Ingrained: Sculpture and Furniture in Wood
January 5 to 27 // Popcorn Gallery
The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Ingrained: Sculpture and Furniture in Wood. This exhibition celebrates the ways wood as a medium lends itself to diverse interpretations as both sculptural and functional forms. Three artists bring their own perspectives as they explore the beauty of wood. Alex Kasten’s wall-hung and sculptural forms explore transformation and reinvention, while Davrill Nash’s furniture lends a simple elegance to wooden forms. Lynda Smith-Bugge’s sculptures reveal interior strength, spirit and timelessness, emerging from their rough-hewn original exteriors.
Saturdays & Sundays, 12pm – 6pm

Depths of Strength: Cherie M. Redlinger and Klaudia Levin
January 5 to 27 // Stone Tower Gallery
Depths of Strength is a collaboration between two artists, Cherie M. Redlinger and Klaudia Levin. Redlinger is a printmaker and Levin is a sculptor. The yin and yang of positive and negative space brings strength to their work. In this exhibition, two artists come together from different mediums to find one voice.
Saturdays & Sundays, 12pm – 6pm

Somewhere Over the Sea: Pottery by Eunkyung Han
January 5 to 26 // Park View Gallery
The Glen Echo Park Partnership is present, Somewhere Over the Sea, showcasing ceramic work by 2018 Labor Day Art Show’s Park View Artist Awardee Eunkyung Han. Han, originally from South Korea, started working in pottery as a hobby after moving to the United States and found inspiration with an influential teacher at Harvard’s ceramics studio who cultivated her enthusiasm for the art. After a several-year hiatus, she relocated to Maryland and continued her pottery career at Glen Echo Pottery. Han always admired the curved line of architect Antoni Gaudi, who said, “La línea recta es del hombre, la curva pertenece a Dios.” [The straight line belongs to man and the curved line to God.] Han incorporates her own beautiful curves in her recent work, and is inspired by intriguing natural objects.
Monday through Saturday, 10am – 6pm
