series of encaustic paintings. Her familiar lines and shapes are still present but with a new medium. The exhibition will also include glass and steel sculptures by Alan Binstock. The exhibition will run from July 24 to August 25.
