all are welcome! this is a free, family friendly, community event 

Summer is a great time to escape with art, music, food, drinks and aerialists!  Join us at our first ever Art Escape Charity Event!  We’ll be turning our yoga studio into an art studio– featuring nine talented and unique local artists; including a live aerialist! Artists will be showcasing and displaying their artwork throughout the entire studio.  Leave your yoga mat at home, grab a friend, make new friends and peruse this one of a kind art gallery experience.

See something you like?  All the pieces will be available for purchase and 10% of the sales will be going to our partner charity, Share Your Calories; a Stop Hunger Now partner.  RAW!, a DC based vegetarian cuisine  & catering company, will be offering up delicious light refreshments at the exhibit as well.

Come and go as you please, but let us know that you plan on coming by visiting our invite (don’t worry, last minute visits are welcome too).

our charity partner:

shareyourcaloriesShare Your Calories app development – The financial contributions from the Share Your Calories app would go towards funding Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging events. The meal assembly process combines rice, dehydrated soy and vegetables, and a vitamin-mineral pack into every meal. Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country. Currently, the only way Stop Hunger Now can execute meal-packaging events is for large host-organizations to provide financial support. Funds from this app will enable Stop Hunger Now to engage smaller groups, such as universities, schools, civic and religious organizations, and small business to participate.
