Washington, D.C. - The Pepco Edison Place Gallery in celebration of Black History Month is hosting “From the Ashes: Rebirth of the Human Spirit.” This unique exhibit kicks off with a reception that is open to the public on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 5 to 8 p.m. The exhibit runs through March 4.
Each participating artist interprets and expresses their own feelings and thoughts about “rebirth” and “human spirit”. The theme challenges the artist to express him or herself using their own media to bring to life their vision of the power of the human spirit, from the march into danger to the danger itself, to falling and rising up again if only in spirit.
The exhibiting artists in “From The Ashes, Rebirth of the Human Spirit” include Akili Ron Anderson, Anne Bouie, Daniel T. Brooking, Adjoa Burrowes, Elsa Gebreyesus, Carolyn Goodridge, Claudia Aziza, Gibson-Hunter, Hubert Jackson, Wayson Jones, Michael Platt, Russell Simmons and Alec Simpson.
The Edison Place Gallery is located at 702 Eighth Street, NW between G and H streets, one block west of the Verizon Center, and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. with free admission.
