Zenith Gallery’s 70s-90s shows often featured neon artists. To celebrate its 40th anniversary year, Zenith brings back the work of those artists and new ones using varied forms of light technology and mixed media in their work. New technologies added to older ones present the best in artwork featuring artificial light at Zenith’s new show, Light Up Your heArt.
Reaching global heights, neon launched within cities especially in Times Square and Las Vegas as signage. In more recent times, there was a resurgence of neon and light art that propelled artists to incorporate or use neon as the main medium in their works. Since the enhancement of technology, this has created a new frontier within the medium, encouraged by the development with LED lights and video.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Zenith Gallery and to celebrate this milestone, they are hosting a series of exhibitions at their two locations; the 1111 sculpture space in Downtown DC and the Iris Street gallery off upper 16th street in the Shepherd Park Neighborhood. Downtown will host a retrospective of the three different locations of Zenith while, Iris St will host exhibits of artists that have been represented by Zenith gallery for decades and others they are representing now. Zenith Gallery continues to be dedicated to finding the unusual and the extremely well-done art over our 40-year history. They like our arts and crafts unique, with their art well-crafted and their craft well art’ed!
