ARTOMATIC
March 17, 2010

I first heard about Artomatic from a friend on Facebook. I was later encouraged by a few other artists to apply to the show, which I was told was the biggest art show in Washington DC. This opportunity came at the perfect time because I had just finished a series of paintings of my two friends Alison and Marjorie, who are identical twins. The three paintings, which were painted in a realist style, portrayed these two young women nude with their arm or legs intwined, emphasizing their sensuality. Though I considered this series to be an artistic breakthrough, I had no venue to show these paintings. Participating in Artomatic, not only gave me the opportunity to show my work, it also allowed me to meet other interesting artists as well. One of these artists introduced me to the owner of MOCA DC Gallery in Georgetown. Since then I have exhibited my work in six shows at that gallery. Participating in Artomatic was an amazing experience! I would gladly encourage all artists in the Washington DC area to become part of this wonderful event!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that it allowed me to exhibit my recent artwork as well as introduced me to a variety of local artists. I also found out about a gallery through one of the other artists. I have exhibited my paintings in six shows at that gallery since then.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage more collectors to buy art from there.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I love to see so many different types of art and artists, and everybody was very friendly and encouraging.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very nice, motivated people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have an even bigger building with even more artists.

Ways to make it better...

I had sold some of my paintings.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

selling the artwork.
