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.
