With summer fast approaching, countless artists and art lovers are preparing for shows, festivals, exhibits and any other artsy thing you can imagine!

One of our favorite curators, Brian Petro, is no different. Brian has put together a show of six DC based artists entitled “Colorful Summer.” Each artist present is from a different country, which brings an eclectic mix of abstract, vibrant art.

The show will be held at Coldwell Banker’s Art17 Gallery and will include the works of Fabiano Amin, Margret Kroyer, Ana Elisa Benavent, Lesley Clarke, Judy Giuliani and Emily Lane. Each piece exudes the feeling of a Washington DC summer, and the recognizable heat, humidity and color.

Not only is Brian Petro a fantastic curator, he is also a well-known DC and international artist. He is familiar around the Dupont and Logan Circle areas, so it’s likely you’ve seen him around. As an artist and curator, Brian makes it his mission to showcase unique and talented local artists at unique storefronts such as Avenue Settlement and Vastu.

The exhibit opens Thursday June 27, 6 to 8 pm 1606 17th Street NW. What a perfect welcome to the beginning of summer!
