May Membership Meeting to Feature Art for the Emerging Collector and Councilmember Evans

Please join us on Wednesday, May 13, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Washington Plaza Hotel, 11 Thomas Circle NW, for the monthly LCCA membership meeting.

We’re pleased to offer an exciting program on “Art Collecting 101: Advice for the Emerging Collector,”featuring local art rock stars Philippa P.B. Hughes, founder and president of the Pink Line Project; Veronica Jackson, co-founder and senior exhibit designer for Jackson Brady Design Group; and Victoria Reis, executive director of Transformer, Logan Circle’s exclusive not-for-profit gallery devoted to supporting emerging artists and their work.

The conversation will be about getting started collecting decent art on a budget, strategies for identifying galleries and other venues that show good work for reasonable prices, opportunities to learn more about art and art collecting, and getting connected with the local art scene.

Note to established collectors: Please come! We want to hear your stories about how you got started collecting art.

Preceding the program we will welcome D.C. Council Member Jack Evans, hold a special election to fill two vacant LCCA Board slots, and hear about a new Logan Circle “Heritage Trail” project. We have three excellent candidates and long-time residents who have expressed interest in a board position–Fay Arrington, Elsayed Mansour, and Mark Randolph, so we hope you will come show your support.
