Close to Home : Close to Trees

The American University Museum – Katzen Arts Center through August 14 is highlighting the work of an artist close to home, Sam Gilliam. His exhibition Close to Trees transforms 8,000 square feet of space into what curators have described as an open ‘colorful work of art.’ Gilliam himself, an internationally respected local artist and teacher has been blurring the lines of traditional paint on canvass, fabrics and sculpture since the 1960’s. Saturday April 30, Gilliam will participate in a gallery talk and walk-through at the Katzen at 4:00pm.
