Art dealer Amy Morton's last show was described as a "pop-up project" and took place this past spring in the former Numark Gallery downtown. Since then, we haven't heard from her. On Friday from 6 to 10 p.m., her business Morton Fine Art will host a free opening reception to celebrate its permanent home at 1781 Florida Ave. NW (which some might remember as the recently shuttered clothing store For the Greater Good).
Morton is inaugurating the roughly 1,000-square-foot space, which she calls an "art lab" rather than a gallery, with "Small Works on Paper," a group exhibition featuring works by Vonn Sumner, Rosemary Feit Covey and Laurel Hausler. Don't expect Morton to settle down completely though. From her new base of operations in Adams Morgan, Morton plans another pop-up art project at a still-undetermined location this fall.
"Small Works on Paper" runs through Aug. 26. http://www.mortonfineart.com. 202-390-5118.
