The Kreeger Museum presents In Unison: 20 Washington, DC Artists.  The exhibition is a result of a project initiated by the renowned Washington, DC artist Sam Gilliam who invited 20 artists from the community, working in different styles and media, to come together to make a series of five monoprints, one of which would be selected for the show. Curating the selection of prints were Judy A. Greenberg, Director of The Kreeger Museum, Marsha Mateyka of the Marsha Mateyka Gallery, Claudia Rousseau, Ph.D., art critic and art historian and Sam Gilliam.
Counted among the participants are painters, sculptors, digital media and installation artists and a few printmakers, all established names in the DC region. Each was challenged to make monoprints in the welcoming environment of the print studios at the George Mason University School of Art. Printmaking is traditionally a collaborative art form. This enriching experience provided opportunities for interaction among the artists and promoted a true sense of collaboration.
The Kreeger Museum has always supported and encouraged artists in the DC metro area. Director Judy A. Greenberg states, "We are pleased to exhibit these 20 monoprints by outstanding talent whose work clearly shows the extended range of style and expression found in Washington, DC."
The exhibition is sponsored by the Millenium Arts Salon which has been serving the Washington, DC arts community for 10 years. The exhibition will be on view at The Kreeger Museum from January 15-February 26, 2011.
