Art of Adams Morgan: What’s Next at The Sliva Gallery
Autumn marks a welcome season of change. Outside, the trees transform from green to a fiery palette of reds, oranges and yellows. Inside The Silva, the palette is changing, too.
In September, we hosted the grand opening of The Silva Gallery x Latela Curatorial with Anne Marchand’s Moment’s of Grace, the first local art series to appear at our gallery, located in the heart of The Silva.
Marchand’s series draws inspiration from photographs of galaxies and nebulae seen through the Hubble telescope. The paintings elicit a connection between deep space and inner space of the human body, a design The Washington Post describes as “sort of a free jazz.”
Once Marchand’s exhibition closes, Latela Curatorial will transform the space again – this time for their second annual Women in the Arts program. Starting in early October, the exhibit aims to uplift work by woman-identifying artists working in and around the nation’s capital.
But canvases on the wall aren’t the only thing Latela Curatorial hopes to change with Women in the Arts. They want to give local women artists a platform to share their perspectives. “DC, Maryland, and Virginia artists are working in a deeply engaged local art world that is at the red-hot center of the United States’ political landscape,” the women-led organization stated, “and yet their voices are largely dismissed by the international art community and press.”
Women in the Arts aims to tear down these barriers for local woman-identifying artists with a curated 6-week program of intersectional exhibitions, receptions, artist-led programs, and dialogue.
The art gallery is located in The Silva’s reception area and will be open to the public on Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. More info here.
