Mind of the Artist, Part XIV: Karen Zens
We loved getting a peek into the Mind of Karen Zens, artist, native Washingtonian, and world traveler.  Especially as we hit our 45th Anniversary year, we are struck by the constant ripple of movement that characterizes DC: both the seat of government, the solid home to so many, but also a stopover, a transitory phase, a migration in and out.  We feel particularly grateful to have persisted in this spot on 7th & G SE despite (or, perhaps, because of) that very cyclical nature of our city.  And we are even… ...

Taking a Second Look at Tess Olson’s Wild Landscapes
Smells Like Licorice, oil on canvas, by Tess Olson. 2014. Winner of The Art League Best in Show Award. Take a look at this best-in-show painting, and what do you see? An abstracted landscape, bold brushstrokes, vivid colors. Spend some more time with it, and questions will start to emerge from underneath the beauty: What accounts for the bright orange and red? What does the title, Smells Like Licorice, mean? We asked the artist, Tess Olson, for the story behind this painting, and got answers to those questions and more. What’s… ... Read More
