Exhibition Overview

Washington, D.C., artist Andrea Way’s surfaces are beautiful and exquisitely detailed. Her process is original and idiosyncratic, which Washington independent art critic David Tannous describes as “…the combination of two almost antithetical elements: the elaboration of a plan or code or formula, on the one hand, and the intervention of accidents and unplanned activities, on the other.” Way is a master of her medium, but she knows enough to let the works breathe.
