First, Mount Rainier residents Krista Schlyer and Shahin Shikhaliyev are featured in a new group show in Gateway CDC's 39th Street Gallery at the Gateway Arts Center. Migrations: Perspectives on an elemental impulse features artistic perspectives on the theme Migrations, featuring photographer Krista Schlyer, painter Shahin Shikhaliyev, photographer Sonia Keiner, and digital artist Favianna Rodriguez. Krista's contribution builds on the amazing work she started as the leader of ILCP's Borderlands project. Gateway CDC showed some of the stunning Borderlands imagery at the EZ Storage studios during their first annual Art of Dessert fundraiser. [Huffington Post story on the Borderlands project]
|Possibly my favorite Borderlands image, though the nature & wildlife shots are stunning.|
Emerging from Hyattsville is happening up at the other end of the Gateway Arts District, sponsored by artdc. From the show's website:
Since 2009, artdc has had the pleasure of bringing Washington, DC-area artists to the public’s view at the artdc Gallery. They have had great success, and have built a loyal following. However, they haven’t yet created the opportunity to showcase Hyattsville, MD, artists as a group in the gallery.
Now they are making up for lost time, and representing six Hyattsville artists: Ed Burck, Jim Landry, Stevie O' Grady, Joe Rodgers, Ruth Horlick, and yours truley, Chris Suspect.
