If you haven’t had a chance yet to see the two new exhibits at Civilian Art Projects by local photographer and Corcoran professor Frank DiPerna and New Orleans mixed-media artist Dan Tague, you’ve got another week to do so. Today is the perfect day to read my previous post here about both shows, visit the gallery AND hear Frank DiPerna discuss his work with writer/photographer Mark Power, who also happens to be a former Corcoran professor.
Since “Found Images” opened, the clamor from the DC artist community, about the importance of DiPerna’s work, as well as his influence of scores of photography students, has been impressive. DiPerna has the kind of reputation and respected stature that only comes from doing good work and sharing his talent and experiences with the world around him. He certainly has the credentials to back it up too including having studied with Garry Winogrand and Nathan Lyons, and work in several noteworthy collections including the the Library of Congress, The Smithsonian, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, amongst others.
So, get out of the house, get some brunch, and head on over!
Artist Talk is today, Saturday, October 13 at 4pm, 1019 7th St., NW, Second Floor. Exhibit runs through next Saturday, October, 20.
