joeyderuy.jpgYou're invited to join us for One Night Stand an art opening and spoken word performance taking place at the DC Center on Friday December 14th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The DC Center is located at 1318 U Street NW.

This event features the work of San Francisco Artist Joey DeRuy. Joey DeRuy has adapted to his surroundings and absorbed a wide array of influences due to his childhood spent in Africa, Montana, Europe, and Maine. Born in the late 70's to American philanthropists, Joey was influenced by the modern art and portraiture he observed as a young child. At the age of 11, Joey was featured in his first art show in Helena, MT establishing a career in art. His works in pen and ink have been utilized to create tattoo art, ad illustrations, international magazine recognition, and candle illustrations. For more information visit

The spoken word portion of the evening will begin at 7:00 PM with three talented local poets sharing poetry around the theme One Night Stand. Our poets for the evening are three immensely talented women who all have performed at our Capturing Fire Slam. They are Adelle Hampton, Danielle Evennou, and Sarah D. Lawson.

Hosting the soiree is Lindsey M. White
