1. Addison/Ripley, 1670 Wisconsin Ave NW
Exhibit: “WC RICHARDSON”
Addison/Ripley is pleased to present a curated, memorial exhibition of paintings by W. C. Richardson. Selected from the extensive archive of paintings in the artist’s estate, it is a small sampling from decades of work, focusing on paintings from the last twenty years. We are grateful to Chip’s family for giving us access and a free hand to select work. Seen together, the paintings in this exhibition reveal a master craftsman who created bold, highly. detailed explorations composed of layer after layer of paint and to a melody the artist was always eager to share.
2. Washington Printmakers Gallery, 1675 Wisconsin Ave NW
Exhibit: ”New Beginning” (celebrating the new gallery space!)

4. Gallery Article 15, 1624 Wisconsin Ave NW
Exhibit: “Le Monde d’Aujourd’hui: Focus on the Environment”
Focus on the Environment highlights the works of Enyejo Bakaka and Glory Kanga, two of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)’s leading contemporary artists. Both artists often focus on environmental issues, though with highly different styles. Enyejo Bakaka’s works draw from surrealism, including whimsical touches such as water bottles as feet, to highlight the connection between man and nature. For Kanga, man’s relationship is intimately intertwined with nature, as seen is the wood branches representing the human body.
