Gallery members, are you looking for your work to reach a broader audience?

On May 3, we will be featuring 7 artworks created by Gallery members at our Art on the Rocks event. This is one of our most popular Art on… events, attracting people from all over the greater Washington D.C area.

The works can be any subject or media.  There is no theme related to the event. We are looking to showcase a variety of high quality artworks. The selected pieces will serve as the inspiration for cocktails created by local mixologists. Selected artists will get a complimentary ticket to the event .The pairings will compete for the coveted title of Art on the Rocks champion.

About the Juror

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Jennifer Axner received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and landed in the DC-area after receiving her MFA from American University in Italy and Washington DC. She supplemented her education with stints at the Rhode Island School of Design, the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, the École européene supérieure d’art de Bretagne-Quimper, and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, France. Jennifer is the first female Banknote Picture Engraver at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

 

Jennifer’s cocktail of choice is the Negroni, but she also harbors an earnest appreciation for the slightly less dignified Pickleback shot.

About Art on the Rocks
