Gaela Erwin - artist talk
This past Monday, artist Gaela Erwin retuned to the Georgetown Art Department to give an artist talk discussing her paintings. A very large group of students was in attendance. (I guess it didn't hurt that it was a CEP.)
Gaela's work is part of a current show titled "Metamorphosis of Identity," also featuring the drawings of Nina Buxenbaum and digital images of Chris Twomey. She informed the crowded house about her techniques of painting from life (which is amazing when you consider her subject and subjects) and her interest in the self-portrait as portrayed through the depiction of saints and other individuals.
The show will continue to be on display in the Wilson Gallery through March 30 with hours M-F noon to 4:30 and Sundays 1:30 to 4.
If you would like to find out more about Gaela, here are some links to her work at Anne Tower's Gallery and through KET.
