ART SOIREE PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS
FALL FINE ARTS SERIES @ THE RITZ-CARLTON, GEORGETOWN
EXCLUSIVE ONE NIGHT SOLO EXHIBITION BY BRIAN JOHNSON
Discover hidden gems of the local art scene as we showcase original works of art by local multi-talented fine artists every Friday starting September 13th at this restored turn-of-the-century brick factory and now a renowned and luxury landmark - The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown. From painting to photography to sculpture these unique and interactive exhibits, each in its own way, explore the diverse personality of the city and the art scene, while curating memorable art experiences.
"Balance is what drives my work and my life, my passion is my art and my creativity but I survive because of a fine balance between logic and abstraction, between fantasy and reality. My work represents the median between chaos and calm, color and void, structure and vacancy, what's obvious and what is hidden, depth and surface. By exploring these counterpoints and presenting the results through the various beautiful perspectives I experience I hope to share with others the complexity and majesty of everything."
Brian is a local DC Metro Area sculptor, painter and writer. He grew up as the art kid among his peers and cultivated a love for illustration and graphics throughout his childhood. Later upon attending Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, he further expanded his artistic interests and decided art was truly his passion, earning a BFA in Sculpture. He then returned to Northern Virginia, now living in Arlington, and continues to focus on abstract painting and sculpture.
