Gallery Talk with Dr. L. Erich Keel, Sunday, September 10 at 2pm

In partnership with Susan Calloway Fine Art of Washington, DC, the Athenaeum Gallery is pleased to present Seduction featuring artist Leslie Nolan. Nolan’s abstract figurative paintings depict what is felt rather than what is seen. Ambiguity and uncertainty are powerful forces rendered eloquently with the use of bold colors and energetic brushwork. Her pieces are influenced by her personal exploration within various spiritual and energetic themes pertaining to modern life. She is a firm believer that “the artist is pivotal to how we see and understand the world.”

The gallery talk on September 10th at 2 pm will feature both Ms. Nolan as well as Dr. L. Erich Keel. Dr. Keel served as Head of Education for the Kreeger Museum until his retirement in 2013. Currently, he lectures on twentieth-century German art and leads art-themed study tours to Europe.

  • Thursday, Friday, and Sunday: 12pm to 4pm
