CMDupré Artist Talk Wednesday, August 25

CM Dupré will talk about her work and painting technique on Wednesday, August 25 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm at The Art League's Gallery at National Harbor. This talk is free and open to all!

The Alice exhibit is our closing exhibit at our current National Harbor space. Announcements of our new home at National Harbor are coming soon.

Who else has continued to lead such an eventful and fascinating existence as Alice? Compared to saints, heroes, screen stars, musicians and artists, intellectuals, inventors, politicians, she’s given us more: in elaborate chains of circumstance, indelible processes of redefinition, psychological growth and exorbitance. Her strengths arose from curiosity and imagination. There is no doubt that Alice IS—and more—she is transformation.

In CMDupré's Alice series' (both the first and second series of paintings are featured in her current Alice exhibit) she deciphers Alice in her different stages of life, from childhood to adulthood. Fascinated by the character of "Alice" and who and what she represents, Dupré philosophically, psychoanalytically, and sociologically explores Alice's curiosity and imagination, her iconography, her ability to transform and inspire, and her pervasive existence. “Alice” is in all of us, or is she?

The Art League at National Harbor is located at 120 American Way, Oxon Hill, MD 20745.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Friday, 12:00 noon - 7:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 noon - 6:00 pm.
