The reception for coverage was a flawless event. Packed with art lovers and collectors, we were proud to bring the work of 3 amazing artists to the public. Sam, a mad man, walked 6.2 miles through the sweltering heat pulling a self built cart the thursday before the reception collecting found objects creating a display of the environment connecting his home to the gallery. A projection documenting the event connected the public to his performance experience.
Megan has installed an display of mixed media assemblages with grace and texture while Sabeth has produced a fine installation of linotypes. Works are selling, and there was an air that the economy might be returning the DC area with a great increase of excitement and interest in art collecting. View the walkthrough below which was shot at the beginning of the reception, and drop us a line if you’re interested in setting up an appointment to view the work. Plan to come to the artist lecture on the 24th 6 to 8pm.

artdc Gallery presents a group exhibition of works that explore coverage with relationship to the body, geog raphy, and memory. Accumulating gestures and layers, while referencing the passage of time, these artists present works of sculpture, painting, printmaking and drawing. Sabeth Jackson’s work chronicles domestic themes and uses archetypal and culturally charged imagery to communicate emotions and stories. Megan Mueller finds inspiration in the architecture of tents and the lifestyles of the transient to investigate the idea of permission. Samuel Scharf explores the physicality of movement, collection and deconstruction.
