Georgetown ARTS 2013 Opens February 7 at House of Sweden
The 4th annual Georgetown ARTS show will showcase talents of Georgetown's artists at House of Sweden, February 7-10. The opening reception is Thursday evening, February 7 from 6 until 9pm at House of Sweden, 2900 K Street NW. Following Thursday's opening reception, the show will be open Friday, February 8 through Sunday, February 10 from 11am to 5pm. The show is open to the public.
The event will feature artwork by local Georgetown residents and artists who have studios in Georgetown. Media will include oil and watercolor paintings, prints, sculpture and photography. Most works will be for sale, with a few on loan from private collections. All art will be suitable for viewing by adults and families with children.
The show also will feature a special "Saturday Salon" on February 9 at 2 pm, when several artists will discuss their work, inspiration and methods, in addition to a curated walk-through of artwork on Sunday, February 10 at 2 pm hosted by Jennie Buhler.
House of Sweden, itself a noteworthy destination for beautiful contemporary architectural design and Potomac river views, fronts on the water with footpaths to Georgetown's restaurants, parks, shops, theaters and galleries. Opened in 2006, it is home to the Embassies of Sweden and Iceland, and includes an event center and two floors of corporate office suites.
Prior shows have garnered large and lively interest. According to The Georgetowner, the inaugural show "was packed" and offered Georgetown's "gentler contributions to the world of art" which are often eclipsed by its "political locus."
All are invited to celebrate and view various types of art media and creativity of local artists at House of Sweden.
