"No Representation" at the Warehouse

This piece, titled "Clot" will be on display in the show "No representation", which opens at the Warehouse Cafe/Theater/Gallery complex this weekend. -update- this piece has sold! The show is scheduled as a (friendly) counterpoint to the first DC International Art Fair, which will be held directly across the street at the DC Convention Center and as an educational opportunity for the art world visitors to the fair.The phrase "no representation" has multiple meanings. In the language of art, "no representation" means that the work does not literally represent real scenes or people - it is abstract. In the language of politics, it means that DC residents have no voting representation in our national Congress. We hope to bring in the visitors to the art fair with our art and ask them to support our vote. We want to remind all who come that DC is a vibrant city full of creative people whose votes deserve to be counted. This show, curated by Molly Ruppert, Sondra Arkin, Ellyn Weiss and Phillipa Hughes, includes all media and has two rules only: all artists are from the Capital area and there is no representation. The show will kick off with the Freeform Bash, an unConventional party on Saturday night, April 28 from 6 pm on. There will be music during the party, which coincides with the annual Visions in Feminism weekend. Revelry is strongly encouraged.
