Artist's Corner

“D.C. Tidbits,” Joey Manlapaz

Joey P. Manlapaz, BA ’77, MFA ’80, was one of 10 artists invited by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities to work with printer David Adamson to create innovative digital prints in his atelier. Her collection, “D.C. Portfolio 2004,” was shown in July at the Adamson Gallery in Washington.

The Rentz Gallery in Richmond, Va., will feature the work of Sherry Zvares Sanabria, BA ’59, in a one-person exhibition Oct. 14 through Nov. 29. Many of her paintings explore deteriorating schools, churches, and cabins in Virginia. “One can feel the presence of those who prayed, studied, and lived in these buildings. Sometimes, one can see in the peeling, aging walls shapes suggestive of human form,” Sanabria says. The artist lives in Leesburg, Va.

“Al Marin with his Dill and Glads,” Charlotte Whitney Stevens

Charlotte Whitney Stevens, BA ’45, MFA ’46, was the July featured artist at the Milbridge Historical Museum in Milbridge, Maine. Her work, which consists of watercolors, oil crayon, and colored pencil drawings, features landscapes completed during her last three summers in Maine, was shown through August. Stevens has shown work in about 75 shows across the United States, in her own gallery, and in cooperative galleries. She received training at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan as well as at GW. She resides in Michigan and spends many summers in Maine.

“Tidepools,” an exhibit by Cynthia Young, MFA ’78, will be on display at the Touchstone Gallery in Washington from Oct. 6 through Nov. 7. Young is a member artist of the gallery. The abstract paintings were inspired by years of observing the plant life beneath small pools of water and the surrounding rocks and sand. Young spent time in California and the Caribbean studying nature, and says the works are memories and impressions rather than realistic transpositions. She is a resident of McLean, Va.
