The sixteenth tabletop happening of 5×7 UNDERGROUND occurred on Friday, February 7th, 2020 from 5-7 p.m. “Fatigue” was the theme and chosen by member, Jeff Sharp with an additional stipulation that the work must utilize stone as a material. I must admit that I came up with this theme in November while hiking the northern most part of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania. Lots of rocks and plenty of fatigue! Also a challenging combination for making art!

5×7 UNDERGROUND returned for the third time to the newly renovated Johansson’s Dining House in Westminster, MD. Artists in attendance included: Jeff Sharp, Mary Beth Francis, Jim Roberts, Lauren Latané-Valis, and Thomas Sterner. We found though renovated, the window area was still an ideal setting for our tabletop pop up. Their new pizza oven, was also a bit hit, the margarita pizza being my favorite.

Each artist revealed their interpretations of fatique, beginning with Jeff Sharp.

After each artist presented their work in rotation, the work was displayed for a gallery photograph. Each work was also photographed individually and are displayed in separate post in the image isolation 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, “idiom” (5in. x 7in. or smaller please) and post it to our Facebook group page. 5×7 UNDERGROUND will then post their artworks after the next happening on April 17th. We are trying to grow our online community and encouraged dedicated artists everywhere to participate!
