What a difference a block makes. For the Long View Gallery, a short move down 9th Street NW may become a major coup in a year when many galleries are struggling. Owner Drew Porterfield has opened a cavernous 5,000-square-foot gallery in an old warehouse across from the convention center—a major upgrade from his previous storefront space. The opening show is a collection of new work from gallery artists, among them, Scott G. Brooks, Anna Davis, Steve Pyke, Dan Ellyn and Matt Sesow. No one is breaking new ground in the featured work, but just as goldfish grow bigger when they’re placed in a larger bowl, the artists now have the freedom to expand their works on larger and larger canvases—a benefit they have rightly taken advantage of.
THE EXHIBITION IS ON VIEW 11 A.M. TO 7 P.M. WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY TO NOV. 22 AT LONG VIEW GALLERY, 1234 9TH ST. NW. FREE. (202) 232-4788.
