Opening Reception: Thursday July 15 from 5:30pm-8:00pm


East City Art in conjunction with John C. Formant Real Estate, Simplicity Staging, CITY Gallery and Studio H present the first ever “Art House Open House” at 610 Independence Ave SE.  The public is invited to a happy hour Thursday July 15 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm to browse the work of local artists and view the renovated home.

As native Washingtonians, we can assure you that the most talked about topic in Washington has never been politics- it has always been real estate!  Art House Open House gives real estate hounds and art lovers the opportunity to preview DC’s hottest real estate while viewing the work of local artists.  See what an ecclectic mix of art from traditional oil portraiture to street art looks like when installed collectively in a home.

The show will feature the work of local artists including Tim Conlon, Ellen Cornett, Rod Glover, Martha Huizenga, Katherine Mann, Anne Oman and Sarah Thibodeaux.  In addition, Studio H is proud to present the work of Dino Almaguer who produces one of a kind furniture from recycled and environmentally responsible materials.

610 Independence Avenue SE is a home that has been stripped to the studs and completely renovated inside and out with the highest end finishes.  The three bedroom, three and a half bathroom home features living spaces on three finished levels, a two story deck and a beautiful flagstone patio.  The Master bedroom suite includes a massive walk-in closet, sit-in shower and overlooks beautiful Brown’s court, one of Capitol Hill’s treasured alleys.
