This Saturday afternoon, from 3 to 6, feast your eyes on new works by Studio Artists currently enjoying their tenure at School 33 Art Center (we capitalize Studio Artists because it’s such an honor to be one). Since 1979, School 33’s Studio Artist Program has provided roomy studio space (at subsidized rates) to more than 125 pro local creatives. In 2008, 33 established the Studio Mentoring Program, which facilitates critiques and professional support between prominent artists and resident artists. 2011 show features artists who have been at School 33 for over two years and several whose tenure has been only a few months. This year’s mentors include George Ciscle, MICA curator-in-residence, Zöe Charleton, acclaimed artist and faculty member at American University, and Cara Ober, artist, curator and arts writer. Best of all: Fishbowl’s own resplendent resident artist, Jowita Wyszomirska, is set to reveal an exciting installation.

Other awesome participating artists: Susan Faden, Laurie Flannery, Matthew Freel, Hyeseung Marriage-Song, Dierdre Shea, Aaron Yamada-Hanff, and Kenneth Yee.

Added bonus: If you’ve not toured the grand old building, a former city school, it’s a work of art unto itself, featuring sky-high ceilings and long, gorgeous windows.

Opening Reception: June 25, 2011, 3-6pm –  1427 Light Street
