Join Washington Color School Project/IASG at the National Press Club on Monday Sept. 26th as one of Washington's great art writers looks back at a singular period in the city's history. Art critic Paul Richard will explore this defining period in Washington's art history in a talk on the Washington Color Painters.
As a long-time chronicler and participant in the Washington's art scene, Richard evokes a time when DC's most recognized cultural institutions existed only as plans for the future. Washington's artists and art collectors created their own places and exhibited paintings that were a departure from what had been shown before, in Washington or elsewhere.
Richard will talk about how painters like Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, and Howard Mehring changed the discussion of art in the city, and how the city influenced their vision.
The talk will be in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club, 529 24th St., N.W. starting at 7:00. This event is free and open to the public; to RSVP please e-mail director@washingtoncolorsc
