Previously we let the world know we think Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. We curated a list of Washington, DC area artists. There’s no limitation to medium or experience. This list represents a group of DC-area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geo-location and Twitter.

We are producing our third social media connected show. This is #WeTweetArt V3.0. In the past, we met  to celebrate the growing connection of artists and art lovers on social media. We invited artists via twitter to join us for a mass art installation. As a result, a great number of artists installed work in the gallery on 2 occasions.

At the space, artists met the public face-to-face, and we brought the life of the art we found on Twitter back to social media at that moment through live tweeting. It was a unique experience to see social interactions alive through smartphones, oddly quiet in a crowded room filled with the improvisational sounds of Sassoon.

As a result of the show, according to Topsy statistics, we saw over 1,000 tweets on a previously unused hashtag for each show. That’s a lot of energy, which means we need continue this trend!

V2.0 http://artdc.com/2014/03/13/wetweetartv2/

We invite you to promote this exhibit on Twitter and other social media platforms such as Facebook. We realize there are folks who may want to share in the fun elsewhere. Bring it on! Find our Facebook group here: www.facebook.com/groups/theartdc .  (The event page is coming!!!)

Why do this? More than half of the U.S. population have smartphones according to Forbes magazine. http://www.forbes.com/sites/markrogowsky/2013/06/06/more-than-half-of-us-have-smartphones-giving-apple-and-google-much-to-smile-about/

There are over 645 million Twitter users.  http://www.statisticbrain.com/twitter-statistics/ The potential for creative connections for artists at no cost is astounding and moving at incredible pace. With the right energy, one can literally connect with millions of people. What an incredible tool. With such a large number there is great potential to meet art patrons, collectors, and artists to collaborate with and more.

This is an open call exhibition of art for DC-area Twitter users. The artists must be on Twitter and they all must tweet @artdc about their work in the exhibition.

SHOOTOUT AT THE DADA SALON brings together nine DC-area artists whose work defies expectations, taking the viewer on a winding journey. Surrealism? Dadaism? These local artists march to the beat of their own drummers. In these works, they redefine aesthetics as they so please, confront cultural mores, swallow them, digest them, and defy logic in works that stand in a universe of each artist's own creation. This diverse collection of 2D and 3D works alludes to reality, but a reality that has been twisted and subjected to each artist's will. Their unique voices help us reflect on the sometimes harsh realities of our physical world and our ability, through art and humor, to transcend them.

Guest Curator: Roger Cutler

Artists are rarely asked to observe themselves as an editor or curator would. They decide what makes successful work based on a limited set of parameters.  This month, guest curator Roger Cutler decided to take advantage of this fact and asked artists to showcase their work without providing them a theme or structure as one frequently finds in group shows.  By setting this “system" in motion the artists were faced with a decision regarding their work;  They had to decide what constituted acceptable work for them, both as stand alone artworks and as works that represent who and what they are as creators.

If you don’t know Roger Cutler, you may not be getting out in the art scene enough. Roger is an artist who surrounds himself with creative individuals. From building dinosaurs and structures out of wire to casting metal, he is about the process and the system of art and he loves to tinker with everything. His spirit reminds us of why we wanted to make art to begin with. This show is a collaborative vision of the creative and conceptual decision making process that all artists face. Simply put, the artist is now the curator, and these works are indicative of that idea. As a result, the show as a whole is representative of a curiosity and appreciation for setting a system in motion that brought together work that is at the same time disconnected yet fully connected by the the ideas that are made possible in few other places than Roger’s World.  With a special thanks to Thomas Petzwinkler for his curatorial insight.

Why Roger? Because we said so.

Curiosity killed the cat or so they say. So what happens when the curator, a person who normally supervises an exhibit, relinquishes control to other curators with no guidance except to focus on a very broad genre of art: the figure. The result is the making of a curious curatorial mix of curators and artists that reflect what figurative work is being appreciated internally within the art community. The result is a fun, mini local survey of what is figurative art today.

