Paula Cr awford Paintings

Boston Properties, Inc. and Jean Efron Art Consultants, LLC, are pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Paula Crawford in the

lobby of 505 9th Street, NW. This exhibition embodies a small cross-section of Paula Crawford's recent studio practice. Beginning with the

Order/Disorder series, Crawford sets out to create a perfect mathematical order of carefully constructed curved lines and then disrupts that

order with a large-brushed freehand gesture, where paint is allowed drip into its own natural formations. The two Disorder/Order works

contain the same set of repeated motifs as Order/Disorder but are painted in a single freehand gesture. Crawford approaches the line

between order and chaos without crossing it. "Where does order break down into random chaos?" Crawford asks, "Is there a between

place where we experience both simultaneously?" River Cells is the first work of a new series. In this painting, relationships between the

interior (microscopic) and exterior (macroscopic) natural world are considered. "It's interesting," Crawford remarks, " how stones below

the surface water in a riverbed seem to resemble cell walls or some other under-the-microscope world. I thought I'd try to paint that

connection."

There is no public reception for the exhibition.

Location: 505 9th Street, NW; West Lobby, Washington, DC 20004

Hours: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.

ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES, CALLS FOR PROPOSALS AND VOLUNTEERS

CALL FOR ENTRIE S: UNCOMMON BEAUTY

Presented by Ellipse Arts Center and the Wash ington Project for the Arts \C orcoran

In their second collaboration, The Ellipse Arts Center and The Washington Project for the Arts\Corcoran are proud to present Uncommon

Beauty. This exhibition of photo- and video-based works will be juried by Sarah Tanguy, from digital submissions, and will explore the

relative definition of feminine beauty. Sarah Tanguy is an independent curator and critic, and curator for the ART in Embassies Program. In

contrast to the standards of the media and the fashion world, exhibiting artists for Uncommon Beauty will stake out alternative

perspectives. While they are important topics, the overall focus of the exhibition is not our society’s obsession with diet fads, obesity, and

cosmetic intervention. Instead, the exhibition seeks to investigate the underpinnings of beauty and imperfection; how standards and

ideals become formed and perceived; and the dynamics of self-esteem, self-hate and acceptance. The intent is to offer something different,

unexpected, positive, or ambivalent; something that problematizes the notion of beauty without merely bashing it.
