Art by Pam Rogers "Peak to Peak Mica"

Art by Pam Rogers “Peak to Peak Mica”

“Welcome to Wonderland: Rethinking Landscape” is a juried exhibition, by curator Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, and guest juror Hilary-Morgan Watt, that explores abstract ideas about landscape and place.  The practice of depicting landscape is as old as the history of art itself.  Today’s artists working in abstraction and conceptual art continue to explore the relationship between art and landscape, vantage points, and distance, but with added complexities such as the meaning of exact GPS locale, urban design vs. natural scenery, and place within the vastness of the solar system.  The artists of “Welcome to Wonderland” explore life as much as they do landscape and abstraction in various 2D and 3D works.  The exhibition ” showcases abstraction, and abstract thought processes, in imaginary and impossible spatial relationships, nontraditional conceptual notions of home and place, and unconventional objects that tell the story of landscape and place.

Who: artdc Gallery
What: Magnetism
Where: 5710 Baltimore Ave., Hyattsville, MD 20781
Exhibition dates: 6/1/14 – 6/29/14
Reception: Saturday 6/7/14, 7-10 p.m.

Magnetism is an exhibition of Washington, DC-area artists from our previous 2014 small works open call show. We saw a connection between artists in that exhibit with bright color abstractions countered with monochromatic works bursting with energy.

We worked to define the connection between these works, and they are all exploding with energy and movement that made us ask, What is light? Light is electromagnetic energy. We made a bit of a leap and shortened the title to Magnetism as the show draws you in like a magnet to steel.

The show includes Mixed Media art, Paintings, Photography, and Sculpture.

Galleries by nature have to act as gate keepers to survive in our economy, which often means the opportunity to show is limited by the ability to sell.

To support our mission to develop creative community, we opened the floodgates and invited anyone interested to show work in our current small works exhibition.

The 16” x 16” exhibition is open call, and has a zero percent gallery commission. All sales are direct with the artist! We are excited to see work from students to emerging artists to established artists on the wall.

All works are 16 x 16 inches or smaller across many media — paintings, photography, mixed media and sculpture.

Come and buy some art direct from the artist!

In 2013 we let the world know Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. We curated a list of Washington, DC-area artists. There was no limitation to medium or experience. This list represented a group of DC-area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geo-location and Twitter.

Why do this? More than half of the U.S. population has a smartphone. There are more than 645 million Twitter users. With these numbers, the potential for creative connections for artists at no cost is astounding. With the right energy, we can connect with millions of people.

We are excited to announce our second social media show — #WeTweetArt V2.0. Last year we met to celebrate the growing connection of artists and art lovers on social media, and we’re doing it again!

Via Twitter we invited artists to join us for a mass art installation in the artdc gallery. This exhibition was an open call for art for DC-area Twitter users. It represents just a tiny cross section of what’s out there. Find our Twitter activity here.

Our reception / TweetUp on March 22 will be an opportunity for a public face-to-face, to bring the life of our art and relationships on Twitter to social media at through live tweeting.

Artists will tweet images of their work in the show, on the night of the reception, which will act as a show catalog. When a patron attends the show, they can use their smartphone to look up an artist’s profile, find more about their work and potentially develop a relationship or buy a work of art. Meanwhile artists can comment and connect with other patrons face-to-face and on the Internet.

We present the work of the Maryland Art Critique group. The artists have held meetings for 2 years. For the last 6 months they have met on a regular basis at the artdc Gallery. This is an all-inclusive group with the goal of providing positive and constructive feedback. Art criticism is necessary for the growth of all artists. Artists gain experience through the reactions of their peers and mentors. With this, they can channel the energy of their critique and work to progress. We have offered the group an opportunity to expand through the display of their work.
