In the galleries: Using heat to create several kinds of artworks

Artist Peter Kephart’s watercolor “Thermal Breakdown.” His technique involves scorching watercolor paper, creating jagged edges or voids. (Peter Kephart/Zenith Gallery )

By Mark Jenkins January 9
Peter Kephart has a singular technique, yet it yields several kinds of artworks. The West Virginia artist begins by roasting moistened cotton-rag paper over hot embers; he sometimes likes the results so much that he stops there. “Setting the World on Fire, One Painting at a Time,” at Zenith Gallery, includes several small works from the “Dominican Sunset” series that are merely charred. In other pieces, Kephart uses the scorched surface as the basis for elaborate paintings — often landscapes but occasionally abstractions.

ZENITH GALLERY: Established in 1978, Zenith is known for its eclectic collection of paintings, sculpture, neon, photographs, tapestries and 3-D mixed-media pieces. Sometimes home decor and jewelry is exhibited, too. Renown owner and arts commissioner Margery Goldberg seeks out "exceptional artists at varying stages of their careers," many of whom "are now well-known and established, while others are young bright lights on the horizon." In December, Zenith presents the work of "Firepainter" Peter Kepart, known for painting with fire. Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 13th, when there will be an on-site demonstration (fire-friendly weather permitting).Zenith Gallery is located at 1429 Iris Street NW.

THE WASHINGTON INFORMER
by D. Kevin McNair

You can tell a lot about a person based on the trinkets, trappings and furniture that they choose for their home. But one homeowner in Northwest decided to do something unique, combining conventional design with an eclectic array of fine art adorning every nook and cranny in order to transform her abode into a veritable gallery.

"Converting my home into an art gallery was actually based on the established tradition of patronism that became popular in places like Europe where artists and potential benefactors shared encounters in a person’s home in efforts to nurture the artist," said Margery Goldberg who opened her Zenith Gallery in 1978. "We look for exceptional artists at different stages of their careers and feature their work — some have been with us for 30 years and are well-known but others have just arrived on the scene," said Goldberg, 64, a successful sculptor in her own right.
