WPG member artist Margaret Adams Parker is one of the featured artists this month at the Arts Club of Washington with her exhibition “Artist & Mentors – Woodcuts, Etchings, and Sculpture.” This exhibition focuses on work Ms. Parker has created under the influence of her artistic “mentors,” Käthe Kollwitz and Rembrandt.
Ms. Parker’s work is most often figurative in nature and has religious and social justice themes, though she approaches landscapes and still lifes with the same technical skill and thoughtfulness of her figurative work. From figures in the Bible to people on the metro, from sweeping landscapes of Wales to quiet studies of shells, her prints and sculpture reflect her careful attention to both the physical and ideological the world around her.
This exhibition runs May 4-28, with an opening reception Friday, May 6, 6:30-9 pm. Bonus–if you visit you can see two other exhibiting artists, Joan Root and Cynthia Bickley-Green, in the other Arts Club of Washington Galleries.
