Art League Artists at Artomatic

Painter Dale McGrath, caught up in the spirit of St. Patrick's day, is among the League artists exhibiting at Artomatic.

After a seven-year absence, Artomatic, the peripatetic DMV art festival, returned to D.C. this past March. There’s a lot to see in this sprawling show which takes up eight floors of space in an empty Foggy Bottom office building. A big part of what makes Artomatic unique is that it is not a curated, so there is an wide array of creative expression, from traditional fine art to conceptual installations, on view.

We are thrilled to see works by several of our artists and faculty in Artomatic! Here is a roundup of who they are and what they are exhibiting. We encourage you to see for yourself before it closes this Sunday, April 28.

 

Pattee Hipschen at her  solo Artomatic gallery.

Pattee Hipschen is showing large and small artworks inside a former office that she, like some of the other participating artists, transformed into a solo gallery. Find her on the second floor in Room #225.

Susan O’Neill is among several artists exhibiting in an expansive, open space on the third floor, which provides ample room for her large-scale Jazz series. She is on the third floor, Installation Space #336.

It was great to see works by Jeff Tackes at Artomatic, including the illuminating Newborn Nightmare that appeared in our recent Student/Faculty Show—and sold! He is on the eighth floor, Installation Space #831.

 

Colorful mixed media works by Jane Johnson are on view on the seventh floor, Room #7063.

You can’t miss Lisa Laohaphan’s bold and colorful geometric abstracts, on view on the fourth floor, Room #4010.

Oil paintings by Parisa Tirnaz  capture bundled bouquets of dried flowers. She used real ones as part of her studio decor. Find her on on the sixth floor in Room #6030.

Also in Room #6030 on the sixth floor, The Art League’s own Michael Price—aka The Wired Mike— is exhibiting his cool and clever assortment of wire art. He even got a mention in Daily Campello Art News,  where art critic Lenny Campello raved, “These are not only intelligently designed, some kinetic, works of art, but also work to fool the eye as paintings!”

 

Scissors are among the common items ingeniously depicted in Michael Price’s wire artwork.

Final weekend hours for Artomatic are Saturday, April 27, 12 p.m.– 12 a.m.; and Sunday, April 28, 12–9 p.m. It is located at 2100 M Street NW, Washington, D.C.
