Last week we went to Artomatic art exhibition in Washington D.C. Artomatic is the community-driven , all-volunteer 5-week art exhibition in D.C. , which draws all the local emerging as well as established artists together. Going on since 1999, this year’s Artomatic is featuring works of over 800 visual artists and 200 of musical, dance, theatric, and other performing artists. It’s being held in a 10-floor Capital Plaza I building at 1200 First Street NE.
Each one of the 8 floors is like an art gallery, but the fun thing is that you find different styles of art with almost every step – one space would have modern-style, surrealistic paintings, the other one would have photography, the next one would have junk art, and the next one would have something totally weird you won’t even know what to call it. The other 2 floors have live performances and the bar.
I did 5 floors of art only, and that was more than enough impressions and inspiration. It was great to find out that there are so many young artists in the area, with very interesting ideas and ways of expressing themselves. I took loads of photos and artist’s flyers to check their sites. Here are some of the photos of the art i found the most interesting for me:
