November 15: Weekend Roundup

Before we officially start winding down the year and get into the holiday season, we have one exciting ArtSee weekend coming up! Here are a few things to keep you busy this weekend while the weather stays chilly...

FRIDAY 

Transformer 10th Annual Auction and Benefit Party

As we already mentioned, and chose our favorites for, Transformer will kick off our weekend with their annual auction party that fundraises for the small but mighty P Street gallery. With 200 artists bringing their best, brightest and most original pieces, it is an amazing opportunity to meet new collectors, artists and other arts enthusiasts. And a great excuse to look fancy and party on a Friday night! For more information and tickets click here

SATURDAY

MOVING ART: A Talk with George Hemphill It's hard to ignore the impact that George Hemphill and the artists he represents have had on the Washington DC art community. But how did he get to this point? On Saturday, November 16 at 10 AM, George Hemphill will share his perspective and journey of what it takes to be an art dealer. Don't miss it! Click here for more information.  

PJ Burns at The Dunes A good friend to ArtSee and a very talented emerging artist, Patrick "PJ" Burns will open his solo show at The Dunes for one night one. On Saturday from 5-8 pm, don't miss the chance to see home of his latest work (featured image above). He is a mixed media artist that creates work in a true pop art fashion with subjects that can be anything from abstract, to literal to almost comical. For more information visit his website here

CURIO at Heiner Contemporary To round out a successful 2013, Heiner will open their last show of the year CURIO, a group show featuring Christine Gray, Sue Johnson, Caitlin Teal Price, Olivia Rodriguez, Esther Ruiz and Julie Wolfe. Exploring and twisting the 16th and 17th century cabinets of curiosity, the exhibition explores why certain things are collected. Each artist will explore a different collection from a different perspective. To see what they put in the "cabinet", don't miss the opening Saturday from 6-8 pm, click here for more information.  

Bringing the Art in DC to You,
