GEORGETOWN ARTS 2016, CAG's seventh annual community art show, will showcase the talents of more than 30 Georgetown artists on February 25–28, at House of Sweden, 2900 K Street NW.

The grand opening reception will be Thursday evening from 6–9 pm. House of Sweden requires a list of attendees to ensure admission, and attendees will need to show photo ID. Please RSVP to cagtownarts@gmail.com.

Following Thursday's opening party, Georgetown ARTS will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm. On Saturday, Christopher Addison from Addison/Ripley gallery will speak. There will also be "artist talks" on Saturday and Sunday between 11 am and 2 pm.

The show features artwork by local Georgetown residents and artists who have studios in Georgetown. Media include oil and watercolor paintings, prints, sculpture, and photography. Most works are for sale, and this year's show will also offer lower-priced, unframed works. The show's proceeds support CAG's work preserving the historic character, quality of life, safety, and community connections in Georgetown.

House of Sweden, our host and lead sponsor, is a stunning contemporary structure on the Potomac waterfront with footpaths to Georgetown's restaurants, parks, shops, theatres, and galleries. Opened in 2006, it is home to the Embassies of Sweden and Iceland and includes an event center and two floors of corporate office suites.
