A sampling of Jimbot’s exhibition will be on exhibit as well as select pieces from the Art Whino’s extensive artist collaboration.
As a part of Americans for the Arts Creative Conversations initiative, Art Whino will be hosting a panel discussion on the validity of current art trends within the larger realm of fine art. Panelists will debate whether or not Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist art carry the same amount of cultural significance and demand the same respect as more traditional forms of contemporary art. Come check out our new space in Georgetown, above the Adidas store and take part in this lively conversation.
An informational wine tasting will be provided by WineShop at Home
for guests prior to the panel discussion. Join us to sample and learn about some excellent selections from the Napa Valley area.

This is my world, and this is how I show it to people. Usually it is
quite fun here.... but it can be quite strange as well. The creatures that inhabit my work are the same creatures that inhabit my mind. Robots dance across the landscapes holding hands with people who are not quite sane, while small, strange, creatures run in and out of the scenery. My mind is a story that needs to be told! Mostly my influence comes from my childhood, and the fears that followed me as I grew up. Cartoons, comics, fun, insecurities, happiness and anger all intermingle in my work. I bring all of this together in paintings, drawings and mixed media. My work usually deals with different emotions and feelings: happiness, sadness, curiosity, anger, etc, but more than anything, I like to have fun with my imagery. Usually though, the interpretation of my work is left up to the viewer, letting them establish their own ideas of my world, much like we are left to interpret the real world on our own.
