SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, NOON TO 6 P.M., I’LL BE SELLING MY WORK AT ADAMS MORGAN DAY ON 18TH STREET NEAR COLUMBIA ROAD NW. Enjoy one of the city’s oldest street fairs with music, food, a neighborhood history exhibit, and dancing in the streets. For the past few years, Adams Morgan Day has been an all-volunteer-run, grassroots event. Come celebrate my neighborhood!
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME SATURDAY, SEPT. 7: TO GET READY FOR ADAMS MORGAN DAY, I WON’T BE AT EASTERN MARKET. I’ll be working from my home in Adams Morgan, and you’re welcome to call or text me if there’s something you want to pick up, 202-390-9069
When I am at Eastern Market, my booth is on the plaza just north of the market house, near Seventh & North Carolina SE. Eastern Market is DC’s longest continually operating public market, dating to 1805, when President Thomas Jefferson approved the community’s request for a neighborhood market. (Seriously: he issued a presidential proclamation!) The original Eastern Market was located next to the Navy Yard on Capitol Hill. Today’s Eastern Market was opened in 1873. Eastern Market proudly reflects our city’s diverse cultures, where people of all colors, ages, and beliefs come to shop and mingle.
WHAT DOES DC LOOK LIKE? The squat red building that is Ben’s Chili Bowl? The White House? Frederick Douglass’s house? The arches of Key Bridge, or the marshes of the Anacostia? I sell more than 100 views and maps of the city as matted prints, ranging in size from 8″x10 to 16″x20″ for $15 to $45 each.
Limited-edition prints, published by Old Town Editions of Alexandria, include the Rock Creek Park and National Mall maps, 18th Street in Adams Morgan, the Neighborhoods of Washington, DC, and the DC Cherry Blossoms Kimono. These numbered, signed pieces are created by Old Town Editions using the most advanced digital printing processes, resulting in the truest reproductions of the original watercolors that will last decades before yellowing in fading.
