Artist's Dinner

November 15, 2017 at 6:30PM

Monroe House

Teresa Oaxaca, whose paintings will occupy the Monroe and MacFeely galleries during the November exhibit, will explain her inspiration and methods at a dinner Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 pm. 

Oaxaca says of her work, “The design is both planned and subconscious. For this reason I surround myself with Victorian and Baroque costumes, bones and other things which I find fascinating - I want subject matter to always be at hand.” She adds, “Since returning to the Washington, D.C. area, I have been focusing on creating a new and large body of work. My new series have taken me away from academic studies to more elaborate compositions which combine human and still-life elements.” 

Oaxaca is a full time painter whose works can be seen in collections and galleries throughout the U.S. and internationally, including the former Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Portrait Society of America and the Museu Europeu D’Art Modern in Barcelona. She teaches workshops in the United States and abroad. Her training includes a four-year diploma at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, graduate studies at the Florence Academy, an Apprenticeship with Odd Nerdrum in Norway and studies at the Art League of Alexandria, Virginia. She continues her studies by observing and copying the painting of the Old Masters in art galleries throughout the world.

Seating is limited to create a rare opportunity for in-depth conversation with a single guest artist so rsvp early. Reservations can be made at (202) 331-7282 ext. 3 or via email at
