Today's WaPo features an article on Manon Cleary at Edison Place Gallery By Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post Staff Writer, Page WE47
It isn't often -- or, I should say, it isn't often enough -- that the contributions of longtime Washington artists are recognized with the kind of thoughtful retrospective treatment being given the career of William Christenberry at the Smithsonian American Art Museum ... That's why "Manon Cleary: A Retrospective" -- an exhibition of more than 60 works spanning nearly 40 years organized by the Washington Arts Museum at Edison Place Gallery -- is such a rare treat."
"It rubs, like a grain of sand, against our notion of what's worth contemplating. Over time, as with pearls, that slight irritation has proved capable of forming great beauty."
