ArtSee will be taking over the Tabula Rasa space on 8th St SE to showcase the work of Piper Grosswendt. The exhibition will be a 3 week long show, running through May 22, 2013. ArtSee is partnering with Tabula Rasa to bring local emerging artists in to their modern, flexible space in Eastern Market. Tabula Rasa is a new event space and meeting place located in the heart of 8th St NE. The unique space lends itself perfectly to a non-traditional gallery. The first artist chosen is Piper Grosswendt, a mixed media visual artist.

Grosswendt is a painter living and working in Washington, DC. She earned two bachelor of art degrees from Bowdoin College in May 2011, one in English and the other in Visual Arts. Her current work is focused on investigations into color, gesture, and visual perception. With second-hand linens as her primary surface, the formal elements of her paintings take on connotations of sleep, dreams, and intimacy and suggest maps, charts, and diagrams. The work she will show at Tabula Rasa will further support these themes and show some of her lateset pieces.

ArtSee and Tabula Rasa hope to further support this mission to bring new, emerging, artists to the space on a regular basis. In addition to the opening reception, ArtSee will be hosting open hours to visit with the space and tour the exhibition. This partnership further support ArtSee’s mission to allow art enthusiasts to discover, exchange and promote emerging work.

Tabula Rasa is located at 731 8th St SE. Visit their website at thetabularasa.com or visit ArtSee at artseedc.com.
