This past weekend I checked out the Georgetown ARTS show that was held in House of Sweden in Georgetown. First of all, I have to say that House of Sweden is a cool-looking building! If I had to guess, I would say that the theme must have been “water”. There were waterfalls on either side of the entrance as you walk in, there was a little pool of water that was next to the entrance of the art show, many windows allowed guests a view of the Potomac River, and they had some bomb-tasting drinking water for the guests. It was nice to visit such a sleek and modern place.
Anyway…I wanted to share some pictures from my visit to the show and the random pictures of my niece Desiree and me. She had some favorites in the show, but was actually more interested in all the water we encountered haha. I gave her the job of taking pictures of some of the work for me to put in this post…She did her best, haha.
Just a bit of background about the Georgetown Art Show, it is held by The Citizens Association of Georgetown and 2012 marks their third year holding the show. The majority of the artists featured are residents of, or have studios in Georgetown. House of Sweden is the chief sponsor of the show.
It was great to see some local talent, most of the pieces there were more on the traditional side of art – oil and watercolor paintings, and sculpture. There were a few mixed media pieces that were represented in the show. I actually recognized one of the artists, Natasha Mokina. I took a portrait class taught by her about 2 years ago. Such an amazing, gentle spirit who is packed with so much talent as an artist. She and her husband are tough as instructors, but they really helped take my portrait painting skills to the next level.
