CENSORED AT RESULTS THE GYM

Mid City Artists is having a Winter Exhibition to introduce our artists to another community in the District of Columbia. The exhibition continues until March 12, 2006. For more information visit Mid City Artists web page.

I went to the opening of Mid City Artists Winter Exhibition at Results Gallery which is the Results Gym at 315 G Street, SE, Washington, D.C. on Capital Hill. I went to the Thursday evening reception with talented artist, Angela White . We were surprised when two of Angela's oils on canvas weren't hung by the management because a certain part of the male anatomy was visible. A Classical nude by Regina Miele was also NOT hung by the management. You can see four of the six canvases by Angela White in the Results Gallery and four beautiful cityscapes by Regina Miele. I am showing five discreet cityscapes of Paris and New Orleans in the Mid City Artists Winter Art Exhibition. The exhibition includes the work of 21 Mid City Artists including metal sculptures by Robert Cole, figure paintings by G. Bryon Peck, photography by Mark Parascandola and abstract paintings by Sondra Arkin and Mike Weber. See the invitation with names of participating artists here.

A lively group of artists and visitors, including Warehouse Gallery owner, Molly Ruppert, visited the exhibition reception while gym members exercised on treadmills and other exercise equipment on three floors of a renovated schoolhouse. Molly overheard someone say that "Results isn't a gym, it's a lifestyle." Results Gallery is definitely a unique environment for viewing art. A visiting sculptor, Chas Colburn found the layout a bit chaotic and I found the censorship a bit ironic in a body focused business.
