With all the galleries sprouting up along H Street NE, the neighborhood may be on its way to becoming Washington’s next big arts district, and another addition this weekend will certainly help the area’s credibility. G Fine Art, formerly housed along 14th Street, is taking up residence in the up-and-coming neighborhood.
The gallery celebrates its move to Northeast Washington on Saturday with a new exhibition and an opening reception. The work of A.B. Miner goes on display in “Naked,” a show that strips down in more ways than one. In one diptych, Miner pulls back the curtain on his creative process, while a massive 12-panel painting shows a year in the life of a post-surgery expanse of skin from a landscape of stitches to a healed, though scarred, chest. Meanwhile the video piece “Fly 08” — a riff on Yoko Ono’s “Fly” — features the interaction between an insect and a reclining nude figure.
