It’s that time of the season again for the Fall Open Studios hosted by the Mid City Artists. This is a great opportunity to support local art and visit various artists in their own studios.
Here at Vastu we have artists Colin Winterbottom and Brian Petro. You can visit their studios (located in our lower showroom) from 12pm to 6:30pm on Saturday, October 13th and 12pm to 4:30pm on Sunday, October 14th.
Vastu will be open on Saturday, October 13th from 11am-7pm and Sunday, October 14th from 12pm-5pm.
A press release recently went out about this fun event held twice a year:
“Mark your calendars for the weekend of May 19 and 20 when twenty-one artists who are part of the “Mid City Artists” collaborative, will open their studio doors as part of The Mid City Artists Spring Open Studios Tour. This bi-annual event in DC’s “Mid-City” – in and around the Dupont Circle and Logan Circle neighborhoods – offers a special opportunity for art-lovers to take a peek into the artists’ creative process, connect personally with artists and learn more about how and where they make art, and purchase art as well. The participating artists represent a great diversity of work, including drawings, sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs and mixed media.”
Here at Vastu, we’re pleased to house studios for Mid City Artists Brian Petro and Colin Winterbottom, the former of which has a show currently hanging in our showroom.
So come out this weekend, explore the neighborhood and meet and support some local artists!
Vastu will be open on Saturday, May 19th from 11am-7pm and Sunday, May 20th from 12pm-5pm.
