Michael Hampton Design: Architectural Watercolors -gallery opening

I'm so proud of my good friend Michael Hampton.  Not only is he a talented designer but did you know he is an accomplished artist as well? Next Friday evening, October 17th, from 6-8 is the opening of a show of his Architectural Watercolors (some pictured here) at Susan Calloway Fine Arts here in Georgetown.
I recently purchased one of his architectural watercolors myself and the amount of time and research he spends on their execution is really impressive. Michael continually hones his watercolor skills through the many recent classes he has taken including ones offered by the ICAA. One can always learn and grow!
If you're in Washington I hope you will take the time to visit Michael's exhibit (on view until November 15) even if you can't make it to the opening at Susan Calloway Fine Arts (October 17, 2014 from 6-8pm).  Also be sure to check out his website for more of his watercolors as well as his design portfolio; prepare to be impressed!

Hi Stefan - Both Michael's interior designs and watercolors are elegant, a word that I think is going to reappear in this posting often.

Oh, how I would love to see these in person, but, I'm on the wrong side of the country.

I love architectural drawings and these are marvelous. I remember attending an exhibit at the John Soane Museum in London where architectural drawings and paintings by Joseph Gandy were being shown in the basement level. It was a real privilege to see those in such fitting surroundings.

Hi Stefan, oh I wish I could make it!! His work is amazing - what talent (and I'm sure lots of careful, diligent study and hours of work!!!). What a wonderful area of study...congrats to him. I love Susan Calloway's gallery too and never miss it when in DC (I get her emails and envy the shows I can't attend). Have fun! I have to catch up on your posts, and thanks again for your very sweet and thoughtful comments on the wedding. If you need help planning yours when the time comes, I have some tips (I really need to post a "what I learned" and do's and don'ts post). Haha. ;)
I hope you are well. Best, Terri
