Wednesday night, the DMV's own Merima Repesa (also known as Merimart), presented her first solo show, the #SuckaFree Exhibit. Merimart's detailed yet simply pigmented illustrations have double meanings — they portray wordplay and visual puns centered around the themes of racism, environmental awareness, feminism, and economic inequality.
With fellow "Thank You For Not Snitching" contributor Marcus Washington on the ones and twos, the exposed brick of the White Room, and a room of art and culture enthusiasts, Merimart's launch party was just the first of many future successes.
