Georgetown Openings

Next Friday, December 2, from 6-8PM, two of the Canal Square galleries are having openings from 6-8PM.

On the second floor, the Anne C. Fisher Gallery hosts a reception in honor of their well-received, current exhibition, South American Holiday. This lively exhibition by several South American artists is a feast for the eyes! It includes mixed media collages by Joan Belmar, paintings in acrylic on canvas and acrylic on paper by Patricia Secco, and monoprints, hanging paper constructions and the video Zapatos Blancos by artist Helga Thomson.

Under the Anne C. Fisher Gallery, our neighbor Parish Gallery opens a new group show with work by Floyd Coleman, Victor Ekpuk, Ron Flemmings, Liani Foster, Naza McFarren, Roberto Morassi, Deanna Schwartzberg, Stephanie Parish Taylor, and Yvette Watson.


The Smithsonian American Art Museum has awarded the 2005 Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art to Elizabeth Johns, professor emerita of the history of art at the University of Pennsylvania.

Her recent book, Winslow Homer: The Nature of Observation, is recognized for its complex and sympathetic portrait of the artist. She has written several influential books on American art, and curated a number of exhibitions.

Johns will be giving a lecture on Thursday, December 8 starting at 3:30 p.m. with a reception to follow.
