The Arts Club of Washington is pleased to announce its April 2018 Art Exhibitions. Held in the club’s historic Monroe and MacFeely Galleries, The Duality Show and Monotype Party will be on view from April 5 – April 27, 2019 with a free public reception on Friday, April 5, 2018 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

The Duality Show is located on the first floor and features works based on the photography of Steven Krensky. Comparing and contrasting photography with the visual art forms of painting and drawing, artists were commissioned to create a realistic likeness of the original photograph.

Upstairs in the second floor MacFeely Gallery, members and the public are invited to view Monotype Party. In the late 19th century artists began assembling together, sharing a printing press to create numerous images relatively quickly. Recreating the convivial atmosphere of those gatherings, Monotype Party focuses on the works of eight printmakers with pieces created during similar sessions over the past several years.

These exhibitions are curated by Sandra Warren Gobar, Smithsonian Institution, Faculty, Studio Arts.

The club’s cooperative Spilsbury gallery will focus on works by Mihira Karra. Other participating artists include; Lorna Aldrich, Ken Bachman, Gloria Benedetto-Brazelton, Camilla Bozzoli, Britt Conley, Vicki Doyle, Susie Eisinger, Alessandra Figliuoli, Heida Gramchow, Larry Jarvik, Martine Khadr-Van Schoote, Eleanor Lally, Peggy McNutt, Laura Patten, C. Pamela Palco, Denise Shamoun Phalen, Tihomir Petrov, Carol Porter, Tanya Roland, June Sherman, Frances Sniffen, Dick Swartz, Lucretia Tanner, Barbara Wright, and Jonathan Zuck.

Arts Club galleries are open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday through Friday and 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays. The Arts Club of Washington is located at 2017 I Street NW.  For more information please visit www.artsclubofwashington.org.
