Matt Sesow Events Friday and Saturday

Local artist Matt Sesow has a few exciting events going on this weekend. If you are not familiar with Matt’s work, definitely go to his web site and get a feel for it. Much of his work is raw, like the texture of rough-cut wood, and full of emotion. Although at first his paintings may appear to be less carefully crafted than some other artists’ work, closer inspection shows that his hand is very deliberate, creating works that say something about society and his personal life.

So here is what Matt has in store for tonight:

This Friday night, I’ll be at the opening reception for the ‘greenheart’ exhibit here in DC. I found a mention of it on a blog website, from “the drop” website:
One night only, Lofts 11 presents “DC Greenheart Exhibit”, featuring works from 19 Artists… An exhibition of new painting, drawings, and photographs priced at $500 or less. Art will showcase Environmental Awareness with a touch of Valentines Day inspiration. 10% of all sale proceeds will benefit in support of saving our water planet. Opening reception with artists….
Date: Friday – February 1, 2008
Time: Reception: 7:00pm-10:00pm
Location: Lofts Eleven 8th floor Penthouse, 1125 11th Street, NW

And then for Saturday:

I’m going to host an open studio this SATURDAY (Feb. 2nd) from 12 noon until 6pm. I’ll have the usual bevy of refreshments and stacks of paintings for you to peruse. There are a few “31 Days in July” 2007 paintings left as well as a nice number of recent gems that beg to be seen.

No rsvp needed, just show up, bring friends. (1851 Columbia Rd, NW #603)
