GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD PLACES, a small show of my paintings, is on view at Glen Echo Park’s Park View Gallery, from January 20 to February 17, 2018. The paintings are inspired by men and women who have left a positive mark on our region and our country, and the places that honor them.
The show is a tribute to courageous citizens–those whose protests led to the racial desegregation of Glen Echo Park in the early 1960s; Clara Barton, the founder of the Red Cross; the nature-lovers who preserved the C&O Canal; Frederick Douglass; Abraham Lincoln; and Martin Luther King, Jr. It takes energy, vision, and great risk to change society for the better. We’re lucky in the Washington region to have many physical places to honor such activism.
