A State of Wonder
Jo Levine
Jo Levine’s show was inspired by a quote from the late pianist Glenn Gould: “The purpose of art is . . . the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.” In keeping with that purpose, her photographs transform details from the natural and man-made worlds into images with a quiet mystery designed to transport the viewer to a serene and wondrous state.

New Paintings
Sally Kauffman
Kauffman revisits “Relaxed States”, a series of paintings of Washingtonians listening to jazz on Friday nights in the National Sculpture Garden. The work celebrates pleasure through the sensuality of paint and interplay of colors. Almost human scale figures painted in saturated, flowing color on large format canvas entice the viewer to engage in their own narrative.

Illusions Revisited
Andrea Rowe Kraus
Kraus continues her exploration of Clouds explored from many different locations around the world. She enjoys the interplay of outlined shapes mixed with handmade paper collage. The work includes paintings, reduction lino prints, monoprints, and photographs some cut and collaged.
