ART SOIREE PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS
FINE ART SERIES @ THE RITZ-CARLTON, GEORGETOWN
***We look much forward to seeing you tonight. Due to the heavy overcast and the forecast of thunderstorm we moved the exhibit indoors to the Degrees Lounge, which is transformed into a glowing gallery lit only by self-lit and black-lit art of Michael Auger. The night will also feature music by DJ Agent Max, live saxophone and trumpet performances, and live hoop dance performance.***
Fine Art Series is more than an art exhibit, it's an inspiring and interactive experience of art, music, and performance. Join us Friday, April 4th as we launch the outdoor Garden Season with a unique "Glow In the Dark" artwork by DC's very own Michael Auger. Explore the original works of art by this local multi-talented fine artist, meet him in person, and enjoy live musical performances, while sipping on one of the hotel's signature cocktails or a luscious wine.
100% of proceeds from the sale of the art will benefit artist directly.
So come and support this amazing artist!
EXCLUSIVE ONE NIGHT SOLO EXHIBITION FOR MICHAEL AUGER
Michael J. Auger (last name pronounced: O-'zhA / rhymes with okay) was born and raised in the Washington D.C. area. His offbeat paintings feature an assortment of animals, crazy characters, mythical monsters and more!
"I dream in vivid color and an assortment of diverse characters are continuously filling up the inside of my head. I paint them into existence using unapologetically bold color and a thick, chunky acrylic that begs to be touched. My art appeals to both children and adults who want to express their offbeat side. I believe that the true test of art is if it succeeds in evoking emotion from the viewer. My paintings usually make people smile and sometimes even laugh. That’s a wonderful vindication which motivates me to create more. I also enjoy experimenting with alternative techniques. Many of my paintings reveal additional colors and effects when viewed by blacklight. I am inspired by the supernatural and unusual that hide behind the veil of reality and believe that the world is better off with a bit more silliness and magic." - Michael Auger
Auger holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Columbus College of Art and Design which he attended on a four-year merit scholarship. In addition to his fine art, Auger also provides custom illustration and graphic design services for a variety of clients worldwide. His motto is “If you can dream it, I can draw it!”.
