|David Van Scoyoc|
You might not think of Annandale as a particularly arty community, but we do have quite a few talented artists here.
David Van Scoyoc is one of them. Hidden away in his apartment/studio in the lower half of a rambler on a quiet suburban street in Broyhill Crest, he pursues a variety of projects—“any way I can express myself”—including paintings, metal sculptures, jewelry, ceramics, photography, film, and mobiles made of found objects. He also writes and plays the guitar.
Some of Van Scoyoc’s work was on display earlier this month at an Artists for Anacostia event at the Eastern Market to support the Anacostia Watershed Society.
Van Scoyoc gives away many of his pieces but also does work on commission, including pet portraits. “Just being able sell my art has been great,” he says.
