November 17, 2007 through January 5, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 17th
6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Gallery 211 presents the exhibit Landscapes featuring the oil paintings of Washington, DC painter Freya Grand. Ms. Grand's large scale landscapes are evocative in their otherworldly theme, and yet they are simultaneously contemporary. These works illuminate the mutability of the passage of time within a particular space. The images are drawn from places as diverse as the Andes and coastal Ireland, and they reflect Grand's love of the mysterious beauty of the natural world.
As a counterpoint to the large works, Ms. Grand will also be showing a series of miniatures: very tiny oil paintings on mylar. These intimate studies of landscape painting invite close inspection, as if one is peering through a keyhole at a world on the other side.
A catalogue of the show will be available at Gallery 211, with an introductory essay by Jack Rasmussen, Director of the Katzen Art Museum at American University in Washington, DC.
