Christopher Baer

Working between two studios in Washington D.C. and rural Virginia, contemporary artist Christopher Baer is known for his highly expressive, large-scale mixed-media paintings. His works offer the viewer a glimpse into their process, with previous layers and gestural brushstrokes visible beneath the surface.  Baer emphasizes the boundaries of the canvas by delineating a band along the edge of each painting; each consecutive layer of paint retreats further and further from the border, revealing earlier incarnations of the work.  His long-term series Palisades, named after the part of D.C. where he lives, is a joyful exploration of color, brushwork and line.

Tim Tate

Tim Tate is a Washington, DC native, and has been working with glass as a sculptural medium for the past 25 years. Co-Founder of the Washington Glass School, Tim’s work is in the permanent collections of a number of museums, including the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum, Renwick Gallery and the Mint Museum.
