In The Gallery This Week

It is the end of the year and I'm just back from Puerto Rico, but we have an interesting group of work in the gallery this week. Stop by, or give me a call, I'm dog-sitting, but plan to be in the gallery as much as possible. Happy New Year!

Michelle Peterson Albandoz - Four New Panels

Michelle dropped of four new panels to the gallery earlier this week. Each panels measures 17.5"h x 17.5"w x 2"d. Patterned and modular, mix or match, the possibilities are endless. There is an optical quality to these pieces that not only brings to mind quilting, but also aspects of digital culture.

We have had a lot of fun placing Michelle's columns in various combinations. They are lightweight and stack in a variety of combinations.

Andersonville Arts Weekend - Opening Night, Friday, October 9,2015

Las Manos will be participating in the 13th annual Andersonville Arts Weekend, October 9,10 and 11. Please join us for an opening reception/party on Friday, October 9 to celebrate the kick off. All of Andersonville will be hosting artists throughout the weekend and Friday night is 'The Night of a Thousand Parties', where most business showcase an artist and put on a little party. At Las Manos Michelle promises a new series of recycled wood pieces, and maybe an installation. Brian Schutz continues his exploration of abstracted architectural models, now encompassing darker tones into his paper and frames. Michael is working on a series of 12 x 18 inch panels in black and white, and will do some crazy installation out of those. The gallery will look amazing and the back courtyard is still very green, perfect place for a cocktail. Scout, around the corner, is planning to have two very talented artists, and they always put on a good party, so there are two fun events to get your evening started.  Did I mention how many new restaurants have opened in the neighborhood this summer? Hope you can make it to Andersonville and Las Manos on Friday, October 9. See you at 7pm.

A Preview of Michelle's Upcoming Show at Longview Gallery

Michelle is deep in her studio preparing for her upcoming show at Longview Gallery in Washington DC. I was privileged to have a studio visit this morning and I would say she is in full work mode, and the new pieces look amazing. I discern at least three varying motifs that overlap, and yet each reflect new areas of thought and process. Cannot wait to see more.
