Molly Darr

A child of Philadelphia, Molly Brown Bogounoff Darr received her initial artistic training at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, having grown up in a household that nurtured art and produced a talented architect brother. Eventually becoming a foreign service wife and mother of two, Molly both traveled the world and remained centered in Washington, D.C. She continued her art studies with color field artist Gene Davis at the Corcoran School of Art and Design, and was one of his four students who established the Foundry Gallery in the old Duvall Foundry Building in Georgetown in 1971. (The gallery is now in the historic Dupont Circle district.) Molly’s works were shown there and at Gallery K, Osuna Gallery, and the WPA, and can now be found in collections around the world.
