This image is in Kyle Tata's show "Secure Patterns", a collection of abstract images that feature patterns overlaid on subjects in an analog photographic process. The results are surprising- we joke that this is what happens when you do "DIY Laser Eye Surgery"! (Kidding!)

The hand sketched blueprint for Rachel Guardiola's installation "Transmission from Terra Incognita". It'll have gold paint, and mirrors, and plants, and projections, and...marmalade?!? Yes, marmalade.
The gallery will be closing today at 4pm for a private event...but you still have this Friday and Saturday to see the wildly popular "DIY Laser Eye Surgery". #weekendplans
Caught a purple lens flare in the gallery today. Instantly made this picture look better! 👍☀️📸🔮💯

We are super stoked that we got to talk with @girlpowermeetups in partnership with @transformerdc! Thanks so much for visiting, and for your enthusiasm and good vibes. 🎉
"Wiley has classical skills, but the world she depicts owes less to Botticelli than to Instagram." - Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post. Check out the full review in the "In the Galleries" section of the @washingtonpost. "DIY Laser Eye Surgery" is on view through June 24.

In the video installation "DIY Laser Eye Surgery", the main character chides her patient, Brad - a person who can only see in black and white - saying, "Yeah Brad, you're boring. You should see in, like, pink gradients and glitter like I do." The operation that ensues will allow Brad to see the world differently. ✨👁✨Tomorrow, at her 7 pm artist talk, you'll gain some insight into the creative mind of Rives Wiley, the creator "DIY Laser Eye Surgery". Unlike most of us, she's a person who arguably sees life in pink gradients and glitter, too.
