Spectrum of DC Art

Spectrum of DC Art

See the variety of DC’s visual art at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Farm Center today through Wednesday, August 25, 2010. The free exhibit features work by Washington artists applying for DC Arts Commission fellowships. This is a chance to see the latest painting, prints, photos and drawings by some of our favorites (Rex Weil, Rik Freeman, Roderick Turner, Elaine Langerman, Alec Simpson) as well as emerging artists. Sample works are on view here.

Recipients of the $5,000 awards, determined by an independent expert panel, will be announced later in the year. We trust a grantee show will follow.

Fellowships are a significant honor. While the award amount is modest, it can buy artists a few weeks of time in which to do work limited by nothing but their own creativity. Learn more about the Commission’s grant programs here.
