Artomatic Takes Flight

Alas, I missed the opening reception of Artomatic Takes Flight, but I journeyed out to Ronald Reagan National Airport last weekend to check out the exhibit, on display until June 25th in the hallway connecting Terminal A.

Artomatic, a 12-year old DC art nonprofit, is known for the non-juried exhibits they've put on in empty buildings that transform blank spaces into creative wonderlands. More than 1,000 visual artists and 600 performing artists participated in the 2009 ten year anniversary festival. 

Artomatic Takes Flight is a smaller event, with 83 artists displaying their work. Selection was made on a first come, first serve basis. The art will perhaps offer solace to travellers waiting for delayed connections.

A selection of favorites: 
Jeff Chyatte
High Carbon Steel

David Hagen
Carrot Ride
Acrylic on Canvas

Liya Sheer
Acrylic on Cavas

Yelena Rodina
Bottle City
