Upcoming: 50 Egg Tempera Paintings by Caroline Adams, On view July 26 - August 30, 2014, Artist Reception: Friday, August 15, 6-8pm
Mix egg yolk with powdered pigment and you have egg tempera, a painting medium that has been used for over 1,000 years. A successful Kickstarter campaign provided the funding for Washington artist Caroline Adams's project to make 50 paintings in egg tempera. Combining 21st century crowdsourcing with ancient techniques is a natural path for the classically-minded artist. Throughout the year, Caroline has documented her progress, building layers of color slowly, and sharing her struggles and successes through her Kickstarter site: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2143956499/50-egg-tempera-paintings
The project culminates in an exhibition of the fifty small landscapes at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Georgetown. Adams noted that they will be hung together "to feel like glimpses of a larger space".
Upcoming: Maud Taber-Thomas, September 12 - October 11, 2014. Opening reception, Friday September 12, 6 -8pm
