Themes & Etudes: Paintings at Glen Echo

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 11.55.02 AMI’m going to exhibit about 35 paintings at the Yellow Barn Studio & Gallery at Glen Echo, at 7300 MacArthur Blvd. in Glen Echo.  The core of the show will be 10 paintings I did for the Washington Ethical Society on their monthly themes (Creativity, Simplicity, Desire, and so forth); most of the rest of the paintings undertaken as studies to develop my craft. Hence, the tentative title, “Themes & Etudes,” which also expresses the connection I feel between the visual arts and musical composition.
The paintings have to be for sale, but collecting money is not the central purpose, and all of the net proceeds (after the gallery’s commission, the sparkling cider, and the brie) will go to charity.

The show will be up only for the weekend of April 15th and 16th — Saturday from noon to eight, and Sunday from noon until five — so be sure you don’t let this event slip through the cracks!

About Barry Galef

I am an "economist emeritas" and a visual artist. I've been carving distinctive Jack o'Lanterns since I started college, closing in on 50 years ago. For now, this site has links to a half-dozen Jack o'Lanterns; I'll be uploading images and descriptions from eight or ten more over the next few months. A couple of years ago I added pages with oil paintings that I had presented in a show at a local art school; more of those will be coming as well.
