Washington, DC – Ringing in the New Year, Zenith displays new works in its January showcase, juxtaposed with pieces from the LOWCOUNTRY: Art of South Carolina show, which was featured in December and has been extended by popular demand. 

New artists making their Zenith Gallery debut, Spanish painter Cavadonga Sarragua Leyva and Washington area artist Ted Kliman add a classical, almost timeless, viewpoint to the gallery repertoire. Both excellent painters and draftsmen, they explore the human form in unique and interesting ways.

 A resident of Madrid, Leyva has exhibited her works throughout Spain and in Lebanon, Egypt and the United States.  Leyva has painted official portraits of several ministers of the Spanish Government as well as the grandson of Spain’s Royal Family.  She holds a MA in painting, drawing and engraving from Escuela de Bellas Artes in Madrid and Granada. 

Kliman’s paintings, drawings and prints have been shown in galleries and public spaces throughout the Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions, and can be found in approximately 200 private collections.  A longtime resident of Greenbelt, Maryland, he holds an MFA from the Maryland Institute of Art.

 Artists from the LOWCOUNTRY show are Jonathan Green, Leo Twiggs, Diane Britton Dunham, Cassandra Gillens, Susan Graber, Arianne King Comer, Herman Leonhardt, Marguerite Middleton and Jane Spratt.
