Virtual Panel: Thursday, June 17 from 6pm to 7pm

Landscape art is inclusive and varied in the Landscape group exhibit on view June 9 – July 3 at The Art League Gallery. It was juried by celebrated watercolorist John Salminen.

Paintings, drawings, photography, collage, and glasswork are among the 100+ representational and abstract pieces on display. Here, the idea of landscapes varies from remote vistas and moody streetscapes to industrialized horizons and sunny shorelines. In some of the artworks objects or figures, colors, textures, marks, and expressions are the elements that evoke a sense of place.

Join The Art League for a virtual artists panel with the Landscape exhibit award winners on Thursday, June 17 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. EDT; register here.

This month’s solo show at The Art League is Perspectives, Abol Bahadori’s series of abstract paintings inspired by the rediscovery of the perspective grid among Renaissance artists.

Bahadori uses trapezoids and triangles generated by 3D grids as abstract planes to showcase colors to prismatic effect. He further enhances some of his compositions with realistic figures and illustrations—humans, animals, insects— that break the symmetry and change the focal point.

Bahadori will be in virtual discussion about Perspectives and his artistry on Wednesday, June 16, from 6 – 7 p.m. EDT; register here.

The Art League is located at 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA.
