President of Downtown Artists Coalition (DAC) Mike Berman and other artists displaced by downtown redevelopment will celebrate tomorrow evening with the grand opening of F ST Arts.
Located at 923 F Street in the Carroll Square Complex the event will begin at 6:30 pm.
Included in the new Carroll Square development at 975 F Street, NW, is 7000 square feet of working art studio space, now leased from Akridge by DAC, which subleases to many of the artists who originally occupied space on the street. The studios occupy the 2nd and 3rd floors of the preserved and rehabbed townhouses that are incorporated into the development.
Berman's space in the project will function as a gallery called CAOS on F. The opening show will feature paintings by Berman, wood furniture by Matthew Falls, ceramics by Joe Hicks and paintings by Quint Marshall. In addition to Berman, Falls and Hicks are exhibitors at the Flea Market at Eastern Market.
