Checks & Balances at The Athenaeum Gallery


  • The Athenaeum Gallery 201 Prince Street Alexandria, VA 22314 United States (map)

This exhibition will feature collage works from the Checks & Balances series made with vintage and decorative paper on 1930’s English bank checks the artist found in an antique writing box.

The title for the series, Checks & Balances refers to not only the support upon which the collages are created, but also the checks and balances that our democratic society was built upon, which are now being put to the test. The series explores the anxieties of living in an age of incredible political and environmental uncertainty, and the need to escape through flights of fancy and humor.

Opening Reception: Sunday, March 3, 4:00-6:00PM

Gallery Hours:

Closed Monday - Wednesday

Open Thursday - Sunday: 12:00 – 4:00 PM
