Maremi Andreozzi: Little White Lines
Park View Gallery
Join Maremi at the opening reception for Little White Lines at the Park View Gallery at Glen Echo. The event is part of Art Walk in the Park. This solo show will feature paintings from her Little White Lines series.

Maremi’s work pushes the boundaries of design. Color, line, and shape are juxtaposed and overlapped with patterns to create a visual theatre. She explore the harmony and disconnect between the organic and geometric, symmetrical and asymmetrical, cool and warm, fast and slow, dense and airy.

In the series Little White Lines, her work studies the movement of a single white line zipping and looping through a patterned space. Lines are fundamental building blocks of a work of art. By highlighting the movement of a single line, she hopes to elevate its simplicity and elegance and convey its energy and character.

SilverWorks: Romancing the Stone
Popcorn Gallery
Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present SilverWorks: Romancing the Stone. This exhibition features silversmith works created by Glen Echo Park resident artist Blair Anderson. Anderson highlights unusual stones in this unique jewelry collection as well as how they are cut, their origins, and their properties. Gem specimens will be displayed alongside their finished counterparts. This exhibition also features lapidary artist Robert Cline and students of SilverWorks.

Aerial View: Kate Fitzpatrick and Sally Myers
Stone Tower Gallery
Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Aerial View. Featuring mixed media paintings by Kate Fitzpatrick, the exhibition is punctuated by the sculptural work of Sally Myers. Fitzpatrick creates multi-layered, mixed media paintings that use maps as collage material to address themes of place and identity. Through repurposed maps, she creates abstract images of current and historical geographies that have emerged along our waterways. Using a variety of media allows her to create complex textures and layers with paper, paint, and ink. Though made from steel, Sally Myers’ sculptures fit well into nature. With her simplified rendition of plants and birds, the viewer can sense nature from an unnatural material. Intended as outdoor sculpture, the works evolve over time under the influence of the elements. Together, these works evoke landscapes and the confluence of their inhabitants as they celebrate the beauty of nature and symbiotic relationships of land, people, and animals.

Glen Echo Park is located at 7300 MacArthur Blvd. in Glen Echo, MD.
