Through October 27th, Paolo’s Ristorante in Georgetown will showcase the work of two loal artists: Fabiano Amin and M. Jane Johnson. Paolo’s will open the doors to welcome guests of the artists and the public on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 from 6:00 – 8 :00 pm at the restaurant, 1303 Wisconsin Avenue.
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

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.
Elizabeth Morisette's work focuses on and consists of everyday objects. Utilizing items accumulated from many sources, tag sales, eBay, flea markets, these art works are whimsical in nature and composed of collections of unlikely objects such as plastic spiders, zippers and hair rollers. The artist's work is highly tactile, weaving layers of discarded pieces and parts into repurposed tapestries and forms of an anthropogenic nature. With a nod to Surrealism and Dada, a wink in the direction of recycling and a wicked sense of humor, Morisette transforms the commonplace into arresting creations far removed from their ordinary purpose.
The wall and pedestal mounted forms are animated, clever and delightfully intricate. Recently, Elizabeth Morisette recieved a Masters Degree in Community Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. During the program she was the Artist in Residence at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Baltimore. Now living in Fort Collins, CO, Morisette continues to work with the community through intergenerational arts projects. Currently, Morisette is working on Community Arts Projects with the Arts Incubator of the Rockies.
Opening reception: Friday, July 12, 2013 - 6:00 pm
