"I think everyone enjoyed the event...Very successful." Kevin McDuffie, Branch Vice President
We had great weather, music and a great turnout for the opening of my exhibits, Intonation and Geometry of the City at Coldwell Banker's Art 17 last night. Art 17 is the brainchild of Realtor Kevin McDuffie who also has a background in the arts. He showcases local artists in two month exhibitions in the Dupont branch offices on 17th Street NW. Kevin found my work in the WPA/C Artist Directory. My cityscapes are exhibiting upstairs and the abstract paintings are downstairs. When you go, be sure to see both exhibitions. The Art 17 space shows art well. A surprise to me was how wonderful the paintings look on a matte brick wall. The colors really pop! Home owners with exposed brick walls may already know this, if not, come see for yourself.
Marilou Donahue of Artistically Speaking TV website stopped by to say hello. Writer Robin Tierney dropped by early and listed the opening in her Arts column for Thursday's Examiner. You can see it here. I am showing abstract paintings from the Ellipsis Series and Playground Series. The cityscapes are from three cities neighborhoods that I love, Washington, DC, Paris and New Orleans. And there's one giclee of NYC.
Lenore Miller, Director of University Art Galleries at George Washington University stopped by to see the work as did Architect Dhiru Thadani who created the beautiful pocket park at the Westminster Playground. Dhiru's daughter came to assist with the evening's festivities. It was a wonderful evening full of laughter, good food and art lovers. Here's some pictures of the evening. Enjoy!Artist colleagues: Janet Bruce, Karlisima, Anne Marchand, Carlotta Hester, Angela White "View Over Decatur Street", Oil, 40" x 30"
