Artist Shanthi Chandrasekar: CHAKRA-ORANGE
Aggie Wolf Ballroom Gallery
Exhibition on view from March 26, 2015 — May 26, 2015
Shanthi Chandrasekar is a self-taught artist who studied physics and psychology. While many of her works are influenced by her Indian heritage, her true inspiration comes from the mystery and majesty of the world around her; her muse lives where the scientific overlaps with the spiritual. Shanthi’s works have been displayed in galleries and institutions throughout the Washington D.C. area. She has won numerous awards for her artwork including a recent grant from the Maryland State Arts Council in 2013 for Works on Paper.
Artist Margaret Huddy: WIND AT THE CAPITOL
Exhibition on view from February 28, 2015 — May 28, 2015
Exhibition theme: Washington and Beyond
Margaret Huddy’s luminous realistic watercolors capture the play of light on land and cityscapes. Painting a subject, such as the monumental buildings in Washington, DC or architectural monuments around the world in the varied light from dawn to dusk helps her study the effects of light. Years of experience working en plein air enable her to capture the quality of light she desires when back in the studio. Margaret Huddy is a signature, award winning member of the American and National Watercolor Societies as well as the Watercolor USA Honor Society.
