Getting Ready for Artomatic 2017

Panaramic View of my Space at Artomatic

I've been spending the last week getting my space ready for Artomatic. In case you don't know what Artomatic is, it's DC phenomena that happens once a year (sometimes every other year).  Artists take over an empty building and fill it with art.  This year it's in Crystal City at 1800 S. Bell St. in Arlington.  There are hundreds of artists participating.  They also have music, bars, workshops, and other creative events.  It opens Friday March 24 and goes through Sunday May 6.

 My space is on the 9th floor.   I hope you will stop by and see it.  I will be there opening night March 24.  There are also 2 dates for "Meet the Artists night" and I will be there for those, Saturday, April 8th and Saturday April 29. There is free parking in the garage  on 20th St. in Crystal City.  Parking is free after 4 pm on the weekdays and free all day on Saturdays and Sundays.

Plan to come sometime during the end of March , all of April and 1st week in May.  Let me know you are coming and I'll meet you there.

Cuba: Anyone want to join me?

The next trip I'm organizing is a trip to Cuba.  I'm looking for people who want to experience Cuba before the tourist invasion happens.    Presently, American who want to tour Cuba must do it as a cultural exchange.  Although there is some tourism there, things haven't been modernized and the country looks like it is stuck in the 1950's.  This could change if relations with Cuba improve between the United States and Cuba.  Therefore, this IS the time to go to see it the way it's been for the past 60 years.  It's an all inclusive trip with round-trip airfare, 6 nights in a hotel, all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), tour director and ground transportation.  It should be a blast.

The trip is for April 2018 (one year away) which gives you time to plan and save for this trip. The cost is $4,000 which remember includes airfare, too.

If you are interested, email me and I'll send you the brochure that covers everything about the trip. Space is limited so sign up to reserve your spot. You can reserve your spot for $99.
