Anne Marchand and Alan Binstock
May 5 – June 4, 2006
Opening Events: Friday, May 5, 6-9pm and Sunday, May 7, 2-5pm

I helped install the show on Wednesday. It's always amazing to take the work out of the studio and see it in a new light. The gallery is tweaking lighting and we are all getting ready to celebrate my newest body of work on Friday and Sunday. I have family coming in for the event. I hope you can share the joy to have this energetic work up on the gallery walls. Between this show and the mural installation for the Takoma Community Center, my art life has been full this winter and spring. If you can't make the opening, I'll be in town during the month of May. We can arrange a meeting through the Zenith gallery. Alan Binstock's glass sculpture is stunningly beautiful and our themes resonate. Be sure to visit soon. Here's the gallery press release for the exhibition.

Anne Marchand, "Sarpej," mixed media, 68" x 58"

Zenith Gallery is proud to host concurrent solo exhibitions for longtime resident artist, Anne Marchand, and newcomer, Alan Binstock. Both are fixtures of the Washington DC and Maryland art communities. Anne, a Washington artist and New Orleans native, has been an important contributor to the Washington community for many years. Her murals and public art projects can be seen throughout the city.

Anne Marchand sees space through movement. In this latest body of abstract, mixed media paintings, her compositions explore the connectedness of energy in the universe. Drawing inspiration from images of the Hubble telescope, her paintings contain the vastness of galaxies that morph into more recognizable and intimate earthly landscapes.

Mt. Rainier, Maryland artist, Alan Binstock is a sculptor, yoga devotee and NASA architect. His current body of work incorporates stone, glass and steel and is self-reflective. The sculptures balance, support and cantilever their way towards a visual resolution. Nancy Ungar of Sculpture Magazine writes, “he uses his art to give shape to the spiritual and intellectual searching that has informed his life. His elegant, minimal forms are honed to a poetic accuracy that illuminates complex statements through form, contrasting materials and, especially, color.”
