Opening Reception
Saturday June 7, 5-8 pm

District Fine Arts presents In Transit
a group show featuring paintings and photographs.

William Adams - painter. My paintings contain references to the figure, nature and dreams. My paintings attempt to capture a thought or a memory. The arrangement and choice of imagery may suggest a narrative and give the work surrealistic overtones. I refer to my paintings as an automatic pilot/ spontaneous combustion creation, allowing the imagery to emerge on the canvas, while absurd accidents occur in the painting process and at times remain. The layering of elements are imposed on one another, until a harmony is achieved. Thus, the evocation of memory leads me to act and a painting is born.

S. Gratz
- artist photographer. Mr. Gratz is an artist living and working in Washington, D.C.

Stoff Smulson - photographer. Stoff was born and raised in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the art collective Decatur Blue.

Veronica Uribe - painter. Veronica, who lives and works in Bogota, Colombia has shown her works in various solo and group exhibitions around the world including Australia, Canada, Colombia, New York, and Spain. She contributes three new series of works for her first show in Washington, D.C. In these paintings she explores "emotional mappings." Moments of emotional transit can be mapped, they can be placed on a surface to be retraced and found on a time and spatial plane. They act as geographical locations and points where both the roughness and the easiness of landscapes can be metaphors of emotional situations.
