Saturday and Sunday, 12pm – 6pm
The Glen Echo Park Partnership and the National Capital Art Glass Guild are pleased to present Wild Things. These are turbulent times! Simply put, we are surrounded by change. This inspired the search for art glass evoking the mythical, wildness in nature, the ocean, and the cosmos. The show is juried by a distinguished panel, including Laurie Brown, glass artist; Manny Flecker, ceramics instructor; Sherry Hawkins, glass artist and painter; and Sonya Kitchens, Director of the Montpelier Arts Center. Join artists at the Artists’ Reception and vote on the People’s Choice Award with a gift of $200 to the winning artist. Artist Talks will be presented as part of Carousel Day, April 28.

The World in Infrared: Landscapes by Sheila Galagan
March 31 to April 29, 2018 // Stone Tower Gallery
Saturday and Sunday, 12pm – 6pm
The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present The World in Infrared: Landscapes by Sheila Galagan. Local photographer Sheila Galagan offers a selection of photographs shot using infrared capture, an unusual method that when printed in black and white produces striking dark gray skies and white vegetation. Galagan’s photographs, mostly landscapes, are taken in local natural settings often with some man-made components. Most of her images are shot with a digital camera modified to respond to near-infrared light. There are also some images taken the old-fashioned way with black and white infrared film. Some of the digital images have textures applied to them to add a further sense of depth. The film images have been printed using the lith printing technique, which uses certain papers and chemicals to produce a similar effect to textured digital images. Galagan has taught photography in several places, including Glen Echo Photoworks and Montgomery County Public Schools. She is also a member of f11, a Women’s Photography Collective, which exhibits locally.

I Draw the Line: Oil Paintings by Robert LeMar
March 31 to April 28, 2018 // Park View Gallery
Monday to Saturday, 10am – 6pm
Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present I Draw the Line: Oil Paintings by Robert LeMar. In this exhibition of paintings, LeMar experiments with different approaches to outlining, while seeking to maintain a strong sense of realism. Although done entirely with oil on canvas, every painting is really about the drawn line. Color also plays a major role in the work, as it conveys light and form. Even so, it all starts with a line drawn on canvas. In this work, LeMar seeks to champion that line. LeMar was the recipient of the Park View Artist Award at the 2017 Labor Day Art Show at Glen Echo Park.

Glen Echo Park is located at 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. For more information, visit glenechopark.org/calendar.
