Working in an array of media, Nancy Frankel has found her niche in sculpture. She describes her work as "organic geometry," where she combines her love for natural forms with architecture. This produces an exploration into the deeper meaning of the materials rather than on a surface level. "Space, either encapsulated or activated, and a sense of balance, precarious yet centered, are integral to my work." Working since 1950s, Frankel has established her importance as a women sculpture in the DC art scene.
From New Orleans, Anne Marchand has been surrounded by color her whole life, it is no coincidence that her painting's focus is on the interplay of colors. Initially inspired by the Hubble telescope images of outer space, her paintings emulate the same energy from nebulae and galaxies. While the paint flows organically, Marchand has a geometric foundation to her paintings. "These works invite the visual vibration in the eye of the viewer, along with their sense of wonder, introspection, and imagination." Anne Marchand has been a force in the DC art scene since the 1970s and has a traveling exhibition at the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia, the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia, and the Mary Harden Cultural Arts Center in Gadsden, Alabama.
