With his new series of luminous D.C. paintings, artist Bradley Stevens shows us how familiar city scenes are rendered breathtaking and magical, bathed in light:

Of the myriad and obvious reasons D.C. is such a wonderful place to live––the vibrant artistic and cultural life, the monuments, the neighborhoods, the Potomac River and Rock Creek––the city’s unique quality of light is often overlooked. Rare among the world’s great capitals, D.C. isn’t dwarfed by monoliths blocking sunlight to the web of life below. We who live, work and play here can witness the ever-changing light show that plays upon the city’s architecture and surrounding landscape. It is this beautiful illumination of some of our city’s most treasured spots that I attempt to capture in these paintings.

 

Now celebrating 44 years in the nation’s capital, Zenith is recognized for its unique mix of contemporary art in a wide variety of media, style, and subject. The gallery provides high-quality acquisition, art consulting, commissioning, appraisal, and framing services, through its gallery/salon/ sculpture garden off 16th Street at 1429 Iris St NW, WDC 20012. Zenith also curates rotating exhibits at the Eleven Sculpture Space at 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, WDC 20004.
