Fabiano Amin is a Brazilian born, D.C. transplant (represented by Zenith Gallery) who’s been actively working the local art scene for the past couple of years.  The work at Paolo’s is an exploration of texture, color, rich layers and shape and ability to create a strong series of landscapes. “I let the power of colors in my work speak for itself,” says Fabiano Amin. 

Complement Amin’s work is the vibrant painting by M. Jane Johnson, a native Floridian, now living and working in the Washington, D.C. area. Johnson is a very physical painter who works the canvas by pouring, throwing and dripping paint and boldly scribbling lines. 

Paolo’s exhibits local art on a quarterly basis. Fabiano Amin, in addition to being the featured artist this fall, is also the coordinator of the restaurants artistic efforts. He enjoys finding new artists to exhibit and display 

For more information on the show or to schedule an interview with an artist or Paolo’s, contact media@artseedc.com.

The 2013 Forbes Travel Guide list of five-star hotels (with more than double the number of top hotels it has given the highest rating in China and Singapore) includes only one in Washington, DC, Georgetown's Four Seasons Hotel Washington DC.

Aside from fabulous service, the hotel offers a “From Seed to Tree” package which includes (in addition to a welcome amenity, parking, and at least two nights' accommodations) $50 that goes to The SEED School of Washington, D.C.—the country’s first urban public boarding school—and guests have the option to donate directly to the school, as well.
