Dreary days, like today, make me love the company of my dog more than usual. In an attempt to share this love and perhaps brighten an otherwise gross day (unless you're into cold rain, which is just weird) I give you Walker, the gallery dog...

Shaw now has the Long View Gallery (1302 9th Street NW, open daily 11 – 7) and its director, Drew Porterfield says, “With the new Convention Center across the street and in close proximity to other cutting edge galleries, we feel right at home. Our focus is on local and regional artists with a clear voice whose styles range from traditional landscape to abstract portraiture.” Upcoming shows include New American Paintings that will feature Kimberly Frost, Rob Sparrow Jones, and Jamie Pocklington all selected by Stephen Bennett Phillips, curator of the Phillips Collection (March 21 – April 26), and Lenny Campello will curate a graduate student exhibition (June 7 – July 6.)

Ever Wonder...

I always wondered what happened to my artwork when I dropped it off at a framer. What does it take to get a bare piece of art safely placed behind glass?

When I was in school studying photography in NC and eventually at Parsons in NYC, I was slowly introduced to framing. After taking several framing courses in school, the art of framing finally made sense. In the same manner I documented my artwork (seen here), I decided to share a behind the scenes look at a simple custom frame order. A poster, with a mat, behind a piece of glass and a simple black frame. Enjoy...

Washington Post "Reception of the Month"

Check it out... Julia Beizer, Producer of the City Guide for the Post, calls our upcoming reception the "Reception of the month!" She writes in her monthly column:

Reception of the Month

I usually choose an opening reception with a great DJ or some other perk to fill this space, but this month, it's the quality of the art that hooked me. From 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, Long View Gallery celebrates the opening of a show of work by Jessie Mann and Mary Chiaramonte, two of the region's most talented female artists.

With her heavily textured paintings, Chiaramonte taps into a feeling of almost suicidal despair that resonates throughout the room. Drawings and cut-out works by the West Virginia-based artist will also be on view. Jessie Mann's eerie performance photographs made for a great show at Adamson last year. The photographs are absent at Long View, but the artist's Pollock-esque drip paintings will surely prove to be a more than able replacement.
