Touchstone Gallery, since 1976

Founded in 1976, Touchstone Gallery was until recently located in a custom-built street-level space at 901 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC, but had to close due to Covid-19 pandemic. Touchstone Gallery is currently open online only. Since the beginning, Touchstone’s mission has remained unaltered: to enrich the lives of the community through diverse contemporary art exhibitions; to promote a rich variety of art talent in the DC region; to showcase national and international artists whenever possible; and to foster continuing artistic and career growth of its 50 member artists through encouragement and support.

    In a Public Place - Together/Alone by Rick Braswell

    10 Sep 2021 – 10 Oct 2021

    In a Public Place – Together/Alone is a collection of eleven street photos from Paris, New York and elsewhere. The photos capture people in the city – together in groups or alone with their thoughts. They catch the moments when people can seem to display the familiar yet unique and personal emotions of daily life – exuberance, loneliness, curiosity, preoccupation. The shots of two or more people (“Together”) provide more context and interaction, while those focused on individuals (“Alone”) are portraits that hint at their inner thoughts. All of the photos are Black & White, most are square with a wide, white border, my preferred format. These are digital photos and have been shown at the Paris Edgar Quinet Art Market and at Touchstone Gallery in DC.

    Fictional Friends by Rosemary Luckett

    10 Sep 2021 – 10 Oct 2021

    After moving from Virginia to Wilmington Delaware, my task was to settle into a different house and smaller studio. Unpacking seemed to take forever, so my cluttered “new” studio lay abandoned for a while. Finally, driven by pandemic quarantine, I pulled out a few collages already in progress and made myself stick to a 5 x 7 inch format until 20 faces materialized, each with its own characteristics and personality. These small “portrait” collages are made from paper and a variety of other materials. One downside of the process was that a ceiling leak dripped water directly on some of my working papers. The upside is that I decided to translate the images onto 8 x 10 inch canvases using acrylic paint. Working with small canvases reversed a long-time interest in much larger scale paintings exhibited in my recent 2018 Touchstone solo. Landscapes: The Terrain Within. https://www.touchstonegallery.com/rluckett-landscapestheterrainwithin Making each paper collage took three times longer to form than I expected. Making each painting also took at least three times longer than planned. But the joy of working with paint again outweighed time concerns. Some painted versions morphed into a completely different expressions from the collage counterpart. All are invented and diverse in nature. Many of them are whimsical. They became my friends during the pandemic when most venues in Wilmington were closed. I mentioned to a long-time friend, “I don’t know who these women are.” Without actually seeing them she suggested, “Maybe they are Everywoman.” So that is how I am seeing them for now. (It was her parting gift to me before she died. Thank you Margee Iddings.)
