True to its name, U Street’s Local 16 is a neighborhood restaurant focused on sourcing from, and serving, the local community. And this coming Wednesday is no different… Only, instead of local food, Local 16 will showcase local art.

On June 6, join Local 16 and ArtSeeDC, a District-based business that promotes local artists, for a happy hour to celebrate the work of DC artist, Garth Fry. The happy hour for Garth Fry is from 6 to 8 pm. For more information, visit the ArtSeeDC website.

Fry has exhibited in several locations and galleries throughout the greater DC area. Through his continual experimentation with various printmaking techniques, Fry recently developed a more sculptural means of capturing his imagery. He uses coiled paper and glue to create familiar patterns and forms that survey the psychology of isolation.

Fry’s Local 16 exhibit is the first in a new series of monthly artist showcases with ArtSeeDC and the U Street restaurant. Future artist happy hours are scheduled for July 11, August 8 and September 12.
