(June 21, 2008) – local artists R. Alexander Clark, Michelle Fatovic, Sofya Mirvis and Emily Chimiak will exhibit different
styles of painting ranging from colorfully edgy to mystic abstraction. The show
takes place at DEKKA, a cooperative gallery showcasing fashion art and music.
of a diverse group of clothing and accessory designers, retailers, and fine artists.
Each artist is an integral part of unifying this eclectic mix, forming a cohesive space between sound, sight, and style. R. Alexander Clark's calligraphic drawings of city sass and bright DC row houses merge
with the urban fashion of the showroom. The work of Sofya Mirvis harmoniously
integrates the flowing, feminine fashion and accessories (of the back showroom) with subtle drawings and ethereal hues, intertwining
the element of the space in a skillfully choreographed movement. Michelle Fatovic's bold sculptural paintings shine in brilliant
contrast on the brick wall staircase, as her syrupy lines stand alone with striking intensity. The paintings of Emily Chimiak
transform the entrance way, propelling the viewer into layers that seem to rise from a deeper space.
The show will open Saturday,
June 21st 6-9:30 pm. This will be the first art show since the grand opening of DEKKA on April 5, 2008. DEKKA artists plan
to host monthly rotating exhibits and community art events. Each show will be an opportunity to meet with the artists. DEKKA
is located at 1338 U Street, N.W., 2nd Floor, Washington, D.C. 20009. For more
