Pursuit of Color: Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro
September 1 to 30, 2018 // Stone Tower Gallery
The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Pursuit of Color by Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro. This exhibition presents recent oils and pastels from artist Gonzalo Ruiz Navarro about the elusive nature of color. Gonzalo finds his inspiration in how light reveals reality and how it affects the color we see in objects and landscapes. He is a realist painter but when asked about his favorite subject, he replies “color.” There are many theories about how color works in nature and how you can interpret that in a painting, but ultimately, Gonzalo finds that is something we will always try to interpret and will never be fully captured.
Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 6pm.

Emerge: Sally MacGeorge
September 1 to 29, 2018 // Park View Gallery
Why does color, form and balance speak to us so? In an exhibition called Emerge, Sally MacGeorge has pondered this question, as she has gone back to her creative roots. What emerges on the canvas are bold, colorful, abstract works, in acrylic, that exude a vibrant, positive energy. Sally is an artist originally from New Zealand, living in Washington, DC and this is her first solo exhibition.
Monday through Saturday, 10am – 6pm.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 4 to 6pm
