 OPENING:
 Love & Rage AriĆ© Mandelbaum  
 Unquiet Kingdom Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann 
 7-9 pm


 Love & Rage puts forth Mandelbaum's latest series of mixed media works on paper.  Produced during a six-week residency in Anacostia, the 13 large-scale artworks in the  downstairs show depict scenes the artist observed in the neighborhood during his stay and  were created with his signature medley of tempera and mixed media on paper or canvas.  Born in 1939 in Brussels to Polish-Jewish parents, Mandelbaum's  experiences during his  formative years as a young Jewish boy during WWII have heavily  influenced his life's  work. 
 Upstairs, Mann's Unquiet Kingdom crawls up and hangs from the ceilings. These new site-  specific installation paintings, in Sumi ink and acrylic on paper, mimic their own imagery of  contained chaos through their placement in the gallery. The artist's oeuvre is characterized  by complex scenes composed of tight patterns woven into and overtaking watery, loose  marks that suggest a cautious celebration of the excesses of our world--she describes her  work as "baroque abstract".
