Gallery Show to Benefit Metro DC PFLAG

Permanent Link | Posted by Front Desk on February 20, 2013 2:08 PM


Caramel Gallery & Boutique Presents Art Exhibit
PFLAG - Metro DC to benefit from exhibition reception.

What: Gallery Show to Benefit Metro DC PFLAG
Who: Artist Linda Button and Store Owner Sarah Watkins
Where: Caramel Boutique, 1603 U Street NW, Washington DC
When: Thursday, February 21, 2013 6:00-8:00pm

This Thursday from 6 to 8 pm, Caramel Boutique owner Sarah Watkins and Maryland Artist Linda Button will host a reception to help celebrate, commemorate and raise money in honor of Metro DC PFLAG'S 30th anniversary. Complimentary refreshments will be served, and both the artist and the boutique will donate 30 percent of sales during the event to Metro DC PFLAG.

Linda Button paints in a luminous floating-edge style. In recent years, she has been exploring the visual eloquence of "Window Licking" (aka window shopping) through oil paintings that feature the multiple realities of mannequins and the reflections of pedestrians, architecture, sky, symbols, and slashes of flora. Her technique entails iterative building of shimmering layers, capturing multiple slices of urbanscapes and the pseudo-people with their captivating, coquettish attire who inhabit these fantasy spaces.

Linda Button's work is currently on display through March 24th at Caramel Boutique, located at 1603 U Street, NW, in Washington DC.

Caramel carries unique clothing and accessories for women and men. Featuring international, national, and local designers; belts; jewelry and ever-changing artwork, Caramel sometimes stocks only one or two of the hottest fashion choices so nobody else in fashion-starving D.C. is wearing the same thing. In addition to clothes and accessories, Caramel hosts art shows for local artists on a monthly basis.
