No Boundaries brings together five of Washington DCís top artists, Rob
Barnard, Allen D. Carter, Michael Platt, Reid McIntyre, Tom Nakashima and
Hollywoodís Christian Le Blanc, an illustrator and actor who stars as Michael
Baldwin on the number one rated daytime drama The Young and the Restless. What
emerges is a exhibition that blends artistic styles and mediums to
illustrate that in the world of contemporary art there are No Boundaries.
Rob Barnard uses wood-fired pottery to express ideas about the struggle for
freedom of expression. Allen D. Carterís paintings offers insight into his
personal concerns -- homelessness, poverty and service to the needy. Michael
Platt's digital images are a unique rendering of the personal and the
social-political-historical. Reid McIntyreís ink and water color drawings
explores the dark side of the psyche, melding compelling images into unique
tableaus. Tom Nakashima blends collage, drawing and painting to create works
of art of heroic scale based on a personal iconography. Christian Le Blancís
whimsical, yet emotionally taut, drawings render musings on the 18th-century
life in New Orleans.
The exhibition, sponsored by Celadon, Inc., Anton Gallery, and Movie Music
Entertainment, begins on January 7 and runs through February 28. The Benefit
for Children's Hospital is on January 15 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Cast members
from The Young and the Restless will be present. Chef Gregory Hill will
present The Fusion Fire featuring a whole roast pig.
Donations will help fund the Childrenís Hospital New Horizons program at
Childrenís Hospital. New Horizons is an arts education and cultural
enrichment program at Childrenís National Medical Center. It was founded in
1978 as an outgrowth of the hospitalís concern for the total physical,
emotional and intellectual needs of its young patients.
Anton Gallery has been serving Washington for nineteen years.
