At Glen Echo Popcorn Gallery
The Artists of Otis Street Arts Project

The Popcorn Gallery presents Rending...Rendering, a group exhibition featuring 10 artists from Otis Street Arts Project. To "rend" something is to tear it in half. Yet a "rendering" can be a gift, something returned. These seem like wildly different ideas, even opposites. But can a creation exist without some kind of destruction? Are ashes required to sprout?

In Rending... Rendering, the artists of Otis Street Arts Project explore the duality of construction and deconstruction in new work. They interpret this theme through visceral techniques—shredding, weaving, welding—and evocative materials, including pulp, plastic trash, and palm husks.

Artists: Chris Combs, Elizabeth Curren, Art Drauglis, Liz Lescault, Kirsty Little, Shelley Lowenstein, Ceci Cole Mcinturff, David Mordini, Lisa Rosenstein, Gloria Vasquez

The Self-Organizing Systems of Alberto Gaitán
April 1- May 6, 2023
Reception April 1st, 6-9PM
Alberto Gaitán was a composer, performer, and artist who studied how structures and networks can arise out of chaotic systems. He worked on solo projects and for over 30 years was a magnet for a thoughtful community of eccentric collaborators in the fields of art, science, and technology. Woven into the fabric of those collaborations were his wisdom, mischief, and generosity.
This exhibition showcases Gaitán's lifelong exploration of how humans cope with entropy using limited resources, imperfect memories, and unreliable tools.
