The thirteenth tabletop happening of 5×7 UNDERGROUND occurred on Thursday, July 25th, 2019 from 5-7 p.m. “Icon” was the theme and chosen by member, Lauren Latané-Valis.

Taking advantage of the nice summer weather, 5×7 UNDERGROUND met once again at Thomas Sterner’s art studio, “Sterner Art Factory” in Silver Run, Maryland. The Sterner wood-fire pizza oven was roaring, so naturally, the group was compelled to eat some delicious wood-fire pizza. Being an artist is so hard in the middle of the summer!

Artists in attendance included: Jeff Sharp, Mary Beth Francis, Jim Roberts, Lauren Latané-Valis and Thomas Sterner.

Note that Jim Roberts currently has work in a show at NOMA in Frederick, Maryland until the end of August 2019.

Each artist presented their interpretation of icon. After each 5×7 UNDERGROUND artist presented their work in rotation, the work was displayed for a gallery photograph. Each work was also photographed individually and can be viewed in the isolated image gallery. We hope you enjoy the art and will visit us again!

Feel free to leave some comments below and visit and/or join our Facebook group as we invite all interested artists to create an interpretation of the next theme, “inversion” (5″x7″ or smaller please) and post it to our Facebook group page. 5×7 UNDERGROUND will then post their artworks on the Facebook group page after the next happening on September 20th, 2019. We continue to grow our online community and encourage dedicated artists everywhere to participate!
