Hillyer Art’s first Friday of February will be a bigger party than usual, as the gallery comes off a 1-month hiatus for renovations. The Grand Re-Opening will feature paintings by Andrea Barnes (MD), sculptures by Linda Hesh (VA), and mixed media work from Jason Yen (DC).
This small contemporary art gallery and work space may be located in the shadow of the much larger and well-known Phillips Collection, however this alleyway art gallery boasts some of the best exhibitions of contemporary art in the District. Known particularly for its participation in DuPont Circle’s monthly art party every first Friday of the month, each first friday opening at the Hillyer features new work from local and area artists (usually three per month) working in all media. Come out this Friday Feb 6th 6-9PM for complimentary food and drinks a diverse, fun crowd and art! Be sure not to miss what looks like what will be one of the most exciting art events of the year.
