Magic of the Ordinary
National Juried Exhibition, juried by Lois Wolford
at Gallery Underground in August
Dates: August 2-27, 2021 Mon-Fri 10am-6pm
Opening Reception Friday, August 6th from 5-7pm
Gallery Underground in August presents, in our Focus Gallery, Magic of the Ordinary, a national juried exhibition of works juried by noted watercolor artist Lois Wolford. The Pop Art Movement challenged traditional fine art values and brought art based on popular culture and everyday items into the mainstream. It is typical that normal scenes and objects are overlooked, as they can be seen as commonplace or dull. However, magic can be found in the ordinary when it is interpreted as art. Artists were invited to look beyond and turn the ordinary into extraordinary, resulting in a compelling exhibition of works submitted from both the DMV area and across the country.
In our Main Gallery are new works by our members in all themes, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watermedia, sculpture, glass, ceramics, wood and metalwork.
These shows also mark the gallery’s return to in-person First Friday opening receptions.
