We are so thrilled to have been selected for Think Local First‘s location for this quarter’s Cash Mob! Think Local First supports independent, locally owned and operated business in DC. These events put your dollars directly back into the community. We’ll be serving refreshments during the event, and we have LOTS of fun items at or under $20 such as our hand printed tees and ties, posters by Fire Studio, small art prints, poetry books by local authors, jewelry, housewares, and more!
JOIN US THIS SATURDAY, MAY 4, 4-7PM
for our Resident Artists Exhibition & Open Studios!
The original gallery space, the new studio space, The Ranch! co-working space, and the Euclid Street Studios will all be open!
Plains Workshop is an incubator space for 8 resident artists working in a variety of mediums. Through their connection to the workshop, they have access to the print studio and often incorporate printmaking in their works. See pieces from each artist, and explore the studio spaces and check out the new building expansion.
Featuring works by: Ken Ashton (Courtesy of Civilian Art Projects), Kristina Bilonick, Anthony Dihle, Bethany Hansen, Chris Haughery, Rujunko Pugh, Champneys Taylor, and Ann-Marie VanTassell.
Gallery exhibition runs through June 8th
Gallery Hours: Thurs & Fri 2-7pm, Sat 1-6pm
As part of our renovations of the space next door, we’ve hired one of our fave PPW artists, Elizabeth Graeber paint a mural on the roll down door so that people can see something fun when they pass by and we’re closed. The mural depicts a bison hanging out in Pleasant Plains. The Bison is the mascot for Howard University which is a big part of the neighborhood here. Other elements incorporated into the scene are the McMillan Resevoir, The HU clock tower, and green space which is prevalent in these parts…
The final piece will be revealed at our upcoming grand re-opening and resident artist exhibition on 5/4. In the meantime, check out the progress, and say hello to Elizabeth as she finishes the mural this week!

The exhibition is accompanied by the release of a series of prints and drawings made in collaboration with Pleasant Plains Workshop Resident Artist (and brother) Anthony Dihle.
