Exhibition Begins in March in DC’s Historic Logan Circle



Washington DC - This March, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty will open the doors of its newest office on 14th St NW to feature a local DC artist, Joel D’Orazio.  ArtSee, a local company devoted to promoting art and artists, assisted TTRSIR in selecting D’Orazio for the show.

The show, which opens on Friday, March 9, 2012, will hang on the walls of the Sotheby’s office for six weeks ending on April 14. 2012.  In addition to Joel D’Orazio’s vibrant works on panel, the reception will feature several of his sculptural pieces.  

The Sotheby’s brand has a long-standing relationship with the art world and with this initiative the Sotheby’s branch only hopes to broaden its ties to the local art scene.  As an avid supporter of the DC art scene, TTRSIR most recently sponsored the Corcoran’s NOW at Night this past fall.  They hope that this featured artist initiative will only strengthen that connection and provide new opportunities for local artists.

The featured artist, Joel D’Orazio, after working with architecture for 25 years made the switch to creating paintings on panel and mixed media sculptures.  Each work, void of any clear symbols or meaning, has a life of its’ own.  D’Orazio’s “work begins as an adventure and its identity becomes as valid and important as the next, with the medium playing a most important role in the discovery of solutions”.

ArtSee specializes in working with local artists to increase their exposure and reach their community in new ways.  Since its launch in July 2011, ArtSee aims to provide a forum for artists and those who appreciate art to discover news and events in the art world, exchange art, and to promote art using their services and expertise.
