Discussion: Friday, July 27, 2018 at 7 p.m..
East City Art presents the inaugural discussion of CONFLUENCE: Two River One City at Cheryl Edwards’ Studios located on the Brookland Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market.
East City Art, DC’s visual arts publication of record, published its first annual anthology of critical writing titled CONFLUENCE: Two Rivers One City. The 20 essays of the anthology present East City Art’s most compelling writing of 2017 while documenting the DC region’s strongest influences on regional visual arts culture that same year.
The title of the anthology alludes to the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia rivers which come together to form the region affectionately known as the “DMV” (DC, Maryland and Virginia).
CONFLUENCE offers insight into DC’s art world with in-depth critical writing and full color photographs of work by local, national and international artists displayed at regional galleries, museums and art spaces.
“The dedication of the East City Art writing staff to publish serious art criticism has never been stronger. Articles with ample discussion make ECA an alternative to the condensed and often superficial reviews offered elsewhere of gallery exhibits,” says Editor-at-Large Claudia Rousseau, Ph.D..
A presentation of the publication by East City Art Editor-in-Chief Phil Hutinet will take place a Cheryl Edwards’ Studio on Friday, July 27, 2018 at 7 p.m. Edwards’ studio is located at Studio #9, 716 Monroe Street NE, Washington DC, 20017 in the Brookland Arts Walk just steps away from the Brookland Metro Station. The public session is free and open to the public.
