We’re getting even more creative at our new Higher Logic headquarters in Arlington, VA. Last week we co-hosted our first art show with Barbara Hawthorn Interiors, Ltd., featuring local artist Jason Kampf. Special thanks to Barbara and her team for their help in making this dream of ours a reality and introducing us to Jason!
Jason’s premier paintings and photography are displayed throughout the office, and proceeds from Kampf’s work will be donated to some of Higher Logic’s favorite charities. Picasso and Warhol and a trip to the Louvre were the inspiration behind Jason's decision to begin painting.
Through various materials and experimentation of techniques, Jason's paintings and photography have grown into larger sized works that demand your attention. His bold use of texture and color combinations create movement and interest. Jason had this to say about the collection: "It's when a picture of seemingly nothing, stops you...the combinations of elements produce a harmony you can't resist."
We had a great time sharing cocktails and conversations with Jason and benefactors from The Phillips Collection, DC Commission for Arts & Humanities and the McLean Project for the Arts.
Check out some of our favorite moments from this inaugural art show.
Jason’s paintings evoke a vibrant energy that is perfect for the Orange Army. Some of his photography also is featured by the main entrance to the office.
Shout-out to one of our favorite bakers, Village Sweet Bakery, for these mini art masterpieces! The cookies were fun to see and eat during the art show.
