DC Lines Art Exhibition
This recently opened exhibition at the Amy Kaslow Gallery, located in the Spring Valley neighborhood of Northwest DC near American University, highlights the beauty of the line through paintings. Featuring three local artists – Elroy Williams, the late Andrew Kaslow and Linda Cafritz – the exhibition highlights works of art “inevitably, alluring and linear”, according to the website. Contemporary Williams paintings bring vivid color combinations and crisp, bold lines while Kaslow’s pieces feature organic patterns and tones with darker colors and Cafritz’s art is distinctly abstract with color and texture. delicate.
