A well known art critic from the Washington Post is fond of saying that "there are no young artists in DC." With Adam Bradley, the Fraser Gallery will debut the work of one of most talented young sculptors in the Greater Washington area. Bradley works with found objects to create stunning figurative sculptures which deliver emotions, fear, love and even shock. This is one of the hottest artists in Washington and one of the most talented as well. This is Bradley's first solo show - Read the Washington City Paper review here. A reception for Bradley was held on Friday, 19 February 1999 from 6-10 PM. Six sculptures were sold.

Over 1,500 art lovers attended the reception for the 1997 exhibition, which was focused on Mexican artist Frida Kahlo - Over seven million people have visited that web site! The 1998 Modern Icon exhibition was devoted to Spanish master Pablo Picasso. Both exhibitions were widely reviewed in various local and national art magazines and newspapers. The 1999 exhibition focuses on Spanish master Salvador Dali. 23 artists were selected from the nearly 300 entries that we received from many states, Europe, Canada and Latin America.

"Young Boy" by Fred Doloresco
On Easter Day of 685 history records that King Bridei of the Picts destroyed the largest invading Army ever to set foot in Scotland. The battle which followed, called the Battle of Nechtansmere by the English and Dunnichen by the Picts, remains one of the most significant turning points in ancient history and had Bridei lost that great battle, the Scotland of today would not exist and all of Britain would have been English. When it was over, the King ordered a stone to be carved and stood in the Angus valley to commemorate the great victory.
It is stones such as this which make the core of the subjects of British photographer Catriona Fraser's body of works. Her photography concentrates exclusively on the historical subjects of Scotland. Pictish stones, ancient ruins, mythical landscapes, megalithic stone circles, medieval fortresses and forgotten cemeteries all recorded in the brooding, ethereal media of B&W infrared film make up a project begun in 1992 to record the astounding history of the Scottish countryside.
"Photographs of Scotland" opens on November 19, 1999 for a two week exhibition at the Fraser Gallery with a reception for the photographer and gallery owner. The opening also marks the gallery's third anniversary and the beginning of its fourth year.
