Spring Artists Reception at AU's Museum at the Katzen!

Always one of the nicest arts events in town, a Katzen Center opening has become one of the signature evenings of The ArtHouse.  We will gather first in the reception foyer there at 6, have some appetizers and a glass of wine or beer and socialize.  Then at about 7 or 7:15, we'll head into the main gallery for perusing the three floors of excellent special exhibits - starting at the top. (For those interested, there is a gallery talk at 5 with artist Timothy App.  These are always very interesting.) 

At about 8:15, we'll head to Cafe Ole where we can have dinner.  It's just a few blocks away and parking is easy. The Tenleytown Metro is also just a few blocks away from the AU Katzen Center; there is a bus or shuttle bus that goes from there.  Parking is free at Katzen in an underground parking garage at the Museum. I am sure rides can be arranged to the restaurant and back to the Metro for anyone requiring them.

Here are the opening exhibits:
Lee Haner: Mischief
Recent mixed-media works by a reclusive master. Balanced between representation and abstraction, painting and sculpture, the exhibition is inspired by the land and first peoples of the American Southwest.

Painting Borges: Art Interpreting Literature
Argentinean Jorge Luis Borges is one of the most prominent and profoundly philosophical literary figures of the twentieth century. Curator Jorge J. E. Gracia chose sixteen visual artists to interpret twelve stories by Borges, organized according to three topics: identity and memory, freedom and destiny, and faith and divinity.

Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, 45 Years
Timothy App's signature style of geometric abstraction reveals a concise and considered understanding of the nature of painting, visual tension, and persistence. The exhibition brings together various aspects of the artist's evolution and growth into one of the regions most important living abstract painters.

Saturation Point: Nudashank Presents Jordan Bernier, David Armacost, Jamie Felton, and Alex Da Corte

Nudashank is an artist-run, commercial gallery in downtown Baltimore that features Baltimore artists alongside artists from other cities to broaden the dialogue in the Baltimore art community. Curated by Alex Ebstein and Seth Adelsberger, the exhibition brings together four artists who explore the idea of saturation. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the American University Studio Art Program.

    I found the novel approach to this exhibit refreshing. I missed the talk so will try and go the gallery talk on Tuesday. I regret I arrived late so missed being able to locate the other Meetup participants.
