ArtSee is collaboratiing with Local 16 to showcase artists beginning June 6th from 6:00-8:00 pm.

On the second Wednesday of each month, a local artist has the opportunity to feature their work in a pop-up exhibition during happy hour. Similar to the ‘Sundays with ArtSee program,’ the goal of these happy hours is to increase the exposure of local artists and showcase their work to new audiences.

Local 16 has been involved in support the D.C. arts community for many years and hosts their own collective to give artists a chance to display their work on the walls of their establishment.

The first local talent to be featured in this series is Garth Fry. Fry is a mixed- media artist based in Arlington, Virginia whose work has been exhibited throughout the greater DC area.  Through his continual experimentation with various printmaking techniques, Fry has developed a more sculptural means of capturing his imagery. He uses coiled paper and glue to create familiar patterns and forms that survey the psychology of isolation. He accredits his current body of work to his extensive education and various gallery experiences.

Local 16 is is at 1602 U Street, NW.
