<cal2>Paintings by Barbara French Pace and New Work by Gallery Artists

<bt>Waverly Street Gallery opens its fall season with landscapes by Chevy Chase artist Barbara French Pace. Aptly titled "Encounters," her exhibit showcases paintings that capture arresting moments in nature and rural life. Rugged rocks and sudden flashes of fall color play against the softer drama of windblown cypresses, tall grasses, and water reflections. Pace has studied painting locally and in Italy. She draws inspiration from extensive travels, including workshops overseas with artist colleagues. Her work can be seen regularly at Waverly Street Gallery.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 12 - 6 p.m.

Reception: Friday, Sept. 11, 6-9 p.m.

Meet the Artist: Saturday afternoons
