Out of the Box!

THIS is what was in that gigantic box behind Jack... the large sculpture we showed you a sneak preview of a few weeks ago. It is now installed at Gables' Upper Rock development at Shady Grove and I-270 in Maryland.

Talk about a full service art firm! Principal Jack Devine used a forklift to unload the crate. With the help of two installers, they rigged it into place and lowered it down onto pre-set threaded rods on the footer.

A Monumental Mural

When Savills Studley moved into their new space on F Street in DC, they called on Artists Circle to help with a variety of art items: moving their existing collection, installing art in corridors and individuals' offices, and helping acquire a few new key pieces of artwork.

Last week, we installed this huge, 24 foot wide mural in their space!


The Wilson Center - An Exhibition of Jean Mohr Photographs

Artists Circle was retained by the Embassy of Switzerland to help design and install a traveling exhibition of photographer Jean Mohr's work. The exhibition, War from the Victims' Perspective, features over 60 images addressing the issues of victims of conflicts, refugees and communities suffering from war. At the end of the exhibit we will be moving it to The Carter Center in Atlanta.

The works in the Memorial Hall at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars are visible to the public through February 6, 2015.


Art + Beer Tasting Recap!

Sunday afternoon. Sipping beer. Looking at some amazing artwork. Spending time with great people. Daydreaming yet? If you missed our Beer Tasting, be sure to keep your eyes out for our Spring invitation!

Everyone had a great time viewing local artist Val Lewton's architectural works and perusing through our inventory sale:

Principal Jack Devine introduces Val Lewton's work to the crowd.

Val Lewton talks about the layers he creates in each piece, sometimes combining two separate places/images together to make a fictional landscape.

Artwork for U.S. Grains Council

U.S. Grains Council engaged Principal Jack Devine of Artists Circle to develop artwork concepts for their new space in Washington, DC. The collection includes photographs of fields of grain, grains silos, and two artists were commissioned to create custom photo collages.
