Cherry Blast March 29, 2014

Last Spring, I spent some quality time shooting the Cherry Blossoms. It is a wonderful happy accident that Art Whino is hosting Cherry Blast at Blind Whino, the stunning painted church in Southwest, DC.

I am showing large artist prints (24”x 30”) and smaller photo transfers on wood (3.5”x 3.5” and 2”x 2” w/magnets), It was easy to find inspiration down on the tidal basin, and the cherry blossoms quickly became my muse. Each blossom declared the death of spring as it hung defiantly bathed in golden sunlight.

Cherry Blast delivers cherry blossom inspired art, 3 bands, 3 DJ’s and a beautiful night. Flyer info:

The sixth annual Cherry Blast: Art + Music Dance Party is Saturday, March 29 from 7:00pm-midnight at BLIND WHINO: SW Arts Club, a dedicated art space in Southwest Washington, DC (734 1st Street, SW). Blind Whino, formerly a church, is now a contemporary dedicated art space - the perfect setting for this multimedia, multi-sensory event. The National Cherry Blossom Festival partners with Art Whino for visual programming throughout the night. Art Whino curates a massive group art show featuring over 300 cherry blossom-inspired pieces, all available for purchase. A special Washington Project for the Arts exhibit showcases work inspired by the Festival. The microWave projectcurates 3-D art installations artists throughout the space. Performance artists, bands, and DJs keep the party going into the night.

Saturday, Sept 17th, from 8-11pm, Tim Conlon’s Derailed 2 @artwhinoDerailed 2, a solo exhibition featuring aerosol artist Tim Conlon. Derailed 2 pays homage to the artist’s almost twenty-year love affair with freight train graffiti art. In this new exhibition, Conlon will showcase a series of new works including life-size aerosol paintings of aged freight cars; weathered model trains featuring scaled-to-size graffiti in the bright colors and iconic characters for which Conlon is best known; and contemporary photographs of trains and their environs. About Derailed 2 Conlon says, “I discovered freight train graffiti as a college kid in Baltimore just as the scene was emerging. As one of the biggest port cities on the East Coast, commercial cargo regularly arrived on large ships in Baltimore Harbor and was transferred to freight trains headed toward big cities like Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Train cars were everywhere and as an art student with in interest in graffiti, it was easy to get hooked on this revolving art gallery.”Saturday, Sept 17th, from 8-11pmLocation:Art Whino Gallery 120 American WayNational Harbor, MD 20745 Reception begins at 8pmDJ RIP on the turntables with Old School Hip Hop ClassicsShow end date: October 16thThe event is FREE and open to the public.

DJ Set by Tim Jackson EPK
tim jacksonTim Jackson began dj’ing with his first set of Technics 1200′s over 20 years ago. Having residencies in nightclubs in the Mid-West, DC and VA, he brings experience with many genres and crowds, House music being his main focus. From different styles of House to Funky Breaks and Vocal Drum and Bass, classic club tracks and hip hop, Tim is versatile, experienced and has a keen ear for great music.



Musical Performance by FUTURE
futureThe band name “Future” was derived from a celebratory toast to the completion of their first song, “Carpe Diem” – in which the band unexpectedly cheered “to the future!”  They paused for moment, and laughed together at the realization that they had finally discovered their long awaited band name.  With over fifteen years of combined professional music experience Future uniquely delivers an experimentation of sound utilizing elements of Hip Hop, Reggae, Electronica, and Rock Fusion.  From outdoor festivals and underground clubs to premier music venues and sound-stages Future is cultivating a dedicated following of listeners who are as diverse as the band itself.


Musical Performance by Soul Patch
House-of-Soul-Cover-1000px2Soul Patch wants you to unplug your laptop and connect with people again – this time, on the dance floor.  In an age when parties are started by pressing “play” on a MacBook, and partygoers are more often glued to their smartphones than to each other, Soul Patch is remixing the concept of a dance party. Soul Patch pulsates music like a DJ would – but with real instruments – to create a personal and intimate approach to making a crowd sweat. It’s the kind of music you’d hear at 2:00 a.m. at a loft party, at the U Street Music Hall or a Deep Sugar party in Baltimore. The band’s draws on influences like Jamiroquai, Incognito and DJ Louis Vega, fusing house, funk and soul into groovy, uplifting jams.


