Being part of a big art exhibit is a great opportunity to make yourself available to those who have never seen your work. Unfortunately, not everyone can go see my art if they’re not close enough to go the show. However, Artomatic, has given artists a chance to share more about themselves, the art they create and a little bit about what the experience has been like. You can view my interview here .
Wondering where I’ve been? Well, first of all, what an autumn it’s been. We’ve had some amazing weather in the DC metro area, and I’ve taken a much needed break away from electronics and staying in my studio to enjoy the warm sunshine that we’ve been so lucky to have. We’re half way through the month and we know as it gets closer to December the days get shorter and shorter (and darker). I have to take these breaks to think about my next projects and give myself space between the work I’ve done and the next work I want to do.
Don’t worry! I’m not stopping, but sometimes I use these short breaks to recharge my batteries and get re-inspired. One of the things that has really inspired me in the last few weeks is the Artomatic show. It really is a fantastic event that brings people out of their respective studios and art places and puts the art into view of the public. It’s not often that I have been able to show, due to many reasons…but I knew I could not let this go by.
Here are my pieces that are currently hanging out in Hyattsville.
Friday night I made it to Hyattsville, MD to the opening night of Artomatic. It was a blast. The venue has four floors of original art, and there is such a variety of different local artists represented here. You can see everything from artists who draw on the subway to installations that deal with social justice issues, and everything in between. Some things shock, some things leave you questioning what is art, and others just amaze. I only saw about 1/2 the exhibit, but I’ll be going back again and again.
Artomatic is a great opportunity for artists to showcase a work. I am currently showing many pieces there, and I can’t wait to see what the response is to my work. It gives artists a chance to be exposed to a lot of different kinds of viewers. It’s a totally free event and right next to the New Carrollton metro stop. Here are some snap shots of what you can see.
