Six American Artists in Paris, France
Six Alex Gallery/Gallery A artists were invited at the prestigious Vieceli Galerie in Paris.
David Suter: New Painting and Sculpture
David Suter is a beloved local painter and sculptor who made his name as a graphic illustrator for The Washington Post, New York Times, and Time magazine. He grew up in DC, and recently returned home after passing a decade in New York.
In the works of art on display in November, Suter seeks forms that we all carry within our collective memory, from cozy fireplaces and ducks on ponds to Grim Reapers and an Every Man being chased, David Suter's work is representational and highly symbolic. Art critic Florie Gilbard explains, “He digs intently into his own psyche to unearth forms that have profound familiarity and meaning – shapes and structures derived from nature, our own bodies, and those of other beings.” Suter paints with acrylic, often composing frames out of found pieces of wood. His sculptures are made of wood, aluminum, glass, and steel. Approximately 15 of his paintings and 15 of his sculptures will be displayed.
More examples of his current work are here: www.alexgalleries.com/David_Suter.php
Swiss Style: Fashion & Jewelry Design
Award-winning apparel and accessories designed by 10 top graduates of the Geneva University of Art and Design
Washington, DC – From September 16 to October 14, the Alex Gallery in Dupont Circle presents “Swiss Style: Fashion & Jewelry Design,” a showcase of contemporary fashion and jewelry designs from the Geneva University of Art and Design / Haute école d’Art et de Design Genève, one of Switzerland’s most prestigious design centers. The Swiss search for quality has earned the country a solid reputation for perfectly functioning and fresh design.
Original fashions for men and women created by 10 top student designers will be displayed on two floors. The collection reflects diverse design talent, with items ranging from gowns to casual wear, footwear and jewelry. These inventions play with unique materials, illustrating techniques that mix know-how and new technologies. Many of the pieces were created for big name designers including the Martin Grant fashion house in Paris and the Brazilian shoe brand, Melissa. Outfits worn by the Swiss Pavilion guides of the World Expo Shanghai will also be on display. A projection will show the latest runway show of the Geneva University School of Art and Design, as well as varied student design creations.
This show is part of the Alex Gallery’s commitment to promote international works of art, made possible in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland.
DAVID GOSLIN: New Color Paintings
Unmistakably influenced by the Washington Color School, David Goslin’s vibrant pieces are distinguished for their technical qualities-- every line is straight, and every color has been carefully chosen. His most recent work also features stacks of horizontal. The viewer sees each hue as individual and full of character; creating an organic abstraction which represents a new direction.
Goslin’s signature sharp-edged lines can still be found in various works both horizontal and vertical. His work continues to pop, and his colors couldn't be more eye-pleasing. David Goslin: New Color Paintings is a wonderful display by an artist who continues to expand and evolve his repertoire.

Contemporary Artists from Lithuania
Exhibit at Alex Gallery & Gallery A
The â€śLithuanian Seasonâ€ť exhibition features works by prominent Lithuanian artists: painting, graphics, textiles, sculpture, and watercolors. This contemporary exhibit reflects a wide range of trends prevailing in Lithuanian art, and is the largest exhibit of its kind exhibited in the United States. The Alex Gallery shows renowned Lithuanian painter Vytautas Valius and internationally recognized textile artist Felixas Jakubauskas. Gallery A shows master graphic artists and other mediums. "Lithuania Season" is part of a well-established tradition of artistic exchanges.
Re-Introducing David Goslin
The raft of exhibits last year dedicated to the great Washington Color School of painting, re-energized local artist David Goslinâ€™s passion for color in all of its simplicity and splendor. The retro appeal of bright vertical bars and horizontal bands of colorâ€”gloriously un-peopled, minimally decoratedâ€”is made contemporary through subtle modifications. David Goslin first exhibited hard-edge abstraction in DC in 1982. His reintroduction to the Washington art scene provides new evidence for the vitality of our cityâ€™s greatest artistic school.