Guest curators and participating artists include Jessika Dene Tarr, Jenny Walton, Joren Lindholm, Trevor Young, Yar Koporulin, Katherine Knight, Megan McNitt, and Jackie Greenbaum.

Curate the Curator is a project conceived by Jackie Hoysted.

Our reception is in conjunction with the Hyattsville Art Festival: http://hyattsvilleartsfestival.com/ Join us at the gallery, then check out the festival!

Beginning at any point and continuing on infinitely into space, as each new line is created moving outward in any direction, a structure begins to form in the empty space an armature in which to construct our universe. The components of this network Michael Faraday called "lines-of-force," an invisible electrically charged, tentacle-like network that spread invisibly through the earth's matter and the space surrounding the earth. This network describes the rational natural law which is made visible through the artist’s grid. The exhibition is entitled The Death of Socrates which is taken from Jacques Louis David’s painting of Socrates’ death by hemlock. Painted during the Enlightenment (a rebirth of analytical thought) one can see the grid in the studies and faintly in David’s finished painting, the logical structure on which the painter and the subject created their worlds. Society now having a structure on which nature itself is built will look inward in an attempt to bring order to the ugliness of mankind. Through abstraction the Cubists, Futurists, and Suprematists attempted to bring form to the alogical psyche. Drawing transforms perception into naming, rendering into form, and it is in this naming that the artist and the spectator begin to know themselves and the world around them. The work displayed in this exhibition differs in style and conceptual content, points of overlap can be discerned in the graphic and a textual convention associated with line and grid, and conveys multiple perspectives on their use in contemporary art. The viewer is invited to enter this historical and conceptual dialogue with the work in an attempt to capture the multitude of vantage points with which interpretations can be made and a knowing can occur.

“Welcome to Wonderland: Rethinking Landscape” is a juried exhibition, by curator Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, and guest juror Hilary-Morgan Watt, that explores abstract ideas about landscape and place.  The practice of depicting landscape is as old as the history of art itself.  Today’s artists working in abstraction and conceptual art continue to explore the relationship between art and landscape, vantage points, and distance, but with added complexities such as the meaning of exact GPS locale, urban design vs. natural scenery, and place within the vastness of the solar system.  The artists of “Welcome to Wonderland” explore life as much as they do landscape and abstraction in various 2D and 3D works.  The exhibition ” showcases abstraction, and abstract thought processes, in imaginary and impossible spatial relationships, nontraditional conceptual notions of home and place, and unconventional objects that tell the story of landscape and place.

Magnetism is an exhibition of Washington, DC-area artists from our previous 2014 small works open call show. We saw a connection between artists in that exhibit with bright color abstractions countered with monochromatic works bursting with energy.

We worked to define the connection between these works, and they are all exploding with energy and movement that made us ask, What is light? Light is electromagnetic energy. We made a bit of a leap and shortened the title to Magnetism as the show draws you in like a magnet to steel.

The show includes Mixed Media art, Paintings, Photography, and Sculpture.

In 2013 we let the world know Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. We curated a list of Washington, DC-area artists. There was no limitation to medium or experience. This list represented a group of DC-area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geo-location and Twitter.

Why do this? More than half of the U.S. population has a smartphone http://www.forbes.com/sites/markrogowsky/2013/06/06/more-than-half-of-us-have-smartphones-giving-apple-and-google-much-to-smile-about/

There are more than 645 million Twitter users http://www.statisticbrain.com/twitter-statistics/ With these numbers, the potential for creative connections for artists at no cost is astounding. With the right energy, we can connect with millions of people.

We are excited to announce our second social media show -- #WeTweetArt V2.0. Last year we met to celebrate the growing connection of artists and art lovers on social media, and we’re doing it again!

Via Twitter we invited artists to join us for a mass art installation in the artdc gallery. This exhibition was an open call for art for DC-area Twitter users. It represents just a tiny cross section of what’s out there. Find our Twitter activity here: http://artdc.com/2013/08/23/wetweetart/#more-1824


Our reception / TweetUp on March 22 will be an opportunity for a public face-to-face, to bring the life of our art and relationships on Twitter to social media at through live tweeting.

