Ok, so remember on Friday when we were talking about BuyGudArt? (Buying Good Art)? Well, turns out, it’s easier than you think. Check it out – In the dark and dingy corner of the world that is the 3300 blocks of M. Street in Georgetown, a new gallery has opened up, and has made doing business of buying one of kind art, that much easier. Lumas is an in-person and online gallery, with establishments in Soho, Berlin, Paris, Zurich, Boston, Miami, and now Georgetown. Maintained by gallery directors Julia Heinemann and Heike Dander, Lumas offers the ability for anyone to get closer to the richness of contemporary art and photography. Their kelidoscope of works range from Steichen and Walker Evans prints to Imi Knoebel works, and suprisingly, everything is relatively well priced, whether you’re a long-time collector, or looking for your first piece.
Check out Lumas at 3307 M. St. And while you’re on your way down there, check out the art you don’t need to enter a gallery to see, the new/new to me works by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey, on the recently closed (sign o’the times) Starbucks on 33rd and M. St. -kk
