Studio H (6pm to 9pm)

Studio H opens Amalgamations, new work by Steven Pearson.  Pearson paints large scale work and has created a 9’ x 9’ installation piece for the gallery.  Inspired by the deluge of quotidian information we are subjected to via social media, television, radio and email, Amalgamations translates this cacophony into vibrant colors and shapes that clash with one another eventually resulting in what Pearson calls “visual white noise”.  For additional details, click here.

Studio H is located at 408 H Street NE, second floor
