To show our love for the art community, our fellow “Rare Birds,” we host a rotating three month art show that features local artists. We also hold two-week interim art shows that exhibit works from local schools and businesses. Each show is accompanied by an artist opening or closing, to give an opportunity for the community and artist to meet. Please check our events for more information.
If you would like to submit your art for consideration in one of our shows please fill out our artist submission form.

My drawings often flow from the right side of my brain while the left side is engaged in more analytical thought. They are truly extemporaneous -- usually starting without any specific structure or image in mind and developing into a collection of intertwined figures. Depending on the eye of the beholder, they may conjure up images of whimsical creatures of apparent aquatic, terrestrial, or alien origin, which may show expression through their eyes and how they interact with one another. My goal is to create pieces that are fundamentally simple yet have an element of complexity that lends itself to multiple interpretations, inviting the viewer to look again to find something new and different.
Show Dates: December 16, 2019 - March 15, 2020

Lia Ferro is an artist in the greater Washington DC area who works with exclusively repurposed and used materials in order to create more environmentally responsible art. These works revolve around sourced materials that already exist on the planet without the contribution to new production. Discarded materials or donated materials often go untouched or sent to landfill. Lia’s creative process involves finding materials and creating her own inspiration from what can be found at a given time and working within the limitations of what is available. Lia explores gender and energy through movement of line and form in an abstract function. This series was created with the intersection of forgotten materials and unconscious gender roles in mind. These are forms that are employed on a daily basis but the power of which are often overlooked.
