'Work', Tom Wolff in Retrospect

'Ass Against the Wall', an installation by Martha Jackson Jarvis

Ass Against the Wall explores points of resistance, endurance, and markings that pattern our lives. It is a compelling place of power where forces change, heaviness, strain, anxiety, burdens and the weight of difficulty into something else.
In a chance encounter in the mountains of Tajikistan Jarvis discovered an incredible being in a moment of clarity that bridges the void between animate and inanimate form. A moment when plants, animals, and minerals are one, even the rocks conspire to a fluid and connected greatness.
Martha Jackson Jarvis’ sculptures have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad, including the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; the Studio Museum of Harlem, N.Y. Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island, N.Y.; Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, N.C.; Anacostia Museum in Washington, D.C. and the Tretyakov Gallery Moscow, U.S.S.R. Her numerous awards include a Creative Capital Grant, Virginia Groot Fellowship, and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, The Penny McCall Foundation Grant , and Lila Wallace Arts International Travel Grant.
$5 suggested donation but any support is appreciated. Proceeds go towards supporting our local artist series and future events.

Exhibitions developed and coordinated by International Arts & Artists, Washington D.C.
