Feeling insecure

 My “new” phone is saying this site is Not Secure. I do not know the implications or possible ramifications of that warning, but perhaps you should not post anything important in a comment. My email address is trepan then the numeral eight at y a h o o  (period) calm.

Meet the Artist

Having cut short my Meet the Artists time yesterday (due to apparently being a delicate flower, grrr), I am TENTATIVELY planning to be there for the April 13 event. I am also going to be browsing in the building Sat. 4/20, so ping me if you would like to connect!

Artomatic Reopens!

Artomatic will (re)open tonight at 6 p.m., barring any further bureaucratic snarls, logistical mishaps, or krakens in the plumbing!

(orig. post:  Oh hey! Please note that as of Wed. 3/13/24, Artomatic is temporarily closed. (They just need a new/different temporary certificate of occupancy!) I will update here when I know more; hopefully we will be back soon!)

This spring we are very lucky to have a new Artomatic for the first time since 2017, and it will be right downtown on the Red Line: 2100 M St. NW. Opening night is Friday, March 8th. My space is on the 8th floor between the bar and the lounge.

This will be my fourth time showing work at Artomatic (sixth, if you count two tiny shows at National Airport). Here is a little retrospective of my and Dan's Artomatic work.
