If You Could Fill Your Home With a Local Artist's Work, Who Would You Pick?

Who are your favorite DC artists?
Are they up-and-coming or have they already made it on the art scene?
Is their artwork affordable or only accessible to wealthy collectors?
How did you come across them?

I’m contemplating pieces I’d want in a house in DC that could help support the local arts scene.

(Art Exhibition) The Push Back

What happens when those who were once viewed as meek and mild become confident and aware of their inherent power? Does this shift in status quo change the game or merely shift the players? If the victim can become victorious then surely the lines of power can also be blurred, redrawn or even crossed out.

Through visual works of art “The Push Back,” curated by Martina Dodd, tackles the complexities of the relational boundaries created to differentiate the oppressed and oppressor. Featuring work by David Ibata, Lionel Daniels, and Monique Dodd.

Opening Reception Friday July 24, 2015 6-8pm

Local Artist/Gallery Recommendations

I’m on the prowl for an original piece (painting, but open to other media) for a large wall in my living room. Stylistically, I’m not ultra modern but open beyond that. Anyone have any favorite artists or galleries they’d recommend checking out?
