DC-based Artist Kari Kant to Host Debut "Abstraction" Presentation
May 15, 2013 (Washington, DC) - DC-based artist Kari Kant's debut show "Abstraction" will take place at a private viewing on the Newseum Residences Rooftop on Thursday, June 6th from 6 - 830PM. A portion of proceeds from the event's sales will be donated to Tracy's Kids (www.tracyskids.org), a non-profit organization providing art therapy to children with cancer.
With a background in lobbying and international development, Kant has amassed a devout DC fan base of politicos and art world aficionados alike with attention received from Roll Call and other leading publications. She believes that her work should also serve to support her community and, as a result, has donated works to raise funds for organizations such as the Taste of the South annual DC event to combat homelessness in the US, Becky's Fund in support of victims of domestic abuse, Not Alone, Inc. in support of military members suffering from PTSD and more.

About Kari Kant Art (www.KariKantArt.com)Originally from Fairhope, Alabama, Kari Kant has resided in Washington, D.C. since 2004. As a self-taught abstract expressionist artist, she draws inspiration from her life as an independent professional woman living in the nation's capital. She is known for including several layers of texture to create vibrant pieces that literally pop out from the canvas. Kari picked up a paint brush and began painting in 2009, exploring and learning new techniques on her own through trial and error. At the end of 2011 she launched Kari Kant Art where she now paints by commission for privately funded projects as well as for charitable causes.
