May Showcase: Painting With Joey P. Mánlapaz

In May, stop by to enjoy an exhibition by artists who study privately under Joey P. Mánlapaz, DC artist and Corcoran Professor of Art. The diverse group of seniors, who after long careers as attorneys, architects, and concert musicians, discover meaningful social connection through a mutual desire to pursue new challenges: how to paint in watercolor. It is commonly accepted that watercolor might be the hardest medium to learn. The works in this exhibition exemplify the artists’ conviction to master the technique using their own individual stylistic methods. This free show is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
