Talk: Saturday, March 2 from 11am to 1pm

Continuing Addison/Ripley’s series Coffee & Conversation, please join them on Saturday, March 2nd from 11 to 1 for coffee, bagels and a guided discussion featuring Mira Hecht. Her exhibition, Knocking on the Moonlit Door, includes familiar oils on canvas, an installation of 45 small pastel drawings, painted ceramic pieces as well as some small works on paper.  Speaking with Washington based artist and curator, J.W. Mahoney, expect the conversation to be both expansive and detailed. We will include time after the discussion for questions about the work from our audience. Additionally, as we have done previously, we are pleased to offer a short poetry reading by Peggy Heller and Stephen Rosen.

J.W. Mahoney is a Washington-based artist, writer, and independent curator, whose recent exhibitions have included “Outliers: the Art of Betsy Packard and Kurt Godwin,” at the Katzen Center at American University,  “Signals,” at the District of Columbia Arts Center,” which included his Washington Manifesto, and, of his own work, “The Marshes of Glynn” at Arlington’s Artisphere. He is represented by Andrea Pollan’s “Curator’s Office,” in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Peggy Osna Heller is a clinical poetry therapist and social worker in private practice in MD.

Stephen Rosen is a poetry enthusiast and works as a psychotherapist in private practice in DC.
