Join us Wednesday evening from 5-8 for homegrown watercolor portraits with Elizabeth Graeber ILLUSTRATION!
July 12 – August 23, 2017
Transformer is proud to present homegrown – a 6-week summer exhibition showcasing local art, agriculture, and business and examining what it means to sustain a hyper-local lifestyle in DC.
Featuring a rotating selection of works from Transformer’s FlatFile, a program initiated in 2007 specifically to support and connect DC-based emerging visual artists, homegrown will showcase works from 40+ locally based artists in a variety of two-dimensional mediums including collage, photography, painting, drawing, silkscreens and prints, approximately 16x20" in size and smaller, priced under $500.
Acting as a catalyst for conversation surrounding what it means to make, eat, grow and shop locally, homegrown partners include: Up Top Acres — a network of rooftop farms across the DC metro area; Miss Pixies – a sustainable used and vintage furniture store; & Logan Hardware – a co-op neighborhood home improvement store. Transformer will once again re-invent our storefront exhibition space with these partners and DC artists, to create a vision of a DC ‘home’ space.
Exploring intersectional themes of sustainability and the local, homegrown programming will include performances, conversations, and workshops from artists, farmers and independent business-owners alike.
