ROCKVILLE, MD (June 19, 2019) – Seventy works of art created by 19 local artists will be showcased this summer at Palette 22’s Pop Up Art Gallery windows on display at Federal Realty Investment Trust’s (NYSE:FRT) Village at Shirlington. The artwork, ranging in size from 14″ x 14″ up to 3′ x 4′, will be featured in the windows at 4001 Campbell Avenue throughout the summer and viewable from the street and sidewalk. It will include photography; painted canvas works in acrylic, watercolor and oil; framed works; and found objects like a mosaic table and poured-paint guitars.

“The Pop Up Art Gallery is an expansion of our Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program at Palette 22, where regional artists showcase, create and promote their original work inside the restaurant,” said Tom DeMott, General Manager of Palette 22. “We’re excited to provide the Shirlington neighborhood with this program on a much larger scale and promote the arts and culture experience of Palette 22 outside of our restaurant space.”

A celebration with the artists is scheduled for Wednesday, June 19th, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., outside of the gallery space on Campbell Avenue, where the artists, their friends and family, and customers will be able to view the works of art and enjoy light sips and snacks. The day also marks the first concert performance of Shirlington’s summer concert series, Decades of Summer, featuring local bands performing a mix of the 70s, 80s, 90s and original tunes.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Palette 22 once again to convert the windows of an available piece of real estate into a Pop-Up Art Gallery,” said Dan Corwin, Director of Asset Management at Federal Realty. “It’s a great opportunity to introduce local artists to our community and beautify open windows by showcasing the unique artistic element of Palette 22’s dining experience on another corner of Campbell Avenue.”

Palette 22 offers an eclectic menu of globally inspired shareable plates served in a bustling art studio and gallery atmosphere. The restaurant embraces art, creativity, and incredible flavors from around the world, showcased in a lively space where customers can observe and interact directly with artists and creators.
