Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery proudly presents APPARITIONS: An intimate and significant group exhibition. Curated by Elise Wiarda, an integral member of Georgetown’s influential contemporary art space, Fendrick Gallery (1970-1983) and practitioner of Smith center of Healing and the Arts for over 17 years, returns to oversee this special show.
“For the exhibition, I selected works by artists who have been my friends for many years. The exhibition celebrates our lives, our work, and our friendship. The title APPARITIONS is a reference to the sense of mystery present in all the works in this show.”
Ms. Wiarda is celebrating 80 years on this earth, she has given more than she has received to both the arts and health community in and around the DC area and we are honored to showcase this exhibition of the DC area’s most influential and historical artists.
“Family, children, love and friendship, art and healing have been the main preoccupation of my life. A very good life. I am grateful.”
