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.

Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. Over the past few months, we’ve curated a list of Washington, DC area artists. There’s no limitation to medium or experience. This list represents 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 geolocation and twitter. The expanse of styles and interest make this a unique opportunity to view first hand, in person; previously only visible a smart phone or computer.

Beyond half of the US population have smart phones according to Forbes Magazine.

There are over 554 Million Twitter users. http://www.statisticbrain.com/twitter-statistics/ The potential for creative connections for artists at no cost is astounding, and moving at incredible pace.

We’re hosting an open call exhibition of art for DC area twitter users. There’s one limitation, the artists must be on twitter, they all must tweet @artdc about their work in the exhibition. This exhibition represents a tiny cross section of what’s out there. Twitter art activity is growing, right now, as you read this.

Curator: Roger Cutler

This summer everything moves at artdc. Guest curator Roger Cutler sees the restrained playfulness in life and art. He moved away from static art and corralled a group of kinetic sculptors to develop a mobile show. Everyone has a reaction to art—now the art reacts to you.

There are no wallflowers or high horses this month. Our work is away from the wall and off of the pedestal. Mobiles confront you as you move through the gallery. It’s magnificent to walk amongst the art and experience its reaction to you in passing. The residual traces and memories of our movements are manifested through the dance of mobiles. The flights of the art are mesmerizing and delightful. Color and movement exists in tandem in every direction. The mobiles’ activation, a result of the invisible energy in the air around us, is a stellar experience to be had. Watch your head!

To celebrate, we will offer art demonstrations so you can create your own wire-based sculpture at the reception. For the closing celebration we will give away free art in celebration of mobile originator Alexander Calder’s birthday!

Join us this Saturday June 29th, 7-10 p.m. at the artdc Gallery for the opening reception of Get Off The Wall. We will offer light snacks and beverages free of charge. This event is free and open to the public.  Closing celebration is July 27, 2013.
