LRA member Anita Bucsay Damron Exhibit at Torpedo Factory
“Transformations: Tapestries in Glass”
Exhibit dates: Wednesday, October 5–Sunday, November 6
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 13, 6:30–8:00 pm
Anita Bucsay Damron’s vibrant mosaics draw from many sources, both traditional and contemporary. Inspired by tapestries from Rajasthan and Gujarat, India, her pieces incorporate crystal from Austria and the Czech Republic, specialty glass from Murano, Italy, and found objects such as beads, brooches, and cameos. Damron notes that “new applications of mosaic art encourage recycling and reuse,” and her creative reuse of materials is what gives this ancient art form its exciting new sparkle.

The public is invited to a free opening reception for the exhibit “Impressions… letterpress, monotype, and etchings,” from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21 at the Barry Gallery at Marymount University. It will feature the work of Bridget Murphy, Marymount’s associate provost for academic affairs. In addition, an artist talk will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the gallery on Saturday, Oct. 22.
Murphy, who has also served as a professor in MU’s School of Arts and Sciences and the chair of the Graphic Design and Fine Arts Department, uses both traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques. The inspiration for her current work focuses on multiple topics: typographic design, her travels and her garden.
“I work with century old wood type, letterpresses, paper, and processes such as hand-inking to produce prints exhibiting the beauty of letterforms,” she said, adding that her recent travels have been to Skopelos, Greece, which are reflected in the mixed-media monotype prints. “Landscapes, streets, architecture, and found objects are central to these monotypes. By removing the everyday object from its normal place and using it in new situations, I hope you will see new and exciting forms.”
For the past decade, she has studied, grown and cultivated irises.
“You will see abstract forms in my iris etchings,” she said. “The flower images translate an emotion, fine details, and a moment in time to paper.”
The Barry Gallery, located in the Reinsch Library at Marymount, 2807 North Glebe Road, is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Admission is free.
The exhibit will run through Nov. 18 For more information, go to www.marymount.edu/

GFS Photographer Dean Souleles will share the secrets of taking high quality photographs of artwork suitable for making fine art giclee prints, submitting to print publications or for use on the Web. He will demonstrate simple lighting setups for 2D art to eliminate reflections and glare. For 3D art he will show how to subtly use light and shadow to bring out the three-dimensional qualities of a piece. He will also demonstrate a tabletop lighting setup suitable for very small pieces including jewelry. In all cases he will show you how to get the most accurate color reproduction. He will also provide equipment lists so that you can affordably put together your own home studio.
This talk is free and open to all members of GFS and the public.
