"The Critiqued" opening reception and 1 year anniversary party!

The Critiqued
An invitational exhibit of artists who have participated in The Critique, as quasi monthly series produced by Otis Street Arts Project

On Saturday April 2, Otis Street Arts Project, a studio center and gallery in the Gateway Arts District of Mount Rainier, MD,  will be celebrating their one year anniversary with a special exhibit and afterparty. 

The evening will begin with a reception for the opening of The Critiqued, an exhibittion of 13 artists who have participated in The Critique, a quasi-monthly series produced by Otis Street Arts Project. The Critique is a formal critical discussion of invited artists led by a DC area arts professional. Guest critics have included F. Lennox Campello, Adah Rose Bitterbaum, Michael O’Sullivan and Dr. Claudia Rousseau. For this exhibit, the Artists will each be showing one piece each that reflects the conversations pertaining to their works. This special exhibit illustrates the growing arts community and inclusiveness of the Gateway Arts District and Otis Street Arts Project’s community building. 

The night will continue with a dance party featuring DJ New spinning an ecletic mix from Go-Go to 
New Orleans Brass Bands to House grooves.

Founded in Spring of 2015, they have opened their doors to tour groups, student groups, bands, DJ’s, art critics, gallarists, artists, art collectors, and the general public. Their resident artists have exhibited in international exhibits, national art fairs in Chicago, Miami, and New York, and widely in DC area galleries and art centers. For their one year anniversary, they are once again throwing open their doors to the public for a fantastic evening of Visual Art, Performance Art, and Music.
