Long View Gallery at 1234 9th Street NW

  • Michelle Peterson-Albandoz runs through May 6.
  • Overview: “To be exact, chaotic materials that people just discard. Most of us don’t even see these objects that become cohesive panels inspired by nature. We just see faded 2 by 4′s in a pile by the empty lot, or an eye sore. Michelle takes a different view. The more beaten and abused the wood, the better it translates alongside other pieces. The weathering of the squares and strips that make up her art panels create a certain flow, a natural and architectural one.” (Long View Gallery)

Transformer Gallery at 1404 P Street NW

  • Alptraum runs through April 24.
  • Overview: “It is an artist led project. It is a model which utilizes global communication between localized artist hubs & clusters to form an international grouping with the intent of opening dialogue across borders and cultures in order to delve into the stuff and mind murk that is either collectively shared or completely random and unrelated, all within the syndrome of ‘The Nightmare’. Each artist draws on their own personal experience in order to visualize anxieties that take them beyond everyday dreams.” (Transformer)
