Primbondh/ January 28, 2023/ the 7 arts

1. What’s one thing you made this year?

Aaron Dessner, musician and producer

Right as the quarantine started, I started writing so much music, and I had no idea what it was. There was no horizon line, there was a lot of uncertainty — so I just made a lot of music that I didn’t know what it was for. And that’s when Taylor Swift approached me.

Tig Notaro, comedian

I made two podcasts. I’m considering a third. And I somehow ended up being green-screened into a zombie action film where I’m a helicopter pilot. I didn’t see that coming. It was kind of like when I was doing “Star Trek” and I was like, “Really? Me?” And then oddly when I was in my “Star Trek” suit it was like, “Oh I guess it doesn’t seem so weird.

Number 7 Arts Gallery welcomes new artist | Arts

Primbondh/ January 24, 2023/ the 7 arts

Number 7 Arts Gallery welcomes Laurie Davis as its newest member artist. Davis is a watercolor artist and builds found-object assemblages from small, vintage boxes. She and her husband relocated to Brevard from Texas last year. “Laurie has an impressive background and we are excited to have her as a new member of the gallery” says Jack Christfield, chairman of the gallery’s jury committee.

 “The main focus of my work is fresh colorful watercolors with pattern and design elements,” Davis said. “Sometimes I’ll do primary style houses in a quilt pattern that are reminiscent of the arts and crafts of simpler times. I also love the splashy style of a large sunflower that wakes up a room. Now that we are in Brevard, the ideas for watercolors are overflowing and I can’t wait to get in the studio every morning. The ideas are keeping me up at night! My paintbox

Where to see art gallery shows in the Washington region

Primbondh/ January 21, 2023/ the 7 arts


There’s a lot of portraiture, actual or symbolic, in “The Ties That Bind,” presented by the Millennium Art Salon at IA&A at Hillyer. The 14-artist exhibition is an overview of “the Black experience throughout the Diaspora,” according to the gallery. Among the highlights are Lisa Brown’s suite of mother-daughter photos; Chelsea Odofu’s split-screen video of African-style dance; and Liz Miller’s sculptures of braided hair, including two massive standing combs enveloped in woven tresses. The show’s standout, however, is a nonrepresentational piece.

Wesley Clark’s “God Speak” covers the side of one room with more than 100 wooden wedges, each painted like a miniature abstract-expressionist canvas. Arranged tidily in groupings of various numbers, and separated by disparate expanses of white wall, the triangular blocks stretch approximately 7 feet high and 14 feet wide. The effect is imposing, but also funky.
