Mark Giaimo and Eric Westbrook Art Opening

Mark Giaimo’s still life paintings mix the mundane with the sacred, and combine kitsch with classical realism in an homage to and a satire of this long-celebrated genre. By using cheap vinyl toys as stand-ins for live models, he creates narratives from compositional dichotomies, posing questions on the value and meaning of traditional art and its role in contemporary society. Opening Friday August 20, 2010 6-10 p.m. 2108 R Street NW Dupont Circle
