7 group shows / Whodunit exhibit - Sat. 2/9 at the ArtDC gallery!
« on: February 04, 2013, 08:43:27 AM »
Whodunit - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Artists included in this show will either show an original from their own collection in their own style or imitate another artist's style... or maybe both! The viewers exploring the works in the show will embark on a treasure hunt as they try to determine if a piece was done by the original artist or someone else. If the piece is a copy — then who did the copy?
Opening Reception:
Saturday, February 9th
7:30pm - 10pm
at the ArtDC gallery

5710 Baltimore Ave.
Hyattsville,  MD 20781

(adjective) local artists help (verb) a story through their art. The catch is that the (noun -pl) don’t know what the story is. The artists only received a type of word to illustrate. The artworks will complete the (noun) with the help of your interpretations. The (adjective) stories the visitors create will all be included as part of the (noun).

Reception: Saturday July 21, 3-5pm
Harmony Hall Regional Center
10701 Livingston Rd
Fort Washington, MD 20744

AOM Archive / 11th floor artists - The Penthouse
« on: April 22, 2012, 09:31:42 AM »
I almost went with a space on 9 but finally decided on a nifty space on the 11th floor in the NorthWest section 1. Big thank you to Tom and Tracy for their help with my selection. (My official Wayfinder ID is:  11-1-01-0141)

I was able to take over a small room that I will be transforming into a blacklight-reactive environment displaying my offbeat paintings.  I'm looking forward to another amazing Artomatic!!

So....  who else is on the top floor?

RAW events feature a cash bar for cocktails while you enjoy the night. Dress code is cocktail attire, so dress the occasion and get ready for an artistic circus of creativity!
