Bloom in Forgotten Valley by Dongpei He; Watercolor


The Art League Gallery kicks off the fall season with Headlands by Tania Karpowitz and The Principles of Nature by Dongpei He, two solo exhibits inspired by the natural world. Both exhibits, along with the October 2021 Open Exhibit are on view in the Gallery through November 7.

Expressive faces merge with boundless skies and landscapes in Headlands, a series of large-scale portraiture by Tania Karpowitz. Breaching the irregular, jagged edge that exists between person and place, Karpowitz’s paintings push the boundaries between a face and the environment, where head, mountain, and sky encounter one another, joined and distinct. Karpowitz will discuss the works in this exhibit in an in-person artist talk at The Art League Gallery on Sunday, October 24, from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.; RSVP here.

The Principles of Nature, by painter Dongpei He, features graceful, luminous visions of peony flowers. Painted in watercolor and ink on rice paper using traditional oriental brushwork, Dongpei’s work is a celebration of the beauty and perseverance of nature. Join He in conversation online Thursday, October 21, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.; register here.

This month’s group show, juried by artist and Howard University art instructor Summer Brown, features 124 artworks in a variety of mediums—painting, sculpture, photography, and fiber art—by member artists. Open exhibits are a great way to view the breath and styles of Art League artists.
