Wondimu questions the distinct classifications of peopleas "Black" or "White" which describes an opposition that does not actually exist in nature.In creating his works Wondimu uses a palette of 3,000 different colors he has collectedfrom skin-color swatches representing the multi-coloredness of individuals and people.</p><p>Going beyond the physical attributes of SKIN, Wonidmu's work is also about the conflictbetween the eye and the perceiving mind over the color of human skin. The eye sees itsworld without bias; however, the mind takes that information from the eye andtranslates it into social, political and religious master signifiers in order to furtheragendas, particularly subjugation of the Other. Wondimu's work describes and exposesthis conflict as it exists in both the micro and macro levels.</p><p>Alison Sigethy: Sanctuary</p><p>(September 2-30)</p><p>Commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Alison Sigethy's Sanctuary attempts to</p><p>bring the viewer closer to achieving inner peace by taking them on a journey inside the</p><p>human body. Sigethy's belief in the power of the inner self, a place where one can truly</p></li><li><p>8/4/2019 bMichael Events This Week 2 September 2011</p><p> 3/65</p><p>find peace, healing and forgiveness, has been the foundation in creating this work.</p><p>In Sanctuary, the body is represented by two multi-piece sculptures,each portraying a</p><p>different internal system. Breath, six large glass panels with undulating fabric and</p><p>shadows, represents the respiratory system. Life, four bubble tubes filled with intricate</p><p>glass components, represents the cardiovascular system. Both sculptures incorporate</p><p>sound and movement as an essential part of the experience.</p><p>International Arts &amp; Artists</p><p>9 Hillyer Court NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20008</p><p>(202) 338-0680</p><p>Gallery Hours:</p><p>Monday,12:00-5:00 p.m.</p><p>Tuesday-Friday, 12:00-6:00 p.m.</p><p>Saturday, 12:00-5:00 p.m.</p><p>Otherwise by appointment</p><p>International Arts &amp; Artists (IA&amp;A) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts</p><p>internationally.

Inspired by a three-year stay in Istanbul/Turkey, the artist</p><p>starts her paintings with a wide mix of colors and materials, supported by a wild varietyof brushes, old toothbrushes, and weathered vegetable or wallpaper brushes--every</p><p>brush is welcome. Torn pieces of discarded drawings or neglected studies, street finds,</p><p>and newspaper rip-outs enjoy getting a second chance on life. Taking the lead, charcoal,</p><p>graphite and oil bars find their way onto the canvas, stirring up an unruly mix of form</p><p>and color, taking the artist on a unique journey, which thrives on a dynamic jumble of</p><p>color and form. The result opens a window in how the artist interprets her mix of what</p><p>is obvious to the eye as well as to what is easily passed by and overlooked.</p><p>Buy art and benefit people in need.

Her clear, warm alto voice gets directly at the heart of</p><p>the words with little embellishment, but a great deal of</p><p>sincerity and subtlety. The Austrian vocalist studied classical</p><p>music and jazz at the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz and</p><p>finished her studies with a masters degree in music andEnglish language and literature at the Mozarteum University</p><p>Salzburg. In a career that has taken her from the slopes of</p><p>the Austrian alps, where she sang folk songs as a young girl,</p><p>to jazz clubs, concert halls and the stages of international jazz</p><p>festivals, vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger has proven herself to be</p><p>a powerful and elusive talent.</p><p>In 1994, Lohninger relocated to New York and has released</p><p>seven albums since then.
