Despite the chill outside, the walls of the coffeehouse will rollick with warmth and action through February and March as they are filled with Halcy Bohen's paintings and drawings of dancers, musicians, chefs, and food.
The show, called Eat, Play, Dance! displays Bohen's range of styles and media, including oil, ink, watercolor, and acrylics. Describing her work as "filled with lightness and movement, fluid lines and color," critics praise her use of "the slightest line and action to capture the subject, revealing the essence of the being itself."
Halcy's work has been juried into shows at the Smithsonian, the Yellow Barn Gallery and the Caladan Gallery. She has also exhibited locally at the American Painting Gallery, the Watergate Gallery, the Bethesda Library and the Starfish Cafe.
Her affinity for art is allied to her career as a psychologist, each role requiring both close observation and a creative response from her.
A reception with the artist will take place on Sunday, Feb 21st from 6-8 pm in the coffeehouse. Please note that there will be no wi-fi available and the furniture will be rearranged to accommodate the event.
She can be contacted at 202-364-0962 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
