Like Fine Wine
October 7, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - October 31, 2016 @ 5:00 PM
La Bodega is pleased to announce Like Fine Wine; a show celebrating the work of four established women artists living and working in the DMV.
Baltimore has an art scene pumping and flowing with millenial drive and passion, yet the lack of intergenerational showings in DIY spaces spurred the idea to invite professional artists to showcase their work during October’s All Over Street. La Bodega Gallery is honored to host the broad array of work by:
Laure Drogoul ’81
Genna Watson ’70
Laure Drogoul is an interdisciplinary artist, olfactory spelunker and cobbler of situations who lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

She has been living in Washington, DC for the past 18 years. Cheryl has exhibited in many shows in the Washington, DC, New York, Virginia, Maryland, Miami, Texas and Hong Kong.

She has shown numerous times at major galleries and museums including the Washington Project for the Arts, George Mason University, The Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Katzen Art Center. In addition, her work has been featured in many publications including Sculpture Magazine and Art in America. Edward Lucie-Smith included her in American Art Now first published by William Morrow and Company in 1985.
Through an additive-layered process, she develops works that calls attention to the complex, unknowable sides of the human condition. First through life size human figures and then with abstract imagery, the complexity of the human psyche has remained a consistent thread.
