Trawick Prizewinners

I'm on the road today, but earlier one I was told that DC artist Maggie Michael had been awarded the Trawick Prize. Congrats to Maggie!

Did I pick it or what?

Her husband Dan Steinhilber was awarded second place.

And Bernhard Hildebrandt took third and Ryan Browning won the "Young Artist Award."

Congrats to all!

Wanna go to a Philly opening tomorrow?

Work by Tim TateOver in this neck of the woods we're excited that Washington, DC uberartist Tim Tate is making his solo debut in Philadelphia at Pentimenti Gallery, one of Philly's top galleries (Disclaimer: Tate is our good friend and we were his first art dealer back in DC and we still deal his work at art fairs. We also have his work in our private collection and stand to become fabulously wealthy one day).

If you want to see the future of content-driven, self-contained installation videos, don't miss this show - we won't! The opening reception is from 6 - 8:30 p.m. The Pentimenti Gallery is located at 145 North 2nd Street in Philly.
