Tall Tales and High Tea

with Elliott Negin and Alter Ego Groover Cleveland

Saturday March 8, 2 pm to 4 pm

In conjunction with the exhibit, "Alter Ego," District Fine Arts in Georgetown will host an art talk on Saturday, March 8, from 2 pm to 4 pm, with award-winning illustrator and graphic designer Elliott Negin and his alter ego, Groover Cleveland. Along with the talk, the gallery will serve tea and other refreshments.

The exhibit, which features Negin's drawings and Cleveland's paintings and prints, runs until April 5.

Negin's illustrations have appeared the Atlantic Monthly, Boston Globe, New York Times, People, Sports Illustrated, Washington Post and other publications. Cleveland exhibited his neo-Pop paintings in a number of group shows in Washington in the early to mid-1990s and received favorable critical mention, but this is the first time he has shown his work since then.

A former Washington City Paper art critic, Negin will discuss a range of topics, including the historical roots of the work, the current status of illustration, and the meaning of life.
