PixTour for Fotoweek DC

PixTour for Fotoweek DC

Originally uploaded by HeatherMG

If you find yourself on U Street, or are looking for an off-beat place to check out some art, stop by Velvet Lounge to see my photos and, while you’re there, grab a beer and head upstairs for a show. Photos from my “Closure” series, along with a few from last year’s “Britishink” tattoo set, will be hanging on the walls at Velvet for a little over a week.

Also stop by the Warehouse Gallery to see a larger gathering of photos from local artists, and schedule a few nights out during the week to get dinner at these other locales listed below and view more of the PixTour.

And, don’t forget to make a list of all the Fotoweek exhibits and openings. Don’t miss this!

PixTour brings art to the people who are out and about. Take a walk, have a drink and a meal, and see the art of photography in Dupont, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, 14th Street, Anacostia and More. PixTour is an informal showing of photography on local walls and windows.

PixTour, a project of FotoWeek DC 2008, is showing the work of area photographers at 40 bars, clubs, restaurants, theaters, and shops around DC. The project was organized by Molly Ruppert and the Warehouse, with many photographers suggested by Ten Miles Square.

You can find Ten Miles Square curated shows at the following venues:

Big Bear Cafe — Cesar Lujan
Wonderland — Pat Padua
Red Rocks Pizza — Marie Kwak
Sticky Fingers — Parikha Solanki Mehta
DC9 — Jack Whitsitt and Paivi Solonan
Velvet Lounge — Angela Kleis
Nellie’s — James Calder

Warehouse is also featuring more PixTour at their gallery (with one photo from each photographer who volunteered for the project), along with an exhibit by Byron Peck, famed Washington muralist, with a reception on Friday, November 21, 6 to 10 p.m.
