Visual Poetry: A Collaborative Exhibit of Image and Word
September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Popcorn Gallery
The Glen Echo Park Partnership presents Visual Poetry featuring the work of Photoworks artists who were challenged to ponder the poetry in their images and to assign words to the photographs they chose for this exhibition. Fourteen photographers, Photoworks faculty and students, have agreed to challenge their vision by exploring two creative art forms – images captured through a lens and words that can describe, challenge and illuminate. Photoworks is the resident digital and darkroom photography studio at Glen Echo Park. Observe a mix of images and words that immerse the audience in the photographers’ challenge. Guests can think, ponder, and write in the quiet space set aside for reflection.
Saturdays & Sundays, 11am – 6pm

Freeze Frame: Ethan Rochmis
September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Stone Tower Gallery
Freeze Frame is an exploration into the interplay between materials and their environment by mixed media artist Ethan Rochmis. The science-inspired work is composed using variations of natural environments paired with water, ink, and paper that lead to an infinite number of expressible realities. The artwork is what Rochmis calls “Ice Inks,” an original style that he has practiced for 3 years. In each environmental setting the frost translates its own character and affects the expression of the material. We are excited to debut Rochmis’ first exhibition in this unique style. Experience the phenomenon when ink meets ice. As a bonus, Rochmis will also display his burl bowl collection.
Saturdays & Sundays, 11am – 6pm

Emerging Light: Paintings by Denise Dittmar & Students
September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Park View Galley
Emerging Light features paintings by long-time Glen Echo Park instructor Denise Dittmar and her students from Emerging Young Artists at the Yellow Barn, Young Creative Spirit, & other classes. The paintings in this show are strongly influenced by artists who work with light, including the classic Impressionists, as well as Walt Bartman and John Murray at The Yellow Barn. The detailed brush strokes and vibrant colors emphasize movement in each painting. Audiences will appreciate the reverence for the Impressionist genre by Dittmar and her students.
Monday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm

Glen Echo Park is located at 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. For more information, visit
