Culture Coffee’s first art exhibit of the new year features Brightwood resident, John G Parker.  John is an active resident and prolific artist with a studio located on Kennedy Street.  “Simplicity in art is what I have always believed in, using the basic elements of art.  I start with a basic line and allow that line to flow freely…”  He has been drawing, painting and creating all his life. He obtained his formal fine arts training from the Corcoran College of Art in the early 1980’s.  He recently decided to devote his full attention and time to his art after working for many years in the food service industry and raising a family.
John has shown his works in the Watergate Hotel, the Corcoran College of Art, and the Blackburn Center at Howard University and a host of other galleries in the metropolitan area.  He was one of three artists selected to design and produce the Christmas tree ornaments for the White House Christmas tree during President Jimmy Carter’s administration.  His unique style of painting has always stood out in a crowd and his latest series of paintings titled “Dances with Line” exemplifies his talent to make the mundane exciting, stimulating and full of energy.  The opening reception starts at 6 pm on Friday January 9th, 2015.
