Hamiltonian Artists’ annual new.now. exhibition, showcasing the articulation of artists’ vision, returns with work from the five 2021-2023 distinguished fellows—Kyrae Dawaun, Cecilia Kim, Ara Koh, Samera Paz, and Matthew Russo—selected by an independent national jury of arts professionals. The mission of the organization is to assist the city’s next generation of creators through mentorship and investment by providing access to a culturally prominent exhibition space located along the U Street Corridor. As part of that mission, the organization created the Hamiltonian Artist Fellowship to provide assistance to visionaries seeking careers as professional artists. This year’s new.now. offers a preview of selected artistic and creative work across various mediums such as painting, sculpture, and theatrical work. The artists explore family relationships, womanhood, gender, sexuality, and more. new.now. runs through Jan. 29; the closing reception starts at 4 p.m. on Jan. 29 at Hamiltonian Artists, 1353 U St. NW. hamiltonianartists.org. Free. Proof of vax and masks required.
