Artists Martha Jackson-Jarvis and Dalya Luttwak
GUESTS admired sculptures by Washington artists Martha Jackson-Jarvis and Dalya Luttwak at an opening reception for the exhibition “Sculpture on the Ground,” Thursday evening, September, 15 at The Kreeger Museum in Washington, D.C. Both of the artists talked about their art during the reception program.
THE SCULPTURES were recently installed by the artists in the Kreeger Sculpture Garden during this second invitational exhibition co-curated by Judy A. Greenberg and Vivienne Lassman.
EACH ARTIST responded to the natural setting with various interpretations, Dalya Luttwak with a site-specific installation – “When Nature Takes Over” – a sculpture of painted steel, roots and vines. And Martha Jackson-Jarvis with a piece that was originally conceived some years earlier – “Markings,” made of steel and concrete.
