Sally Levie
Levie’s recent work focuses mostly on forests and trees. Regardless of where she goes, the artist’s eye goes to the beauty of forests, and the negative space between trees, leaves, branches and individual trees. Through drawings and painting, she simplifies and abstracts trees and forests from different areas of the world.

This show is presented in collaboration with The Amazon Conservation Association. Their mission is to protect the world’s most diverse landscapes, to train the next generation of Amazonian conservationists, and partner with communities to support communities that sustain biodiversity. They work to protect the rainforest.

In Relation
Thierry Guillemin
While Guillemin’s abstract work is always rich in energy and movement, there is a more fluid sense of space, a certain permeability that develops over time. There exists less of a male affirmation, and more of a realization that the limits of the form are porous, subject to many influences. And a desire to give a painting the freedom to continue its development beyond the studio, in the eyes of those who come in relation to it.

Pictures at an Exhibition: Points of View
Gary Anthes
Anthes offers views of people looking at art in museums across the country, including Washington, Richmond, New York, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Detroit, Cleveland, and San Francisco. Says Anthes, “In the arts world it’s the artists (naturally) who get all the attention, but the people who support art by engaging with it are equally important – and sometimes more interesting.”
