Fantastic Day in DC

Went to DC today to catch the Anne Truitt show at the Hirschhorn before it closes tomorrow--it was great, I'm so glad I caught it in time! This would be the PERFECT show to take a color theory class to! Her sensitivity to color and form made for some really powerful pieces...

One of my favorites

This column in the center was INSANE to walk around and notice the differentiation between subtle values of color. One of my favorites in the show...


Also got to see the John Gerrard work featured on the 4th floor of the Hirschhorn. I have never seen any video work like it--truly fascinating and inventive. This was a highlight of the trip.

Also got over to the National Gallery's East Wing to see the Meyerhoff Collection on display in the mezzanine. What a collection they had--Ellsworth Kelly, Hans Hoffman, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Agnes Martin. Saw two great Frank Stella drawings and some smaller scale sculpture. There was also a Philip Guston show in the Tower which was nice to take in.

A great but FREEZING day in DC! We had a great time...
