Yes You Kant
Meanwhile, there’s more to life than sports, as evidenced by a couple of Capitol Hill art shows this week.
Washington-based artist Kari Kant is debuting her show “Abstraction: Acrylics on Canvas” on June 6 at the Newseum.
In a private viewing on the Newseum Residences Rooftop (565 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) from 6 to 8:30 p.m., Kant will show her work with Capitol Hill literally in the background. She’ll be donating a portion of proceeds from the event to Tracy’s Kids, a nonprofit that provides art therapy to kids with cancer.
One of Kant’s paintings recently fetched $800 at Taste of the South. The Fairhope, Ala., native knows her way around the capital, having come to D.C. in 2004 and working on Capitol Hill before picking up a paintbrush. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kari Kant "Abstraction" Art Presentation at the Newseum When Thu, June 6,6:00 pm - 8:30 pm Where Newseum Admission Open Description 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.
