    The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald as seen in Tracie Ching's mini solo show, Well Read.
Well Read: The Great Gatsby
In collaboration with Chicago’s Galerie F, D.C.-based artist Tracie Ching debuts her mini solo exhibition, “Well Read”.

“Well Read” investigates the relationship between contemporary films and the literary classics from which they are derived. In this body of work Tracie Ching explores different novels that have spawned successful film counterparts, creating her own interpretations which carefully adhere to their respective stories.  The show itself is a response to the use of source material and the effects that different visual representations have on them over time. Every representation, including Tracie’s, is a result of applying different filters to a piece of work that has become larger than the creator could have ever imagined. While the film industry may introduce aesthetic, thematic, or even plot changes, Tracie attempts to stay close to the original source material while applying aesthetics attributed to the time period of each novel.

Limited edition silk screen prints accompanied by letterpress bookmarks and custom bound books will be available at the opening reception on Friday, March 28th. All remaining works will be posted in Galerie F’s online store the following week. A portion of all proceeds from the show will be donated to Reading is Fundamental, , the largest children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States (
