McLean Project for the Arts exhibitions

McLean Project for the Arts
Realism Now:  Citiscapes 

Opening reception and gallery talk 

Thursday, September 16,  7 -9 pm 

Curated by painter and Corcoran College of Art + Design Professor Joey P. Mánlapaz, this exhibit features work by three painters who draw on the city as subject matter to produce paintings executed in a photorealist style. Says Mánlapaz, “As a painter who focuses on Washington, D.C. cityscape, I sought fellow contemporary artists who paint cityscapes in the same style. Denis Peterson of New York and Glenn M. Moreton of Maryland both exemplify cityscape photorealism at its best. The precision, color and exactitude they use in representing their respective cities are rich in technique and composition.”

Also opening that night are  
Heaven and Earth:  Prints by Joanna Axtmann
The Topography of Memory:
New Works by Raye Leith


Free and open to the public
