The Housewright Gallery is a new art space in Georgetown run by Tim Pfeiffer and Steve Hoedemaker. Their inaugural exhibition is Northwest Influencers, a show that’s not about the most followed Washingtonian on Instagram but about a collection of artists from the influential Northwest School. Featuring paintings, works on paper, and sculpture, and spanning both pre- and post-World War II, the exhibit focuses on the influence these artists had on West Coast Modernism that reverberated throughout the art world. Among the artists included in the show are Mark Tobey, Peter Camfferman, Paul Horiuchi, Margaret Tomkins, Glen Alps, James Fitzgerald, and Ngaire Hixon.
