Last day at artDC is Monday, April 30th

April 27-30, 2007 Washington Convention Center, Hall E

There's so much good art to see and only one day left to see it at artDC. There were some good lectures today and I hope I run into someone who can give me a synopsis of "New Media, Explorations and Innovations" and "Then and Now: At Play in the Color Field." I am going to get down there tomorrow again to catch the last rays of artshine from this exciting new venue in DC. It's open from 11am-5pm at the Washington DC Convention Center.

Among the many wonderful exhibitors, I mentioned Project 4 at artDC but didn't mention the names of the exhibiting artists. Director Anne Surak has a line up of innovative artists working in interesting mediums. The artDC installation includes work by Anthony Goicolea, Tricia Keightley, J. J. McCracken, Andrea Cohen, Rich MacDonald, Greg McLellan, Ivanny Pagan, Evan Morgan and Partick Holderfield. Go see them at BOOTH #147, Hall E at the DC Convention Center tomorrow. On April 13, Project 4 co-hosted PRESS PLAY with The Pink Line Project

It's the last day, so if you haven't been yet or even if you have, don't miss all the great art by great artists from all over the world!!!

Here's an index of all the Exhibitors.

Also be sure to see the Artist Competition – The New Media Lounge,
Co-sponsored by Flashpoint, Cultural Development Corporation.
Organized by Rebecca Lowery, Flashpoint Gallery Manager.

"The endeavor of this special artDC new media installation is to create a forum for emerging, as-yet-unrepresented artists from across the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. As part of DC's first-ever contemporary art fair, the works in this grouping represent just one small stratum of the region's diversity, energy and breadth of artistic talent. Furthermore, the inclusive notion of showing, in the milieu of an art fair, works by artists who are not yet represented by galleries takes inspiration from the dedication of our area's curators, institutions and nonprofit art spaces such as Flashpoint, to nurturing emerging talent and expanding its visibility. There is much to discover and cultivate here in our capital city."

Selection Committee:
Philip Barlow, collector, F. Lennox Campello, artist, blogger, art critic and independent curator, David Gariff, Lecturer, National Gallery of Art, Angela Jerardi, independent curator, Victoria Reis, Executive Director, Transformer, Laura Roulet, independent curator and writer, Sarah Tanguy, Curator at the ART in Embassies Program, independent curator and critic

Participating Artists: Rebecca C. Adams, Heather Boaz, Derek Coté and John Henry Blatter, Ryan Hoover, Chris LaVoie, Scott Ligon, Aaron Oldenburg, Rob Parrish, Sara Pomerance, Richard Schellenberg, with original music by John Maestri, Katie Schuler and Trish Tillman
