G40 Art Summit Takes Over DC

A little over a week ago, our favorite local gallery Art Whino opened their second annual G40 Art Summit gallery show in DC…and it was incredible!

The gallery and its artists took over an entire 25,000 square foot building downtown to showcase art on all four floors. There was so much to see, we spent a lot of time doubling back through rooms just to make sure we didn’t miss anything!

Fortunately, vitaminwater® was one of the sponsors…which meant free drinks to keep us hydrated and energized!

If you’re in the neighborhood and want to check out the exhibit before it closes on June 17th, here are all the details:

2213-2217 14th Street NW (the corner of 14th and W NW)
Washington, DC

Exhibit Schedule:
Show exhibit runs May 19th - June 17th, 2011
Open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 7pm – 12am
Saturday: 12pm – 2am
Sunday: 12pm – 6pm
Monday: Closed

Art imitating life…guppy style

I love cats and skate deck art…so it’s only natural that I would LOVE this ‘Lazer Cats’ skate deck by Alex Chiu

Detail of my favorite ‘Lazer Cat’

I ran into my friend Kim at the show, who showed off her new TOMS…bought after reading this post, I was so excited!!

A wall featuring art by LECKOmio, a German artist whose pieces we have started to collect over the past few years!

Incredible custom wood skate decks – I wanted them sooo bad!

An amazing hand-cut paper art installation by Tennessee artist Charles Clary

The up-close detail was unbelievable!

My one and only purchase of the night was a captivating silkscreen by one of Art Whino’s resident artists, Brent Houzenga!

This composition made me laugh

Greatest lounge idea ever…thanks to livingsocial!

The show was incredible – it had everything from custom gas tanks…

to custom sneakers…

to customized DIY Dunny’s – a little something for everybody!
