Inspired by the many things you can do with a quart bag, Civilian Art Projects and friends have invited 100 DC area artists to participate in a community art exhibition called Quart Bag. The exhibition provides an imaginative opportunity for artists to use thirty-two ounces of space within a plastic quart size bag. All works of art will be sold for $100 or less, providing an opportunity for all people to walk home with a piece of art that is FAA approved.

Below are some of the photographs I took last night at the opening reception for Quart Bag at the Civilian Art Projects. There were over 100 different pieces in the show and I managed to photograph about 1/3 of them.

  1. Hey, just wanted you to know we linked to your blog over at ARTifice, since you have great images of some of our work, and the work of friends. (Also, my friend Kate’s map-bag- awesome!)

    Nice post and congrats on having work in the show!

    “A Gallon Bag of Last Night’s Leftovers” is hilarious, especially since I was standing right next to it for probably 10 minutes and never even noticed it.
