The Washington Art Association announces a group exhibition that will open on September 3

WASHINGTON DEPOT — “House & Garden,” a group exhibition curated by Kenise Barnes, opens September 3 at the Washington Art Association, Bryan Memorial Plaza, Washington Depot.

The show continues until October 9. An opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on September 3.

From the gallery:

The connotation of home is emotionally charged, the very word “home” makes us think. The tenderness for our house and our garden has taken root more deeply in recent years. The ten artists in this exhibition do work that is distinctly individual, what unites them is that their work expresses care, the cultivation of growth and being the keeper of memories.

The artists in the exhibition work in a variety of media, including richly decorated colored and hand-cut prints, patterned paintings whose digital and collage elements add contemporary meaning and context, as well as several painters working in the medium more traditional painting. The exhibition includes two photographers whose flower photographs are elegant elegies to unique specimens and an artist whose work is a hybrid of photography and painting.

The artists are Mio Akashi, Yayoi Asoma, Julia Whitney Barnes, Lisa Dahl, KK Kozik, Kirsten Lamb, Melanie Parke, Jill Parisi, Roxa Smith and Roger Ricco.
