The closing reception for CHAMBERS was, hands down, one of the best closing receptions that I’ve had the pleasure of being apart of and most definitely ended our exhibition in proper form.  The Instant Vintage vinyl record fair, featuring some of the areas finest vinyl record collectors, and producer showcase, featuring some DC’s most notable beat-smiths making Wu-Tang inspired beats, served as perfect complements to what many guests considered as a more than memorable night.  Thank you to everyone who attended, salute to all of those that helped spread the word, and props to our partners at ART WHINO and BLIND WHINO for helping to make this happen.  Stay tuned for more is all I’m gonna say…
