You may have heard that I am a fan of local painter Dana Ellyn (evidenced by this and this and this). It’s true. Dare I say, I think her art is pretty incredible – both personal and political, giving social commentary and unique insights into current events.
I just got her most recent email newsletter and learned that she will be at the same show Matt Sesow will be at this evening. Here’s what she wrote:
“DC Greenheart Exhibit”: is an exhibition of new paintings, drawings, and photographs by 19 local artists priced at $500 or less. Art will showcase environmental awareness with a touch of Valentines Day inspiration. 10% of all sale proceeds will benefit www.earthecho.org in support of saving our planet.
The opening night party is free to attend but please RSVP to:
8th Floor Penthouse
1125 11th st. NW
Washington DC 20001
Go check out her art and Matt’s, contribute to a worthy cause and have a great time. Remember – tell them the friendly folks at Metroblogging DC sent you.
