Washington artist Madalyn Marcus will exhibit evocative large-scale paintings. Influenced by both textiles and jazz, these works create around themselves a field of active energy. Runs through November 4, 2017.
"Nature as Prototype" aims to examine the role of nature and biology as a source of inspiration for art and design. The artists included in this exhibition—Adam Nelson, Yoko K. and Grethe Wittrock—will collaborate to create an immersive environment that explores the changing nature of our relationship to the natural world.