Musical Performance by Batala
batalaBatala in Washington, D.C. is part of a larger Batala family created in 1997 by Giba Gonçalves. Born and raised in Salvador, Bahia in Brazil, Giba was living in Paris when he first had the idea for the band. Open to anyone with an interest in learning the samba-reggae beat, the band started off with 60 people.  From Paris it spread to other cities in France, Belgium and the United Kingdom. In 2003, the band finally made its way back to its origins, brought to Brazil by Paulo Garcia, also the founder of the Portsmouth Batala. Composer and musical director, Giba enlisted the help of friends from the bands and from Salvador in order to create the visual identity of the band. The instruments and clothings are all manufactured in Salvador, Bahia, where the band has a social program that gives jobs to many families. From there they are shipped to the bands around the world.  In 2007, the newest branch of the Batala band was created in Washington, DC, expanding the reach of the band’s music to the United States. Today, the band has over 300 percussionists around the world.



Musical Performance by Marcatu de Baque Virado
MaracatuMaracatu de Baque Virado is an Afro-Brazilian percussive tradition from the north-east of Brazil.
Maracatu Baque do Mangue runs ongoing workshops in Afro-Brazilian rhythms, focusing on Maracatu de Baque Virado, a style of percussion from Recife, Brasil. In these workshops, students learn the technique and language of five instruments, work on rhythm and movement, and learn to sing while playing an instrument.

The Yards Park

waterfront_2Like no other park in the region, The Yards Park is a new regional waterfront destination, offering a whole new way for local residents to enjoy the outdoors and the river.  The 5.5 acre park—the size of about four football fields—includes a ¼ mile long boardwalk along the water and was designed as a series of unique  “outdoor rooms”  to provide a variety of experiences from the great lawn to the sculptural pedestrian bridge, the waterfall/canal basin to the overlook and riverfront gardens. The Yards Park was built through a public/private partnership between the federal General Services Administration, the District of Columbia, and Forest City Washington and is managed and programmed by the Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District.  Information about the Yards Park can be found atwww.capitolriverfront.org

NW Washington DC

Thursday is a concert that is already at capacity, hope to see you there… BUT the grand opening for G40 (which you can find out a whole lot about below) is Friday, May 20, 2011 6-9 PM… 

I did something new for me, built a wall out of oak and wheat pasted a huge photo, like really big. I hope you make it through to see my wall. The image touches on so many things from my life AND it was a happy accident, I was trying to shoot something else totally different when it happened. The image found me.

Over 200 artists are showing, I think its all the Vitamin Water you can drink, and there’s performances, and classes and all kinds of activities to stimulate your brain mostly for free. No brainer for me. 

FB Link for the in house AFTERPARTY.

Up through June 17, 2001 so if you are busy, there’s time, breathe…

May 19th, the return of G40

main image 4Art Whino returns in 2011 for the second edition of G40. The first G40 art summit in 2010 compounded artistically explosive cultures from all over the world and brought them to the DC metro area. By bringing all of these cultures from throughout the world to one place it allowed the visitor to be fully immersed in over 2000 works by 500 artists organized by floors corresponding to their cultural hubs.
 
This year G40 explores not cultures but the genres which are on the forefront of creative transitions and growing in large scale with hundreds of thousands of fans throughout the world. Some of these genres include Customized collectibles, Skateboard Art, Stencil, Wheat Paste and 3D Interventions.

The G40 Art Summit is a unprecedented experience in the art world with its scale and caliber of artists from around the world. This year the summit comes to the city next to the U street corridor taking over an entire 25,000 sqft building and showcasing art on all of it 4 floors.  From over twenty artists showcasing 16’ Murals to traditionally displayed artwork the summit will definitely have sensory overload requiring multiple trips to take in all the treats for the eyes.
