"New Beginnings is an exhibition featuring D.C. and Virginia based artists who have embarked on projects that break new ground within their own particular working methods or attempts to alter their trajectory as artists. Deborah Carroll Anzinger, Reuben Breslar, Treva Elwood, M. Gert Barkovic  and Jenny Walton will all exhibit new work that they hope will lead them to a new beginnings within their practices. Some shifts are conceptual, others material, but each work is a conscious attempt to change course, either out of necessity or shear curiosity." –Lisa McCarty
The Gallery in Founders Hall is intended to engage the arts, the artists and the diverse audience of professional students, graduate level faculty and professional society in an exchange of ideas and practice.
