Local artists Lauren Jeffords, Jared Lauer, and Alden Leonard will have a group show at Tabula Rasa on Capitol Hill this weekend.

The works will be on display to the public from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23. The pieces in the show incorporate classic, nostalgic summertime themes.

The three artists have been planning the show since January, and approached Tabula Rasa in March about hosting the show. “We were impressed by the space and [owner Amanda Clarke’s] flexibility.”

Clarke was enthusiastic about the show and the three artists’ collaborations. “I thought it was a great idea [for them] to come together as young artists.” Clarke added the she welcomes other local artists to approach her to use Tabula Rasa as a potential venue for their art.

Tabula Rasa, an event and meeting space that opened in May 2012, hosts many art openings in addition to pop-ups, corporate events, and private parties. The venue also recently started a partnership with ArtSee to display the works of young and emerging artists in the space for two weeks out of every month.

The Details:

  • What: Art Open House
  • When: Saturday, June 22, 11:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.; Sunday June 23, 11:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m
  • Where: Tabula Rasa, 731 8th Street SE, Washington, DC 20003
