Art Exhibit: Color-Full

Exhibit: June 6 - Aug 3, Mondays thru Fridays, 8:30am - 5pm

Public Reception for the Artist, Thursday, June 13, 7-9pm

Charles Reiher’s focus is on color and movement. He often liquefies and pours the acrylic, which helps to create movement and allows nature to participate in the painting process by deciding where the paints will flow and how they will mix together. Many of the pieces incorporate gesso, molding paste and sand to give a three dimensional feel to the paintings. Most of his paintings are so full of color and movement that they seem to embody the hectic, 24-7 connectivity of the 21st century while providing a sense of pleasantness and hope that we can survive and even enjoy the frenetic pace at which we live.

Ursula Miller is a DC-based artist and graphic designer who studied painting and darkroom photography at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in New Jersey. While her background is in the slower processes of analog, hand-held media, where the object is precious, her current work explores the relationship that the ease of capture and surplus of imagery in today’s culture creates. The projects in Same, but Different explore the space between repetition and uniqueness, represented in the volume of discrete, similar things, and in particular, shared experiences experienced separately.

To usher in the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, “Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence” reveals the women and organizations often overlooked in the complex narrative of women’s suffrage in the United States. Through portraiture, biography, and material culture, the exhibition examines the contributions of the radical women in antislavery societies; women activists of the late nineteenth century; the “New Woman” of the turn of the century; and the militant suffragists of the 1910s. This presentation also highlights the struggles that minority women endured long after the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. The exhibition is curated by Kate Clarke Lemay, historian and director of Portal, Portrait Gallery’s Scholarly Center, National Portrait Gallery.

Exhibit: May 3, 2019 - Mar 29, 2020; Daily 11:30am-7pm, Admission: free

Photographs are often replete with words that remain unheard. “In Mid-Sentence” presents a selection of photographs from the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s collection that depict moments of communication: intimate confessions, public speeches, exchanged jokes, political confrontations, lectures and more. Photographs featured in this exhibition encapsulate pivotal moments, such as John F. Kennedy’s televised speech for the 1960 Democratic National Convention or Walter Cronkite’s clandestine 1971 meeting with Daniel Ellsberg at the time of the publication of the “Pentagon Papers.” The exhibition provides the missing script for these otherwise silent voices, granting another means for understanding these interactions by placing them within their socio-historical contexts. An illustrated brochure accompanies the exhibition, and several of the represented speeches are included in an interactive kiosk. The exhibition is curated by Leslie Ureña, associate curator of photographs, National Portrait Gallery.

Molotov

Molotov es una banda de rock alternativo formada el 23 de septiembre de 1995 en Mexico D.F. Las letras de sus canciones se caracterizan por el manejo del albur (o doble sentido) y del "Humor lacra" como ellos mismos le dicen, mezclando la satira con el humor personal de cada uno de los integrantes. Por lo general sus letras hablan sobre criticas al gobierno (no solamente mexicano), sin embargo estas tambien hablan sobre mujeres y fiestas. En cuanto al sonido, cada uno de los integrantes posee influencias diferentes y esto les permite fusionar diferentes generos desde el rock y el rap hasta el funk o la cumbia, ademas este varia dependiendo del disco al que se le refiera, el cual siempre ha estado compuesto por dos bajos, lo cual hace que tenga un sonido explosivo segun los propios miembros de la banda y de ahi el nombre de esta.

The playful smile, the unassuming demeanor, the beard and the cap and the spectacles might lull you into forgetting that you’re in the presence of an awesome musical talent, Jamaica’s greatest practicing singer/songwriter. Beres remains cool, though he knows that he’s one of a handful of people responsible for maintaining a mighty legacy of soulful reggae music—a select group of artists like Toots and Gregory, like Dennis and Bob. “Father bless me with a song,” he pleads on the last cut of his latest album, Music Is Life, “to make the whole world sing along. Regardless of the race, regardless of the taste.” In the year 2001, the blessings just keep coming, and the world is just starting to catch on

Y La Bamba has been many things, but at the heart of it is singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza’s inquisitive sense of self. Their fifth record, Mujeres, carries on the Portland-based band’s affinity for spiritual contemplation, but goes a step further in telling a story with a full emotional spectrum. Coming off Ojos Del Sol, one of NPR’s Top 50 Albums of 2016, Mujeres exhibits the scope of Mendoza’s artistic voice like never before. “Soy como soy,” Mendoza says, and that declaration is the bold— even political— statement that positions Mujeres to be Y La Bamba’s most unbridled offering yet.

Since releasing his first solo album in 1994, he has set the standard for quality modern roots music. Throughout his career, Vaughan has earned the esteem of his legendary guitar-playing heroes and superstar peers along with successive generations of young players. His musical ethos and personal style have had an impact on contemporary culture, from spearheading the current blues revival with The Fabulous Thunderbirds to his longtime, innate fashion sense of slicked-back hair and sharp vintage threads (now seen throughout the pages of contemporary fashion journals) to becoming a premier designer of classic custom cars. But for Jimmie Vaughan, none of it is part of a crusade or a career plan. It's just his natural way of living his life and pursuing the interests that have captivated Vaughan since his youth.
