Saturday, August 07, 2010


"German-based stencilist, LECKOmio debuts his US first solo show, Its Not a Trick. His exhibition looks at the relationship of street art within its subcultural milieu.

Weekend Observation

Sunday, June 27, 2010


While working at the gallery this weekend, I decided to take note of how many times an audience member observed how 'refreshing' our space is. It's now Sunday, and I've already lost count as to how many times Art Whino has been associated with 'refreshing,' 'a breath of fresh air,' or simply 'chill.' I may be a new face around here, but I think that has been the general consensus since Art Whino's opening almost three years ago. Our space is dynamic, and filled with a wicked inventory of work that's appreciated en masse by so many different people. Everyone that comes to visit has an interesting story to tell as to what art pieces they enjoy, where they come from, and what work they do themselves, et al. It's so nice to take in all the positivity, and see how the space radiates with good vibes as people get engaged with what they're seeing.

Sticking with the good ju-ju motif; what do you appreciate about Art Whino?

Upcoming, so break out those calendars!

Friday, June 18, 2010
In anticipation for the coming summer months, Art Whino is gearing up for a ton of exciting events! June 26th, we're traveling to Austin in collaboration with Seventy Seven Gallery to host Personality Instantly: The Art of Nick Morris, whose work "calls to mind a time of artistic girl-next-door pin ups and sleek muscle cars, with a tinge of sci-fi." So if you happen to be strolling the streets of Austin, TX or looking for an excuse for a weekend excursion, you should stop in and check out what's hanging. 

We've also partnered up with Mie N Yu restaurant in Georgetown to accentuate our fabulous opening nights! We'll be setting up for a special INDULGE event on July 9th, to feature a variety of Mie N Yu specialties, a bevy of refreshments, live music, good friends, and fine art; what else do you need in life...ehh? 

Also in July, we'll be hosting Tatiana Suarez's solo show featuring her Malagueta series. I've been honored with the opportunity to interview Ms. Tatiana, in collaboration with RVA Magazine, prior to her opening on the 19th; so I will be sure to post our Q & A session as soon as it goes down! In the future, I'd like to interview all of our opening artists featuring a few audience generated questions, if possible. We love seeing our followers getting involved with what we do, so I definitely look forward to seeing your curiosities come through via posted comments!

In August, Art Whino will be in Georgetown to set up the big top for our Urban Carnivale show. We're currently on the hunt for side show performers to feature two levels of freakshow antics, including a trifecta of exhibiting artists, mingled with tarot card readings, street performers, and other strange and fascinating performances. It's going to be a blast, and if you know us well enough--we can throw a party! You're not going to want to miss this!

As you can see, we've got quite the summer line-up! And we're adding even more as we go, so keep checking back a time or two! If any of our readers have any cool events on their itinerary we'd love to hear about them, as well as any other neat stuff you happen to find around D.C., and elsewhere! So hit us up with some links, comments, shout-outs, pictures of you at our events, etc. etc. We'd love to hear from you guys!
