PAST: ART: Mid City Artists Fall Open House SAT, Nov 6th & SUN, Nov 7th from 12:00pm - 5:00pm, Free
25 artists open their studios this weekend!
Saturday, November 6th &
Sunday, November 7th
Enjoy this unique opportunity to see some of DC’s most exciting artists in their 'home environments' and to have a chance to chat with them about their creative process. You'll likely want to download a handy PDF Map and plan your route's basic agenda in advance so you can have a sense of the area and where the artists are located. Note: Some studio times vary so please check the schedule.
Artists styles are diverse amongst the artists. You can find drawings, sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs and mixed media. For a full list of participating artists, including Scott Brooks (who recently had a fabulous opening at Long View), Colin Winterbottom, Sondra Arkin, and my friend Joren Lindholm, click here!
Where is Mid City? It covers a similar area to Borderstan. Basically from Dupont Circle to Scott Circle and Logan Circle and North to Florida Ave, NW. While in the neighborhood, be sure to visit some of the supporting Galleries in the area and other art related businesses - and maybe hop into Mid City Caffe for some of their fabulous espresso. They are above Miss Pixies - another cool spot - on 14th St near R.
Mid City Artists - locations vary
Metro: I'd suggest starting around 14th & P St/ RI Ave - take the Circulator bus there along 14th St from U St or McPherson Square.
