Cultivating Creative Communities through Real Estate and the Arts
SKY Real Estate opens new office in Eckington/Ledroit Park with ART BUZZ Showcase
(Washington, D.C.) This May, SKY Real Estate (www.skyrealestatedc.com) will open its new office in the District with a showcase of work by local community artists at ART BUZZ. Artists Darel Dawson (www.grindstonegalleries.com), Charles Jean Pierre (www.charlesjeanpierre.com), Joan Belmar (www.joanbelmar.com) and Chris Bishop (www.chrisbishop.com) will display their works at SKY’s new 1703 North Capitol Street, NE location on Thursday, May 17, 2012 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
SKY uniquely combines Real Estate and the Arts through its recurring signature ART BUZZ events; bringing local community artists together with home buyers and sellers. “We are excited to open our offices in a neighborhood that has been reinvigorated by the surge in the city’s real estate market,” said Cher Castillo Freeman, Principal Broker at SKY Real Estate. “Part of SKY’s mission is to support local artists and local non-profits in the community and we are thrilled this opening will benefit the D.C. Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative,” she concludes.
“I am thankful that SKY has chosen me to participate in this unique exhibition opportunity and appreciate its efforts to support the Arts community in D.C.,” says Darel Dawson, Grindstone Universal artist.
SKY Real Estate will provide artists a venue to sell their pieces as well as cultivate relationships that could lead to sales and leasing opportunities of artists’ creations. Attendees of the events have the option of leasing and/or purchasing artwork to display in homes that are for sale, which enhances the appeal of the property and provides further exposure for the artist.
All ART BUZZ event proceeds are donated to the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative. SKY extends its commitment to the arts to all of its customers by giving them an art gift purchased from a local artist at settlement.
