Arts on Foot... again

Arts on Foot (primary event) :
Saturday, Sept. 12th 11am - 5pm

Metro: Gallery Pl-Chinatown

Arts on Foot is back and after 2 successful years there so far, I reapplied for selection this year and was accepted! I'll be located at booth #80 on F St. in front of the National Portrait Gallery, at the corner of F and 7th St., on Saturday only. Come early because I will be selling a limited number of drawing studies (for past paintings) and inexpensive prints.

Marking its 17th anniversary, The Washington Examiner’s ARTS ON FOOT sponsored by Wines of Argentina is one of Washington, DC’s most unique celebrations, and is considered by many to be the city’s premier outdoor festival. Spanning four city blocks, the event kicks off the Fall arts season and showcases the best that Downtown DC has to offer.
