Inversion/ Submersion: Public Reception and Artist Talk

February 19 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

CHAW presents an artist talk and reception to celebrate the artwork and process of gallery resident artist Billy Friebele.

Join us as we dive deep into uncovering the artistic process behind Inversion/ Submersion. Over the course of his artist residency at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), Billy explores the Anacostia River from shallow waters near his home in Riverdale Park, MD to deeper areas near Capitol Hill. Using two floating video cameras, Billy captures footage above and below the water surface simultaneously while floating downstream to be on display in the gallery, along with physical artworks created based on what he encounters on this journey. Billy’s exhibit seeks to explore the question, what can we learn from the non-human creatures that we co-habitat with? Through this artist residency, Billy hopes to foster a communal exploration of the connections between humans and the natural world in our local watershed.

The Reception and Artist will be held at CHAW on Saturday February 19th from 5:30-7:30 pm.
