Stephen and I both have a piece up for grabs. This is a wonderful opportunity to own local art to add to your collection, or to start collecting. The piece I'm offering is one of my earliest textscapes in acrylic on acrylic sheet. Stephen is offering Nemesis.

The artdc Gallery is pleased to announce our Gallery Auction Fundraiser on December 4, 2010.  Two years ago we developed our Hyattsville Gallery project as a result from our first auction, which we hosted at the Wohlfarth Gallery.  Since then, we have developed over 20 gallery exhibitions dedicated to representing the work of Washington, DC-area artists and developing awareness of our vibrant art scene. 

We’ve expanded our presence, and worked hard on the development of two additional pop-up gallery exhibitions in Arlington, VA with efforts to reach beyond Maryland and DC. 

We’ve started an art collection based off of works that ardc (Fine Art Ventures, LLC) has purchased to create an exhibition of area work that’s hung in our space.

We are growing and giving back to the community with our activity, and now we need your support.  We’ve assembled a tremendous exhibition, which is on display now at the artdc Gallery.  Fifty percent of all sales developed through the auction at the close of this show will support our activity, pursuit of pop-up galleries, and Web presence. 

Our auction is a tremendous opportunity to add to your collection and cover your walls at great prices while supporting artists and a grassroots movement.  Artists are offering amazing savings in the effort to support the Gallery.

Cheryl Edwards will act as the auctioneer.  She will provide an active and exciting environment for bidders and patrons.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own a great work of art.  Support our efforts and keep artdc moving forward.

Artists include:
Grayson Heck, D.B. Stoval, Mei Mei Chang, Wayson Jones, Sean Hennessey, Alexandra Zealand, Kimberly Stark, Christopher Brady, Heather Schmaedeke, Ric Garcia, Kelly Pearl, Cheryl Edwards, Tom Cardarella, Sarah M. Swift, Philip Yabut, Lori Anne Boocks, Stephen Boocks, Joe Rogers (Aiven), Paul T. Farley, Alan Rich, Ian Doherty, Angela Kleis, Jesse Cohen, and more.
