In his second solo show at Fraser, New York painter David FeBland returns as one of the hottest artists in the new urban realism wave of art sweeping the art scene. His absurd and almost surreal scenes of New York life have been called "hip hop Ashcan" by Art in America and he has been described as "the leading edge of the new Urban realists" by the New York Times. Read the review by the Washington Post here.

Catriona Fraser's photography concentrates exclusively on the historical subjects of Scotland. This is the first part, so far involving nine years of work, of a seven nation project called "Seven Celtic Nations" that seeks to document the historical landscapes of the remaining Celtic nations of Europe. For nine years she has photographed Scotland's 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. Art critic J. W. Mahoney wrote in the Washington Review: "The single eye of Catriona Fraser's camera has been directed toward the timeless world of her Celtic ancestors for many years now, and, even as the infrared film she uses is expressively sensitive to heat, the quality of the light in all her pictures saturates the spaces she photographs with an unforgettably intense aura of the holy." An opening reception was held on Friday, December 7, 2001 from 6.00pm - 9.00pm. Her whole body of works can be viewed here.
