Join ArtTable’s DC Chapter for June’s BreakfastTable featuring Allison Nance and Teddy Rodger, co-founders and curators of Plain Sight, an independent exhibition space born out of the many art space closures during the Covid-19 pandemic. Guests will gather in front of Plain Sight and learn more about Allison and Teddy’s partnership and concept behind Plain Sight, and about their current exhibition by Lee Nowell-Wilson. After, we will walk one block to Doubles Cafe for a Dutch Treat-style breakfast and conversation outdoors on their large covered patio.
