Talk: Saturday, September 29 at 11am

Please join Addison/Ripley Fine Art on September 29th for the next in their ongoing series of Saturday artist’s talks.  For the first in their Fall series, Addison/Ripley is pleased to offer a conversation between their currently exhibiting artist, Kay Jackson, and master gilder and framer, Bill Adair of Gold Leaf Studios. When it comes to the details of framing an artwork, Adair and Jackson are long time collaborators as well as wife and husband. The conversation will explore the conceptual basis for Butterflies & Zebras including Jackson’s longtime love of the planet and the 18 year span that this exhibition covers, the use of materials, including gold and other metal leaf and the rigorous techniques both Adair and Jackson have fully mastered.

The program begins with coffee and bagels at 11 on Saturday, September 29th, in the Addison/Ripley Gallery space at 1670 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Seating will be first come, first served. Ms. Jackson’s exhibition will continue through October 13th.

The gallery is located at 1670 Wisconsin Avenue NW. For further information, visit
