About the Artist
Gail Vollrath, a Chicago native, has been living and working in DC since 2001. Gail uses mixed media such as china marker, oil bar and oil based paint pens along with oil paint on canvas, paper or aluminum.
Typical themes in her work are things that represent the day – current affairs, conversations and events as well as isolation and marginalization. Gail’s mark making and color choices are usually intuitive. The images are sometimes derived from clip art or actual objects.
Vollrath recently showed her work at Gallery Plan B and was interviewed by The Hill Rag’s Jim Magner. Her interview can be read here.
About the Property
Completely stripped down to the studs, this stunning 2 bedroom, 2.5 Bath renovation is in the heart of the best that the Hill has to offer. Walk to Eastern Market, Barracks row and the new Yards waterfront park.
On the outside, the developer has restored the charming historic clapboard facade with the utmost care and respect for historic preservation. On the inside, the home is spacious, open and modern featuring top of the line twenty-first century amenities. The white marble counter and stainless steel appliance kitchen opens out onto a wide breezeway and a large flagstone terrace.
While you certainly won’t need a car at this location, an automated garage still door opens onto a large parking space which can double as a second outdoor living area. Upstairs, two generous sized bedrooms with finished closet space capture light on two sides. Each bedroom has its own remodeled bathroom featuring subway tile marble with glass tile accents. The luxurious master bathroom includes three different shower heads.
