Reception: Thursday, July 8, 2010
6:30pm - 8:30pm
Long View Gallery announces the upcoming exhibition “Informed Design,” opening on July 8 and running through August 1. “Informed Design” strives to expound on the role of art objects within the context of interior design and architecture. This exhibition will feature a sampling of the inventory in our newly launched corporate art consulting branch, as well as two architectural design vignettes by leading D.C. architects Ernesto Santalla and David Jameson.
In contrast to typical gallery shows in which pieces hang on blank white walls, “Informed Design” demonstrates how art can influence or interact with an interior. “Informed Design” aims to explore the relationship between art and architecture, and argues that exceptional works of art establish dialogues with their surroundings. The show will encompass a wide variety of abstract paintings and low relief sculptures by artists on our corporate art consulting roster. These artists include: Joan Konkel, Anne Marchand, Victoria Cowles, Steve Griffin, Patricia Burns, Wanda Wainsten, and Susan Finsen.
