We haven't been on a Bethesda Art Walk in a while - not quite as many galleries as there used to be - but tonight will be a bit special. Amy Morton, the highly regarded owner of Morton Fine Art on Florida Ave., makes her annual trek to Bethesda to take over the beautiful Gallery B space. She'll bring with her the artwork of Nathaniel Donnett, Victor Ekpuk, Julia Fernandez Pol, Maya Freelon Asante, Vonn Sumner and William Mackinnon. We'll start at Waverly which will feature the beautiful photography of Barbara French Pace and new work by their resident artists. That's always a fun gathering place.
We'll be at Waverly from about 6 to 6:40, then Gallery B from about 6:45 to 7:20 or so. There are 1 or 2 more that we could visit. In the past, we've gone to Sala Thai for dinner; they have a wonderful upstairs dining area, good food at reasonable prices, and LIVE JAZZ. I'll be checking with them this weekend.
It all makes for a really fun arts and social evening.
The best parking lot is at Woodmont and Old Georgetown because you pay at the end - no meters. Metro is great - go thru the tunnel under Wisconsin, up the escalator, out the door, take a right and then Waverly gallery is around the corner.
