Luminous, Playful Paintings of Westover
On exhibit at the Westover Branch Library, October – November 2014
Public reception Saturday, Nov. 22, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Rick Black can be spotted taking photographs in and around Arlington and Falls Church, Virginia and Washington, DC.
He selects the best of his digital images and turns them into artistic paintings – luminous, colorful, and playful. Westover will show 13 of Mr. Black’s works, including several specifically related to the Village, including Ayers, Lebanese Taverna, Lost Dog, Stray Cat, Welcome to Westover, and Westover Beer Garden.
Mr. Black is a poet, book artist, and photographer, and the founder and owner of Turtle Light Press (turtlelightpress.com). For nearly 20 years, he has worked as a journalist, including a three year stint in the Jerusalem bureau of The New York Times. He also freelanced for numerous national newspapers and magazines, including The LA Times and The Boston Globe. His work is featured in the guest rooms of the Falls Church Hilton Garden Inn as well as in fine galleries and gift stores in Virginia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
