Opening Reception: Saturday, October 24 from 4pm to 8pm

The Fred Schnider Gallery of Art (888 N. Quincy Street, Arlington, VA) welcomes back the work of Arlington-based artist and art professor, David Carlson. An abstract painter, Carslon was the first exhibitor at the gallery when it opened in May of 2018.

He began creating this series, Flattening Time over a year ago with the question, “What is consciousness?” The concept of flattening time came out of his contemplation of juncture. With the arrival of COVID-19 and the disruption of all aspects of life, including the unexpected passing of his sister, time and life gained a new relevance.

The exhibit officially opens to the public on Saturday, October 3rd, by appointment. Those wanting to view Flattening Time are welcome to call the gallery at 703.405.1642 to schedule a private viewing of the exhibit within the weekly hours of Thursday-Sunday, 12-7pm. The gallery requests that visiting groups not exceed more than six people to align with safety advisements during the COVID pandemic.

David Carlson is an artist, professor at Marymount University and serves on the Arlington Commission for the Arts. The work of Carlson embodies beautiful and complex abstract painting to equally deliberate and meditative video works. Carlson has consistently made pieces that have a unifying, spiritual quality.
