Over 300 artists and art enthusiasts mixed and mingled in the halls of the Corcoran, as six local artists displayed and discussed their reactionary pieces to the gallery’s two current exhibitions, Sargent and the Sea and Edward Burtynsky: Oil.
The conversation between the two exhibits and local flavor was initiated by four visual artists: Tim Conlon, Chanel Compton, Brandon Hill and Aniekan Udofia. Each artist created an individual piece and also came together on a collaborative effort to continue the conversation started by the two exhibitions at the Corcoran. The original pieces were in direct conversation with either the Burtynsky or the Sargent exhbition.
This event would not have been possible without the artists. A very special
for their unending dedication in making this event possible. Each artist supported our mission at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities by aiding us in the support and cultivation of the rich artistic expression present throughout all of D.C.
Often in D.C., as in art, there are multiple conversations through out the city running independently of one other. This Art Salon aimed to provide not only a forum for these discussions to interact, but the support to enable these conversations to grow and expand upon one another.
