About the Artists

Eve Stockton, Woodland Skyscape - Var. 7, Woodcut

Eve Stockton

Eve Stockton’s exhibition is inspired by a life-long love of being outdoors and observing nature. The show is comprised of original woodcut and solar prints. Images of woods, flowers and fields are rendered to suggest dualities, such as order/chaos, monumental/ microbial and representation/ abstraction.

Stockton has a multifaceted background having studied both architecture and fine arts at Princeton University (undergraduate) followed by a Masters in Architecture from Yale School of Architecture. Once a registered architect, she worked for Keyes, Condon, Florance & Associates in Washington, DC; Cesar Pelli & Associates in New Haven, CT and Davis Body & Associates in Manhattan.

Stockton is a full-time artist/printmaker with a focus on large-scale woodcut prints.  She prints with Susan Goldman of Lily Press, Rockville, MD and is represented nationally by several galleries (including Long View Gallery, Washington, DC).  Stockton’s artwork has been regularly featured on the cover of Nature Genetics Magazine. Her prints are in many museum, corporate, university, hospital and private collections. For more information, please visit:

This exhibition is curated by Patricia Quealy Moore.

Ric Garcia

Ric Garcia, a Cuban American artist, works and exhibits in the DC metro area. He is a painter and digital printmaker. His work builds on the traditions of pop art and is infused with references to various cultures in America. These references are a meditation about identity rather than a cultural primer. Garcia’s perennial favorite is Latino culture and it’s consumer branded products.

Garcia thinks of his depictions of these everyday products as still lives, commenting that “ultimately the work is less about representing the product and more about eliciting emotional reactions, introspective questions and celebrating Latino culture.” The cans and packages in his work are based on real products, but the slogans and illustrations on the labels are re-imagined in ways that express and comment on his bi-cultural experiences.

Garcia’s art is in many private and public collections. Most recently his work has been added to the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Art Bank collection and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Division of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s County, Maryland collection. Garcia is a visual designer for the Smithsonian and earned a BFA in graphic design and illustration from the University of Miami.

This exhibition is curated by Dr. Eric Denker.



Ruth Bird, Random Reach, Acrylic on Paper

Spilsbury Gallery

Featured Artist: Ruth Meixner-Bird

“This series of paintings is a document of my vision loss since my last show three years ago. The paintings begin with a soft focus ground, augmented with fragments of collage inspired shapes that unify my different ways of seeing. Of course many artists have experienced vision loss but do not lose the urge to create. It is a testimonial to the indomitable spirit of the artist.”
