Dana Ellyn is a pretty incredible DC artist and is having a show of some of her paintings opening on Saturday. Her work is unique, expressive and shows an interesting twist on some pretty touchy subjects. I got this information from an email she sent (not that I know her personally – I’m on a “big fan of Dana Ellyn” email list):
In my solo show, “I Call Shenanigans”, I am exhibiting approximately 70 paintings which tackle the subjects of religion, politics, family and a few other touchy issues. Included in the show is my new “Star Spangled Banner” series for which I created 15 paintings – one for each stanza of the national anthem. Also on display are select pieces from the past four years of my “31 Days In July” series in anticipation of this July’s work.
The works will be shown at Long View Gallery at 1302 9th Street, NW (9th & N) and will be on display until the end of the month. Go check it out.
