It takes a village to put an exhibition together

Work in progress. Putting together an exhibition requires mathematical precision and good attitude. We are always thankful for all the hard work and effort of many people involved in our projects. Thanks to them the final results are astounding! Color scheme, wall finishes, carpeting, window treatment, and exhibition display by Eisemann Design.

After hours of work, the final result is all worth that effort:

A conference room dedicated to women

Finally, I have some photos of my latest commercial project to share with you! I had the pleasure to work with the American Pharmacists Association in Washington DC on the Women in Pharmacy Conference Room. It is a special place at the APhA’s beautiful headquarters in downtown DC dedicated to the women who significantly contributed to the profession of pharmacy in the USA.

Floral motive on the glass partition and the family tree is inspired by the cherry blossoms native to the Washington mall located just outside of the APhA headquarters by the Lincoln Memorial.

I tried to be sensitive to the contemporary design of the building and its green principles – I selected materials that are environmentally friendly and mostly made in America.

The Bay of Color

Art in the window display of the Susan Calloway Gallery in Georgetown always makes me hit my brakes!

When driving down to M Street last night I saw an ocean or more precisely a bay of color: two stunning paintings by Stephen Day representing the colors of the Chesapeake Bay. It is so realistic yet abstract! – one would say about Day’s representations of color, mood and seasons of the Chesapeake area. And it is such a new and refreshing way of portraying the Bay. Interestingly… the show reminds me of the recent presentation of the Washington Color School at the Corcoran Gallery of Art – especially the paintings by Gene Davis. See my post below.


Colors of Washington DC

For those who love color and the city of Washington there is a rare treat – a show at the Corcoran Gallery of Art featuring artists associated with the Washington Color School. Among them Gene Davis and Thomas Downing who were both based in Washington, DC.

Washington Post art critic Paul Richard who spoke last week at the Corcoran said he could see some pastel yet vibrant colors of the cherry blossom festival in the paintings of Gene Davis and others from the Washington Colors School. He said their art was so unique to the DC area and so different from the paintings of their NY contemporaries from the abstract expressionist movement.

Well, I just loved to stare at those large scale paintings at the Corcoran. Some of them take up almost the entire wall of the exhibition hall. I could see that the individual colors were really defined by their interaction with the others.
