Stephanie Garon’s Breaking Ground
Breaking Ground explores humanity’s connection to nature. Using a gallery-wide immersive installation of loblolly pine needles, Garon’s environmental artworks emphasize the fragility of nature through ecologically motivated interventions. Whether the viewer navigates their movements through the installation or reflects on the sculptural decomposition of natural materials, the contemplative space explores how we, as people, engage the natural world around us. Her environmental artwork has been exhibited internationally in London, Columbia, and South Korea, as well as across the United States. Breaking Ground opens on April 9th 2021 and closes on May 22, 2021.

Down In My Soul: Ancestors, Rituals, and Contemporary Practice
Down In My Soul: Ancestors, Rituals, and Contemporary Practice, a group show from the Washington DC-based duo Asha Elana Casey and Lionel Frazier White, explores the multilayered history of Black spirituality. Both expand notions of kinship by referencing personal experiences and research of diasporic religious and family traditions. In conversation with writer and curator Maleke Glee, the two discuss this body of work as part of the evolution of their artistic practice.

This concert is funded by the NEA.
From DCist: “Extraordinary”- “Janel & Anthony are a cello and guitar duo that have added fantastic touches to anyone with whom they’ve collaborated but are a special brand of mesmerizing when they play their own songs. Too off-center to be either classical, folk or jazz compositions, Janel & Anthony’s experimentalism is a must-see event.”
