ARTOMATIC! May 7th, 2009
Today mark’s the first of many future posts discussing and promoting the 2009 Artomatic show. Artomatic was held last year in NoMa at the Capital Plaza building which was conviniently located across the street from my job site (which we posted about frequently last year). This year it is being held at Half Street’s 55 M St, SE in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. For those familiar with DC, it is the building that you come up underneath when you exit at the Navy Yard metro station for a Nat’s game.
For 2009 the AOM folks have over 1,000 artist of all mediums (from photography to fire dancing, and fine oil paints to tattoos) lined up and they are expecting ~70,000 people to attend. MAKE SURE YOU ARE ONE OF THEM! Artomatic will run from May 29 – July 5th so unless you are like some of those people over in France that take entire months off for vacation durring the summer you should be able to find some time. Oh, also…it is free to the public and they have multiple bars and bands on the weekends (just taking away excusses not to go left and right arn’t I?).
Last year I exhibited ~25 pictures but this year I am choosing to have a much more edited and themed exhibit (more in the realm of 6 – 8 pictures) with the working title of “White Wash”. It will focus on urban abstracts of white walls, fences, sheds, etc. and the effects of time, decay, exposure, and wear on the once crsip white veneer. We will post more details closer to 5/29 about specific events, opening times, etc.
