      • Michael Gross: Abstraction
      • Katzen Museum First Floor Exhibition
      • VSPACER
      •  Michael Gross, painter and printmaker, offers expressive and emotionally filled works using a kaleidoscope of color.

      • Outliers: Kurt Godwin and Betsy Packard
      • Katzen Museum First Floor Exhibition
      • VSPACER
      • Curated by J.W. Mahoney, Outliers is a dialogue between two Washington-area artists who have been working outside the boundaries of mainstream contemporary art for over three decades. These artists have effectively transformed ordinary objects, found images, and simple matter into fundamentally new conditions of meaning. Such expansions of art's real possibilities are what outliers do.

      • Katzen Museum Second Floor Exhibition
      • VSPACER
      • In the early to mid 1980s masterful Washington realist John Winslow engineered a series of stunning changes in his work: Precisely defined spaces became ambiguous, right angles became swooping curves, and once-static figures left gravity behind to dance gracefully and crazily through the air. By radically recasting his art, Winslow set the stage for the surprising, vibrant and equally masterful ...more

      • Katzen Museum First Floor Exhibition
