Washington Color and Light closes Sunday

The Corcoran Gallery’s “Washington Color and Light” is a collection of major works by the artists associated with the Washington Color School — Gene Davis, Thomas Downing, Morris Louis, Howard Mehring, Kenneth Noland and Paul Reed — and their contemporaries, including Rockne Krebs, Anne Truitt, Leon Berkowtiz and Alma Thomas. These works of abstract painting and sculpture from the mid-20th Century to the present are united by an exploration of the language of abstraction, a desire to experiment with materials, and a love of color. Closes this Sunday, March 6. Corcoran Gallery, 500 17th St. NW. Tickets are $10. Call 202-639-1700 or visit
