Faith and Liberation through Abstraction
Exhibition Dates: January Saturday, 28 – Sunday, April 15
Anil Revri’s paintings function as aids to meditation, while at the same time the process of their creation is itself an act of meditation. They are beautiful, their craft is breathtaking, but their success depends on whether they further us, and the artist, along in the process of our own enlightenment.
Saturday, January 28 – Sunday, April 15
The sculptures and paintings of Cristóbal Gabarrón have been seen in hundreds of exhibitions around the world, but never in Washington, D.C. Here, his vibrantly colored sculptures are larger than life, yet human in scale and effect, his painted tondos evoke archaeological and zoological mysteries.
Regaining Our Faculties:
Zoë Charlton, Tim Doud, Deborah Kahn, and Luis Manuel Cravo Silva
Saturday, January 28 – Sunday, March 18
Recently returning from sabbaticals (sab·bat·i·cal adj any extended period of leave from one's customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training), American University faculty members Zoë Charlton, Tim Doud, Deborah Kahn, and Luis Manuel Cravo Silva used their time wisely.
Kids @ Katzen:

January 28 through February 28, 2012

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.
KATZEX_120128_047.JPG: Wall for Peace
This free-standing rectangular sculpture is a four-sided LED screen that displays English translations of scriptures related to peace fro six religions. Each horizontal band of moving type contains one selection from each of the six religions and scrolls across the entire surface of the unit ad infinitum.
Rays of light emanating from the unit projected onto the viewers as they walk around the work become a symbolic act of cleansing of religious and racial prejudice. Viewers who prefer non-violent and peaceful resolutions to conflict may tie silver ribbons on the lattice partition situated at the exit in a show of solidarity.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
