Washington Landscapes opens Thursday, July 14th at Amy Kaslow Gallery, offering a sumptuous look at the nation’s capital. Paintbrushes, pen and ink and intricate appliques of three artists capture the capital city’s majestic landscape, from strikingly different perspectives.
Bernard Dellario brings the outside in with his elegantly hued gouaches and oils. His inspiration is endless. From its creek beds to the tree canopies, rambling and rolling Rock Creek Park provides Dellario’s biggest canvas. The painter’s urban scapes are just as immersive: that familiar climb up the steep, Connecticut Avenue hill; a hot and steamy afternoon around Dupont Circle; the turreted rooflines of Logan Circle have a strong local calling. President of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters, among the oldest active artist organizations in the metropolitan area, Dellario paints and teaches throughout the Maryland Eastern Shore and Washington, DC regions. He has won local and national awards. He lives in Easton, Maryland.
Brandon McDonald transports us to Washington’s favorite hiking trails, the BIlly Goat, the C&O Canal and the shoreline of the Potomac River. With the finest detail, his pen and ink impressions capture nature along the edges of daylight. McDonald’s skilled hand creates magical worlds where we find hillsides rugged with rock, paths that snake along waterways and vistas with uncanny depth of field. McDonald spent his early years in Washington state, where he began his lifelong love sketching Mother Nature and where he later earned an art degree at Pacific Lutheran University. This is McDonald’s second exhibition with Amy Kaslow Gallery. He lives in Cabin John, Maryland.
Andrea Limauro probes the very reason for Washington as a center of persuasion and power, literally channeling our view of that bastion of American Democracy through pressing climate change, migrant identity, and gun violence, and other vexing concerns. A visual artist and city planner, Limauro brings a remarkable dynamism to Washington landscape. He selects icons like the Lincoln Memorial and challenges us to see them from a wider angle. Limauro’s work has been widely exhibited in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Join them at 6pm Thursday, July 14th at Amy Kaslow Gallery for the opening of Washington Landscapes at Amy Kaslow Gallery. The exhibition will be on view through August 28th.
