Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann & Michael B. Platt
In Common Ground, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann and Michael B. Platt have combined their disparate visual languages to create a common space. Both the process of creating the exhibition-a dialogue between a painter and a digital photographer-and the resulting finished pieces illustrate that common ground can serve as both a space and a mode of action.
This exhibition was first shown at Grace Teshima Gallery in Paris, France from September-October 2013, a project that was made possible by the Sister Cities International Arts Grant awarded to Honfleur Gallery by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Join Mann and Platt at the gallery on Saturday, February 1 at 2:45pm for an artist talk.
Laila Abdul-Hadi Jadallah
Adrift presents landscapes of Morocco and Turkey created by photographer Laila Abdul-Hadi Jadallah through in-camera multiple exposures she made during her travels through those countries. Influenced by her status as a Palestinian American, this series reflects her constant reconsideration as to what constitutes home by photographing the places she has cultural or tangible connections to in a non-static way.
Join Jadallah at the gallery on Saturday, February 1 at 2pm for an artist talk.
Both galleries are located at 1241 Good Hope Road, SE.
