Washington, DC – Formerly Was is pleased to present Liminal Space, an art exhibition featuring photographic installations by E. Brady Robinson, Elena Volkova, Jill Fannon, and Rodney Choice and collage work by Melvin Nesbitt Jr.  The five artists mark, record, and process a very “unfamiliar” year (2020) with pictures.

Please join us this Saturday, January 16, 2021, 11am – 5pm at the gallery for the opening of Liminal Space.  Artist E. Brady Robinson will be at the gallery from 1 – 3pm to meet with guests and answer any questions about her work.

In lieu of one opening reception, aka a big party, we will have multiple smaller openings in the form of a “Saturday with the Artist”. This first Saturday, we will be joined by E. Brady Robinson.

Due to Covid, we ask guests to make an appointment to meet the artist. Please call or email to make your appointment: 202.361.5223  formerlywas@gmail.com.

Please let us know if you will have family members or members of your “pod” accompanying you.

Walk-ins allowed between 11am – 5pm but we will limit guests inside the gallery to 3 “unrelated” individuals at a time.

We ask all guests to wear masks and sanitize before they walk in the door. Happy to answer any questions.

Brady describes her work as follows:

“2020” is a photographic installation that incorporates intimate moments and personal observations of the social landscape and natural world during the pandemic. I employ my camera as a diary, using the snapshot aesthetic of small format cameras.  During pandemic Baltimore, I share glimpses of my personal life combined with scenes of public spaces and empty streets. Photographic prints are grouped with intention creating a visual and emotional narrative via sequence and juxtaposition.

Formerly Was – once WAS gallery – is now located in Tenleytown, Washington, DC.

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday – Saturday
