Black Artists of D.C. showcase work at Brentwood Art Exchange

DC Show

“I am very excited for this exhibit,” said Washington, D.C. resident Gloria Kirk. “It will be a feast for my eyes, a pleasure for my heart and a lesson for my brain.”

Kirk has been a member of The Black Artists of D.C. for the last 12 years. Her artwork, along with the work of 16 of her fellow group members, will be on display starting Monday at the Brentwood Art Exchange. The art is part of an exhibit entitled “Show Me What You’re Working With.”

The Black Artists of D.C. was founded in 1999 and its members include artists, educators and collectors among others. The group aims to enliven the arts in the District by encouraging each other to try new mediums, methods and techniques.

“It’s been invaluable in my growth and development as an artist,” Kirk said. “[Members] have ideas and suggestions ... It’s always a very positive constructive critique so you don’t get your ego bruised which is important when you’re starting out.”
