On view  through February 22, 2013

After seeing JJ Cromer’s work in the pages of Raw Vision Magazine, Leesburg Virginia artist Steve Loya reached out to Cromer to begin a collaboration. Loya creates what he calls ‘Splotch monsters’ and mails them to JJ Cromer who then adds his signature ‘Asterisk’ people and collage elements. JJ Cromer and Steve Loya will show pieces from this collaboration with Splotch/Asterisk.

Proceeds from the sales of these works will go to benefit Art Enables.

Local artist Steve Loya will be hosting a make-your-own Splotch Monster workshop from 2-3PM during the reception. Participants have the option to draw on pre-made paint splotches made by Loya himself or paint some of their own with watercolor paints to draw on and take home with them.  Workshop with Steve Loya- Make your Splotch Monster is February 9 from 2-3 pm. The workshop is free, but please RSVP by February 6 by calling 202.554.9455 or emailing Beth Baldwin.

Art Enables’ Off-Rhode Studio Gallery is located at 2204 Rhode Island Ave NE
