Etchings, linocuts, mezzotints, lithographs and other printmaking genres by Foust, Grant Silverstein, Alejandro Escobedo, James Skvarch, John Jacobsmeyer and David Bruner. We will also include works by Cuban printmaker Niurka Iņurrieta, the first works ever exhibited in the United States by this respected artist. Unfortunately Srta. Iņurrieta's visa has been denied by the US and she was not be able to attend the opening reception which took place on Friday, January 21, 2000 from 6-9 PM in spite of snow and ice and Arctic temperatures in Washington. Read several reviews of this show here.

February 18 - March 15, 2000

We discovered Scott Hutchison at Art-O-Matic, a Washington arts extravaganza that took place early this year. Art-O-Matic was a 300-artist plus exhibition organized in 1999 by an ad-hoc group of artists. Randy Asplund is a brilliant artist and illustrator whose work has been part of the visual development of Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and other such classic science fiction icons. This will be the official Washington gallery debut for both these talented artists. An opening reception was held on Friday, February 18, 2000 from 6-9 PM despite a huge explosion which closed several streets around the gallery and snarled traffic in Georgetown all night! A second reception was held on Friday, February 25 from 6-9 PM. Read several reviews of this show here

Erik Sandberg is one of the most brilliant young painters in the Washington area. Already collected by some very important entities in the nation's capital, this will be Sandberg's first commercial gallery debut in Washington. He is joined by John Jacobsmeyer, an acclaimed New England painter whose work (like Sandberg's) often explores the surreal and the imaginary. This is also Jacobsmeyer's debut in Washington. A reception for both these very talented painters was held on Friday, April 21, 2000 from 6-9 PM. Read the terrific reviews of this exhibition by the Washington Post here.

May 19 - June 14, 2000

DC artist Greg Denton draws, paints, sculpts and writes poetry. He considers himself to be primarily a figurative painter. Equally versed in color or strictly black and white, Denton borrows from his background and life experiences in order to paint the sensuous figures that he loves. The paintings have a story to tell and his subjects cause the viewer to ponder just what they have to "say", but the painter leaves it up to the individual to discover whatever that might be. A reception for this brilliant painter was held on Friday, May 19, 2000 from 6-9 PM.

"...in this Valley of Tears" by Greg Denton


June 16 - July 19, 2000

Reviews of this show by the Washington Post, the Georgetown Current, Georgetown Crier and Washingtonpost.com can be read here.

August 18 - September 13, 2000

Our annual homage to an artist whose work and life cross borders and time. This year we honor Norman Rockwell and our show runs concurrently with the major Rockwell retrospective in Washington, DC's Corcoran Museum of Art. This exhibition focuses on the work of artists who have re-interpreted Rockwell's iconic artwork in a year 2000 setting or who honor the American master in some way via their artwork.

September 15 - October 18, 2000

The work of Katie Dell Kaufman is arresting in its visual power and presence. She pushes the limit of two-dimensional art with her work, which incorporates drawing and painting into found and constructed objects which deliver a creative conception and idea. Nancy Jeffreys is one of the nation's top muralists, but her small, intimate paintings also manage to capture a strange world of made up elements where the distinction between reality and surrealism meld and blend. This will be the formal DC gallery debut for both these young artists. An opening reception was held on Friday, September 15 from 6-9 PM.
