Porch Projects Presents: 19 Ways of Looking at a Painting

I was of three minds,
Like a tree
In which there are three blackbirds.
--Wallace Stevens, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”

The Washington, D.C., area has long been a center of carefully nurtured painting practices. Through means as varied as photorealism and color field abstraction, and all methods in between, painters here explore the analytical potential of mark and color for understanding the world around us.
Nineteen examples of such practices are gathered together for this exhibition. The works have been installed over the course of several weeks in response to the Porch Projects space and in relationship to each other. This contextual way of looking at and thinking about painting will foster new connections and meanings within the works being made in our area.
Participating Artists:
Julia Brown, Deborah M. Carroll Anzinger, Tim Campbell, Emily Do, Christopher Dolan, Mike Dowley, Thomas Drymon, Laura Elkins, Pat Goslee, Peter E. Harper, Becca Kallem, Brian Kelley, Magnolia Laurie, Joren Lindholm, Melissa McCutcheon, Katherine Mann, Megan Mueller, Lisa K. Rosenstein, Katherine Sable

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 11, 2012, 4-7 pm
Exhibition on view by appointment through mid-October, 2012.
