This weekend at Glen Echo

This weekend is your last opportunity to take in the beauty of Glen Echo's Partnership Galleries' June exhibits; they close end-of-day on Sunday, the 25th! 

Stop by Stone Tower Gallery for a sci-fi journey through Blair Anderson's A Silversmith's Guide to the GalaxyPopcorn Gallery for a special exhibit by Yellow Barn Studio instructors, and Park View Gallery for unique silk painting in Nico Gozal's Wonderland.

Yellow Barn Gallery's weekend exhibit features works by painter, illustrator, and instructor Eric Westbrook. Opening Reception Saturday from 4-7pm.

Saturday morning, hear from a leader in the 'eco-artist' world during Art Clinic Online. Erwin Timmers has a fascinating background and impressive career transforming materials that often aren't recycled into art.

Later in the day on Saturday, tune in to Photoworks' Artist Talk with Sandy Sugawara and Catiana Garcia Kilroy as they share the difficult but important topic of their new book, Show Me the Way to Go Home: the World War II incarceration camps that held Japanese Americans.

On Sunday, Photoworks is contributing a fascinating talk to the Diverse Voices: A Juneteenth Celebration FESTIVAL OF FREEDOM. Documentary photographer Marvin Tupper Jones will be discussing the new exhibit at the Chowan Discovery Group: Building a Mixed Race Community.

Mark your calendars! Their third Art Walk of the season is coming up on Friday, July 7th!
