First Annual Wonderland Show by Art Soiree last night @ L2 Lounge

Thanks to the wonderful organizers, Tati ana and Sandro, Art Soiree hosted another great party last night at L2 lounge in Georgetown – Their First Annual Wonderland Show.

Given they were founded only in September of 2009 – a few month before I launched Awesome DC, I was very impressed with the turn out.  Tati and Sandro started the company with the goal to showcase emerging talent in the visual arts, short film, music, and performance art in the Washington, DC.

Washington could use more people like these guys.  Their work is right along line with my mission with awesome DC blog and my social media company, that I launched last month 🙂 With their focus in art and mine in technology, I believe we should be able to position Washington, DC as the hub for Art, Culture, technology, partying, and fun events, as opposed to just classic Politics, corruption, scandals, and the fuck ups 🙂

Back to the party last night, the ambiance was just awesome! Everyone enjoyed the live performance by Robertas Kupstas & Flavius Mihaies. There were multi-artist photo exhibition by Anthony Brice, Emily Clack, Tim Coburn, Dominique Fierro, Yulia Mikhalchuk, Natalya Skiba, Peter Stepanek, Alyona Vogelmann and the smoking hot, Xeniya Ketz.  I had the pleasure of spending some time with Xeniya about her photos. Here she is with her glorious look posing in front of her work. I have no idea who the other chick was in the photo, but I do remember her wasted an hour later 🙂

Here are works from other artists there last night:

The event followed by dancing long into the night!

Too bad I didn’t get the opportunity to showcase my artistic photos I took from the stores in Georgetown on my way walking back home :-)Otherwise, I could have shown them a technologist can also be an artist 😉
