It would take years of gallery openings to see the crop of local work
currently on display at the maze that is Artomatic,
a pop-up gallery that has taken over an 11-story building in
Crystal City. Camera in tow, we spent an entire afternoon exploring
every corner, finding inspiration aplenty in gorgeous pieces
from both emerging and established artists. If you can’t make
it to the exhibition before it wraps on June 23, we’ve got a
look at some of the artists who really stood out—though there
were many, many more (there are more than 1,000 exhibiting).
Whether you’re on the hunt for that perfect piece to add to your
gallery or are just out for a little afternoon eye candy, we
promise you’ll find something inspiring.
