June 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Washington, DC—"Duets" is a show featuring a diverse topography. “Our canvases are the platform on which discussions take place. Sometimes they are introspective and sometimes they are playful. They are free visual expressions of ideas, unrestricted from subscribing to a specific style or genre,” says Gascot. The energetic pair refers to their collaborative work as “an ongoing conversation” about the purpose and necessity of ART in 2012. Stout says, “The paintings explore different ideas and attitudes of what ART is or isn’t.” Gascot & Stout’s artistic mission is to make art accessible to all and explore its potential as a vehicle for social change.

The duo, playfully known as “The Art Monkeys,” is driven to create art in a new way—together. One canvas, two minds, four hands and diametrically opposed painting styles have given harmonious shape to an eclectic body of work. The DC Center, located at 1318 U Street NW in Washington, D.C., will host "Duets," an eight-week exhibition featuring this thought-provoking new series. "Duets" will run from July 14 to September 8, 2012. The exhibit is free and open to the public during The DC Center’s regular business hours (Monday-Friday 12-6pm, Saturday 11am-3pm). A reception will be held on Saturday, July 21, 6-9pm. Q’Radio ( http://www.myqradio.com ) will be on hand to broadcast the event, which includes an Artists’ Talk/Q&A Session.
