Lisa Egeli and Rose Weinstock at Arts Club of Washington


Solo exhibitions for two artists selected by Eliza Rathbone, Curator, The Phillips Collection, will run from March 2-31, 2001 at the Arts Club of Washington. The public is invited to an attend an opening reception on Friday, March 2, from 6:30-8:30 pm for Lisa Egeli's recent landscapes, "Places Known and Unknown" in the first floor Monroe Gallery, and Rose Weinstock, whose theme and variations, "Mini Windows" can be seen in the upstairs McFeely Gallery.

Egeli, a member of a prominent family of Maryland artists, began her career as an illustrator, but soon earned a reputation as a portraitist and painter of large-scale landscapes. Firmly ensconced in the celebrated tradition of American Luminism, these depictions of sublime natural settings suggest both a hard-edged, crystalline reality and otherworldly visions. Titles such as "End of Summer" and "Almost Alone" underscore the elegiac poetry inherent in reflective surfaces of water and sky. Ms. Egeli, who has exhibited extensively in Washington and Maryland, has been the recipient of numerous commissions. Her works can be seen in both public and private collections nationwide.

It is the window, even more important than the world beyond its confines, which is Rose Weinstock's vehicle for the evocation of interior and exterior states. Redefining subject matter that has entranced artists from Vermeer to Bonnard, Weinstock's nuances of mood are conveyed through formal elements including cropping and enigmatic spatial construction, as well as the interplay of chiaroscuro, light and color. Paintings by this award winning New York based artist, whose career spans over 15 years, have been exhibited throughout the world. Larry Rivers, Techpartners International and the Bloomfield Cultural Center are included in the list of patrons and collections that have acquired her work.
