|Opening reception for International Glass and Clay 2013 Exhibit in Washington, DC|
The collaborative show, organized by Artomatic, the Office of the Secretary of the District of Columbia and DC's Sister City of Sunderland, England and the University of Sunderland had a great turnout for the first night of the month long event. A number of the UK artists exhibiting in the show were on hand at the opening, and they were able to make connections with collectors and the DC creative community.
Below are some photos of the opening night and of the exhibition:
