Hyattsville, MD—Spatial Rapport brings together the work of two artists in an exploration of space, place, and scale. Each artist exhibits a selection of their own mixed media work well as a series of pieces made collaboratively. Schieszer’s abstract work offers balance to McLaughlin’s more austere lines and forms. Together, Schieszer and McLaughlin aim to create a larger dialogue about space and daily environments.

"Like a craft-store Andy Warhol, Lê simplifies or obscures faces and turns landscape features into mere blocks of bright color. He also arrays 3-D lattices over and under parts of the pictures, echoing those detention-camp fences.

Hyattsville, MD—For Khánh H. Lê, identity plays a central role in artistic output. Recent refugee crises have made the artist reflect on his personal experience of waiting with his family for permission to come to the United States in the late 80s. Through prints and mixed-media collage, he layers together fragmented memories and images, including photographs of D.C.'s Vietnamese community, to create a new historical narrative...

Imar Hutchins’s portraits of figures from African American history contain multitudes, but in this case that phrase refers to experiences as much as chromosomes. The D.C. artist’s “Inheritance,” at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, includes five larger-than-life collage-paintings of such notables as author James Baldwin and surveyor Benjamin Banneker, as well as Lyman T. Johnson, the educator whose lawsuit desegregated the Universi...

Each work measures 6 feet tall and 4.5 feet wide with subjects ranging from the artist’s mother to the late musician, Prince.

OCTOBER 19 - NOVEMBER 23, 2018

Hard and Soft explores work that pushes the tactile quality of materials. Combined, the work of Thea Gregorius, Allen Linder, Michael Enn Sirvet, and Tim Tate questions notions of soft (ornamental, safe, feminine) and hard (resolute, unwavering, masculine) while it explores the relationships between sculpture and paper. Texture is central to this exhibition. Sculpture of metal and stone will be sh...
