New show opening at Nevin Kelly gallery

The Nevin Kelly Gallery at 14th and Irving has a new show coming soon: Bethesda artist Ellyn Weiss has a show called "Dark Matter" opening on Thursday the 17th and going until October 17. There's a reception the same day from 6 to 9 pm.

According to the gallery's website
The images resulting from her interaction with tar-as-medium have an eerily organic quality to them, appearing to the artist like living things “swimming up from the primeval darkness.” They register with us at the most basic level of all, as if triggering a memory we carry in our DNA of the moment life began.

"Tar-as-medium" sounds interesting. I visit a lot of galleries and haven't see tar used before.