Artists will tweet images of their work in the show, on the night of the reception, which will act as a show catalog. When a patron attends the show, they can use their smartphone to look up an artist’s profile, find more about their work and potentially develop a relationship or buy a work of art. Meanwhile artists can comment and connect with other patrons face-to-face and on the Internet.

Previously we let the world know we think Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. We curated a list of Washington, DC area artists. There’s no limitation to medium or experience. This list represents a group of DC-area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geo-location and Twitter.

We are producing our second social media connected show. This is #WeTweetArt 2.0. Previously, we met on 9/7/13 to celebrate the growing connection of artists and art lovers on social media. We invited artists via twitter to join us for a mass art installation. As a result, 42 artists installed work in the gallery. Find them here: http://artdc.com/2013/08/23/wetweetart/#more-1824 . At the space, artists met the public face-to-face, and we brought the life of the art we found on Twitter back to social media at that moment through live tweeting. It was a unique experience to see social interactions alive through smartphones, oddly quiet in a crowded room filled with the improvisational sounds of Sassoon.

As a result of the show, according to Topsy statistics, we saw over 1,000 tweets by 9/7/13 on a previously unused hashtag. That’s a lot of energy, which means we need to do it again!

We invite artists to promote this exhibit on Twitter and other social media platforms such as Facebook. We realize there are folks who may want to share in the fun elsewhere. Bring it on! Find our Facebook group here: www.facebook.com/groups/theartdc .

Why do this? More than half of the U.S. population have smartphones according to Forbes magazine. http://www.forbes.com/sites/markrogowsky/2013/06/06/more-than-half-of-us-have-smartphones-giving-apple-and-google-much-to-smile-about/

There are over 645 million Twitter users.  http://www.statisticbrain.com/twitter-statistics/ The potential for creative connections for artists at no cost is astounding and moving at incredible pace. With the right energy, one can literally connect with millions of people. What an incredible tool.

This is an all-inclusive group with the goal of providing positive and constructive feedback. Art criticism is necessary for the growth of all artists. Artists gain experience through the reactions of their peers and mentors. With this, they can channel the energy of their critique and work to progress. We have offered the group an opportunity to expand through the display of their work.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Victoria Reis/Julia Young

October 15, 2013 202.483.1102; info@transformerdc.org

t r a n s f o r m e r celebrates the 10th ANNIVERSARY of its SILENT AUCTION & BENEFIT PARTY

Tickets now on-sale for November 15th event at the Corcoran Gallery of Art On November 15, Transformer will celebrate its 10th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Party at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, marking a decade of successful fundraising for this unique organization’s year-round programming, exhibitions, and services to artists via one of the most highly anticipated events of the fall arts season in Washington, DC. The first arts organization in DC dedicated specifically to connecting and promoting emerging visual artists, Transformer was founded in 2002 and has grown into a visionary leader and stimulus for experimental art, a feat that would not be possible without the immense support amassed through its annual Auction.

Partnering with artists, curators, and a wide range of organizations, Transformer acts as both catalyst and advocate for emergent expression in the visual arts through programs and services designed to educate artists about opportunities for sustainability, while developing audience through promotion and exposure. Transformer strengthens the creative community by acting as an epicenter for artists, collectors, curators, and supporters with exhibitions, programs, and events that connect the community around artistic display and discourse. The annual Auction is an extension of Transformer’s mission, cultivating partnerships between galleries, artists, and local businesses.

Transformer’s Annual Auction has grown significantly since its inception, evolving much like the organization itself. While retaining its cutting-edge aesthetic, both Transformer and its Auction have grown incredible support over the past ten years. First hosted by Fusebox Gallery in 2004, the initial Transformer Auction presented a modest yet  dynamic group of artists - Frank Day, Jae Ko, Pepa Leon, Maggie Michael, William A. Newman, Jose Ruiz and Dan Steinhilber, among others - who continue to champion Transformer’s work and their peer artists through their Auction participation. The launch of the Transformer’s Auction, also grew its committed Board of Directors , who helped to establish and grow a generous Host Committee of friends and supporters of the vivacious new non-profit, which continues to operate out of its ‘micro-powerhouse’ space at 1404 P Street, NW in Logan Circle.

