We have such sights to show you...

We are hung! Art (not pictured) by DJH & DXH is now happily installed at Artomatic and will be there till early May. Come visit.

Artomatic specs:

1800 South Bell is right across the street from the Crystal City metro station. The parking garage (free, evenings & weekends) can be entered from the other end of the block, at 20th Street.

The DH2 room is on the 9th floor (space 9609/9610):

- From the elevators, choose the wider doorway. Cut through that room and turn left; we are the first door on the left.

- From stairs/ restrooms / bar, walk along the outer hallway and peer into the interior rooms until you see the one painted cyan & slate, with the tantalizing black velvet curtain in the corner.

Guided tours by appointment. Dan may be in attendance for the April 8th "Meet the Artists" night; I need to stay home and watch "This Is The End." I expect we will both visit on 4/29, and we're sure to be roaming the building one last time on May 6th.

Friends and admirees of ours are exhibiting throughout the building -- floors 3 through 9, and there are bars (beer, wine, sodas, snacks) and performance stages as well. Be sure to check out the Opulent Tarnish Salon on the 8th floor! (8503/8504)

"The thing was generally complete, but the twisted crystalline bars lay unfinished upon the bench..." (H.G. Wells, The Time Machine)

DH2 are hard at work - we have chosen our room (9609/9610, ninth floor) in the new Artomatic building in Crystal City (1800 S. Bell Street, right across from the metro). We have sketched out the space on graph paper. We have financed the mixing of paints. (Now what's that sound from under the door? What the hell is he building in there?)

Dan's Instagram page is here and below is one of his fabulous aluminum prints. Come to Artomatic to check out the rest, and to find out what he's building in there....

I have a lot going on too, but just at the moment I'm nostalgic for my first Artomatic installation in Crystal City, so here is a picture of that (photo by filthyrusty). It's not going to look like this.

Come see us, and our stuff! Artomatic 2017 opens on March 24th and runs Wed-Sun till May 6th. (It is free to get in, and the parking garage is free on weekends. The show's hours are Wed/Thu 12-10, Fri/Sat 12-12, Sun 12-8.)
