Art Inspires More Art

At the conclusion of Arts in Foggy Bottom 2014, local artists participated in a “Plein (open-air) Art Paint Out” using the sculptures in the exhibition as inspiration for their paintings. At the end of the painting session, a wine and cheese reception was held at the Watergate Gallery where the artists exhibited their work. The turn out was fantastic and a great time was had by all.
