Wait until you discover the really cool paintings on flesh by DC area installation artist Alexa Meade.

Alexa Meade's innovative use of paint on the three dimensional surfaces of found objects, live models, and architectural spaces has been incorporated into a series of installations that create a perceptual shift in how we experience and interpret spatial relationships.

Yesterday's Jury Duty

Yesterday I juried the Gateway Arts Center grand opening exhibition of artists who live or work in the Gateway Arts District.

The Gateway Arts Center at Brentwood looks great after its refurbishing - it used to be the former Brentwood Arts Center.

It's located at 3901 Rhode Island Ave., Brentwood, MD. The art shows will be at the 2500 s/f gallery space on the ground floor and there is 900 s/f classroom on the first floor as well. The remaining 1700 s/f of space on the first floor is available studio space. The second floor has 5500 s/f of studio space for rent with a 450 s/f gallery that will be managed by the Gateway CDC. There are already several artists working there and there are two studio spaces currently available. Contact them for details.

I was amazed by the large number of blue chip artists from the District who actually live or have a studio in the area. Wait until you see this grand opening show! The grand opening is next April 10.
