August 22-Oct. 5: Artemis Herber: No Man's Land
You can get an inside look at one artist's creative process on Saturdays through September 13, when Artemis Herber will be painting onsite at Artisphere in Arlington. The artist creates large-scale landscape paintings on cardboard, which she manipulates and mangles as a tribute to the impact humans have on nature. The finished work will be on view through October 5.
