Hello all- I hope everyone is having a great summer. For those of you who will be in the Washington, D.C. area in July, I'd like to let you know about a show I'll will be participating in.
My Space on 7th July 11 - August 4, 2007
Opening Reception: Friday, July 13th, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. Closing Reception: Saturday, August 4th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
Touchstone Gallery 406 7th Street, NW, 2nd floor Washington, DC 20004 202-347-2787 http://www.touchstonegallery.com
If you read the press release from the gallery (included below) you will see that it took no great talent for me to snag a space in this show. All it took was persistent dialing. However, being polite and flexible got me a really great space. My work will be one of the first you will see when you walk into the gallery. Mickey and I will be at the opening and possibly at the closing so I hope to see some of my DC friends there! Feel free to forward this info to anyone else you know who might be interested. The gallery is also being really great about sales and they are taking NO COMMISSION on work sold at the show.
Gallery Press Release:
"Answering the need for alternative and interactive exhibition opportunities, Touchstone Gallery created a unique, non-juried option. On July 9th and 10th, artists will hang the art of their choice in their assigned space(s) in the Main Gallery.
In less than two days, the 76, 22-square-foot spaces available were quickly snatched up, overwhelming the phones at Touchstone. Many artists eagerly waited outside the gallery's doors in hopes of being the first to reserve their space as this was a first-come, first-served opportunity.
This exhibition will coincide with the Capital Fringe Festival, where Touchstone Gallery will host several plays on a stage in the center of the gallery. Including more than 400 performances in 22 DC locations, "Cap Fringe" sold more 566 tickets (sold-out shows!) at Touchstone alone last year!"
