The Spring Art Walk returns as galleries, shops, restaurants, non-profits, and more open their doors to celebrate creativity, community, and Shop Small Georgetown week. The event is free and open to the public.

The Participating Locations & Their Exhibitions

Addison/Ripley Fine Art presents “To Grow a Life.” Isabel Manalo’s fifth exhibition at Addison/Ripley will be on display through May 28th. Featuring work on canvas, paper, and board, these new pieces are multilayered and dense, with an expressionist palette and a figurative center. Manalo has produced a new body of work that can well be described as Post Ecstatic Growth derived, weaving together the subjects and stylistic forays of all of her earlier work into a boldly colored, rich, humanistic tapestry. The title, extremely self-referential, pays homage to two of the artist’s earliest muses, her daughters, as well as to the compassionate life her own parents have given her. https://addisonripleyfineart.com | 1670 Wisconsin Ave NW

African Union Mission presents African art from the African diaspora. The African Union Mission (AU) is a continental body consisting of the 55 member states that make up the countries of the African Continent. It was officially launched in 2002 as a successor to the Organization of African Unity (OAU). The mandate of the African Union Mission to the United States is to develop, maintain, undertake resource mobilization, and consolidate constructive and productive institutional relationships between the African Diaspora, the Bretton Woods Institutions, as well as the U.S. universities, and the private sector. https://au.int/en | 1640 Wisconsin Ave NW

Washington Print Makers Gallery presents “En May, Fais Ce Qu’il Te Plait”, Featuring works by Naurya Pelletier-Bacquert. A celebration of the return of Spring

Naurya says: I am a French photographer artist, and I have the pleasure and honor to present a selection of my works in tribute to the Spring at the Washington Printmakers Gallery. The exhibition is an invitation to reconnect with joy, colors, poetry, and desire.

Spring returns, inviting us to take full advantage of what life can offer us after the long winter period…When the sunny days are here, the weather brings out the colors of life! May is the month of renewal, beauty, and radiance!. My artistic work highlights aesthetics, shapes, textures, and colors: from black and white to pastel.

From pastel to bright colors, and from simple shapes to more complex ones, to compose an abstract and dreamlike visual. This selection of works is like a bouquet of flowers from May offered to the public, an ode to the Spring in a way! http://www.washingtonprintmakers.com | 1641 Wisconsin Ave NW
