Title Theme:  Facets 

You are invited to exhibit this month at Pepco Edison Place Gallery in Washington, DC.  "FACETS" is the name of the show.  Now, Facets is the plural of facet which means one side of something that is many-sided, especially of a cut gem.  Speaking of which, garnet is the birthstone of January.  So that leads us to some ideas about this January 2019 show at Pepco Edison Place Gallery.  

 

Garnet, the birthstone of January is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust.

Facet also means a particular aspect or feature of something.  So this exhibition will feature paintings which convey one or more aspects of life, of an object, of a view of anything you'd like.  Even better if it has to do with trust or friendship...but not mandatory.  Again think "FACET" or "FACETS" - one side or many sides of one thing.  Yeah, this is short notice, but Pepco Edison Place Gallery management knows they can always depend on Art Impact International to put on a spectacular exhibition.  And with your help I know we won't let them down.  So complete the form and show me what you have available to install on Tuesday, January 8th.  Thanks so much for taking the time to consider this opportunity.
