Rosslyn on front lines of contemporary art

Rosslyn continues to draw itself onto the front lines of contemporary art with Jassie Rios and Renee van der Stelt's collaborative installation, Drawing the Found Line, now showing in Artisphere's WIP Gallery.  Rios and van der Stelt's work uses sound and movement to inspire conceptually drawing lines.  Their work subtly retraces the roar and rush of the orange and blue lines pulling into Rosslyn.

Just like Beyond the Parking Lot, this exhibit plays well with Pattee Hipschen's Rural Beauty, A Visual Diary of the American Landscape, now showing in Artisphere's Mezz Gallery.  Across the Mezz Gallery's long wall, Hipschen's paintings are arranged with a pulsating rhythm.  Groups of small paintings oscillate with larger works in the line of the wall.  Walk the Mezz Gallery looking at the arrangement of the paintings to appreciate this brilliant level of Hipschen's exhibit.
