Opening Reception: Saturday, November 4 from 5pm to 8pm

Art is not the place to utter propositions, and everything about America has been said a million times. What’s left for a patriot is to desecrate the flag.

These big, exuberant paintings express the torn-up feelings induced by politics, love, sex – the death of a brother and of a longtime friend. Formally, Peterzell tries to push beyond a stylistic distinction – realism and abstraction – to the unstable line between them, crossing and re-crossing it, approaching from both sides, falling off and approaching again.

Gallery Hours:

  • Wednesday – Sunday: 1pm to 7pm
  • Fridays: 3pm to 9pm

Foundry Gallery is located at 2118 8th St. NW. For more information, visit