After two successful Auctions at Fusebox, the DC community’s incredible support of the organization through the event led to the need for a larger venue, and in 2006, the 3rd Annual Auction & Benefit Party was presented at Pepco’s Edison Place Gallery.
With an increasingly larger Host Committee of individual donors, more than one hundred participating artists, and the
introduction of Restaurant and Corporate Sponsors - Buck’s Fishing & Camping, Zaytinya, Paisley Fig and Rippeteau Architects PC, Timothy Paul Carpets + Textiles, among many others continue to help support the event and the organization,  ransformer’s 4th & 5th Annual Auctions were hosted at John Dreyfuss’ Sculpture Studio at Halcyon House. Beautifully re-enforcing Transformer’s mission of broad collaborations and partnerships, the Auctions at Halcyon House raised the bar for Transformer’s annual event, and set the ambitious tone it would pursue for its next five years.

A primary part of Transformer’s mission is to create innovative collaborations with peer art spaces as well as larger cultural institutions both within DC and abroad in an effort to build increased opportunity for emerging artists and their audiences. The 6th & 7th Annual Auctions held at the Mexican Cultural Institute were a very successful turning point in Transformer’s work to grow international relationships for artists. Speaking at a pre-Auction event held at the Mexican Ambassador’s residence, then Ambassador Sarukhan shared the following remarks about Transformer: “This wonderful organization has become an essential part of the DC arts scene, providing a platform for emerging artists to explore and present their work. They do this, moreover, not only locally or indeed nationally, but also at an international level, connecting and promoting visual artists through partnerships with institutions abroad, helping cement all important transnational ties that further enrich and stimulate this community.”

In 2011, Transformer solidified its ongoing relationship with the Corcoran via the Auction, yet another bold partnership for the
organization that was initiated early on in Transformer’s development via exhibitions of graduating Corcoran College of Art + Design artists. The 8th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Party was presented at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, where is will be presented for the 3rd year in a row this November 15, 2013. Having garnered ten successful years of support to showcase progressive and experimental artwork through its Auctions, Transformer is proud to present its 10th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Party over two floors at the Corcoran this year. Our Diplomatic Chair, The Ambassador of Colombia, His Excellency Carlos Urrutia, Transformer’s Board and illustrious Auction Host Committee, invite guests to an evening of artistic exploration and celebration Friday, November 15, 8 -11pm. Auction attendees will enjoy savories, sweets, and drinks by many of D.C.’s finest restaurants, as well as music by DJs Yellow Fever and special guest DJ Natty Boom.

Transformer’s 10th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Party features 200 artworks by local, national, and international emerging and established artists. An extension of Transformer’s overall cutting edge aesthetic, the Auction provides new and experienced collectors with a unique opportunity to purchase exceptional work by respected artists, selected by a nominating committee of curators, artists, and arts professionals, including: Félix Ángel, Artist; Seth Adelsberger and Alex Ebstein, Artists and Co-Directors of NUDASHANK; Eames Armstrong, Artist and Curator; Cynthia Connolly, Artist and Visual Arts Curator at Artisphere; Maria Fernanda Currea, Project Manager of Odeon Theatre Foundation; Mia Feuer, Artist and Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Art Foundation at George Mason University; Tim Doud, Artist and Associate Professor of Art at American University; Victoria Greising, Artist and Founding Member of Delicious Spectacle; Carolina Mayorga, Artist, as well as Transformer’s staff and Board of Directors.

Tickets are $150 through November 1; $175 November 2-14. Advance ticket purchase is required. Tickets can be purchased at http://transformerauction2013.eventbrite.com through November 14, 2013.
