Art is everywhere. This week, the DC-based local arts company ArtSee is hosting two artist showcases in Borderstan.

On Wednesday, August 8, join ArtSee for its monthly artist happy hour series at Local 16 (1602 U Street NW). From 6 until 8 pm, ArtSee will display the latest works from Ariel Messeca, a local painter and illustrator.

This summer, ArtSee and Local 16 are collaborating on these happy hours to increase the exposure of local artists and showcase their art to new audiences. Messeca is the third artist to be featured in the Local 16 happy hour series.

On Thursday, August 9, ArtSee will feature the work of Lindz Routt at One Lounge (1606 20th Street NW) for Ladies DC. Routt’s paintings, which focus on “time capsules of intimacy,” will be on display from 6 until 8 pm.

Both events are free (cash bar available) and open to the public. For more information, visit ArtSee’s website.
