doris-mae Art Gallery, a curatorial project by Thomas Drymon, is now open at 1716 14th Street NW. In the space formerly occupied harmon art lab, doris-mae will include six exhibitions through May 2013 with painting, photography, installation and video by artists from the DC area.

This weekend, doris-mae will host its inaugural exhibition featuring the work of four painters (Pat Goslee, Becca Kallem, Paul Pietsch and William Whitaker) and a video project by Will Copps. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, September 15 from 6 until 9 pm, and the show runs through October 14, 2012.

During the exhibition season, doris-mae will also host two series of discussions, including an ongoing series of conversations called “The 21st Century Artist.”

If you’re looking for something a little more unconventional, then perhaps the gallery’s impromptu series, “Ask A Caged Artist Anything,” is for you. During these impromptu events, doris-mae will install two local artists in a cage on the front of the building and then allow the public to engage the artists about their practice, politics, art and life. Apparently, no questions are off-limits!
