We had a great weekend filled with travelers from all parts of the world. I counted Peru, Canada, China, France and Brazilian visitors plus art lovers from the neighborhood and the surrounding metropolitan area. A lot of our visitors read about the event in Best Bets of the Washington Post last week.The Dupont Current spotlighed the Mid City Artists Open Studios in it's weekly issue thanks to writer Jessica Gould. And the Washington Blade interviewed several of the participating artists. The spectacular weather made it easy to take the walking tour of studios between Dupont Cicle, Logan Circle and Shaw. Freya Grand, myself and Angela White greeted between 15-20 art lovers, collectors and visitors an hour on both Saturday and Sunday (more on Sunday). So thanks to everyone who came out to support the arts, talk with artists, purchase fine art and enjoy our historic neighborhoods on two fabulous sunny days in May. You made our weekend and we hope we made yours a little art friendlier in your home. Come back in the fall when we will have new selections for your collections. If you saw art that you'd like to own and are still considering it, give us a call. We'll be happy to help you.
Here's a few pictures from our weekend.( I had to have a friend run around and photograph for me since I was busy talking nonstop!) It was a sweet weekend with a Peruvian grandmother who made my day on Sunday. You never know who's gonna show up!
