In the galleries: Few hard edges in sight The Washington Post, Mark Jenkins, March 13, 2015
Sally Levie The title of Sally Levie’s show at Studio Gallery is “Oxygen,” but she doesn’t attempt to depict the colorless gas. Her subject is the O2-emitting tree, sometimes singular but often in lush profusion. The well-traveled D.C. artist works in various styles and media, devising impressionistic oils, precise charcoals and drippy acrylics. Among the show’s highlights are “Oak, Napa,” a black-and-white drawing, and “Night Forest — Denmark,” in which light shines from behind the dark trunks. The illumination may be natural or man-made, but whatever the source, its glimmering provides a mysterious radiance. Sally Levie: Oxygen On view through March 28 at Studio Gallery, 2108 R St. NW. 202-232-8734. www.studiogallerydc.com.
