14thÂ Street regulars know Regina Miele. A longtime DC resident, she inhabited Raven Arts as a studio space and framing shop. This Tuesday, she showed off her new gallery, framing, and studio space just across the street at 1830 14th Street NW.
The space at Arts@1830 is clean and spare, white from floor to ceiling. A moving wall at the back of the gallery space can push forward towards the front, to allow for more framing space, or backwards towards the studio, for a bigger gallery.
And currently on display? Reginaâ€™s own work, many pieces of which are studies of the very corridor where the gallery is situated. But her favorites in the show are her newer pieces, charcoal drawings of views from the train between DC and New York City.
The gallery will have regular shows, about eight weeks running; the next one opens in January, featuring Al Wildey. Miele has great plans for the space, including a preview of emerging artists in Summer 2012. Meander in and see her new digs, and check out paintings of our neighborhood.
