Bethesda Art Walk! New Gallery, Bethesda Painting Awards

We haven't been to Bethesda for a while, so let's go for it before the summer kicks in. Gallery B will feature the Bethesda Painting Award winners. And a new gallery has started called Bethesda Fine Art with some famous artists. So I think we'll have 4 galleries to visit. 

We'll start at Waverly from about 6 to 6:30, then head to either Studio B or Gallery B.  In the past, we've gone to Sala Thai which has live jazz on Friday nights and a large upstairs.  But if the weather is nice, we may prefer something outside like Vapiano. Either way, it all makes for a really fun arts and social evening.

The Bethesda Painting Awards at Gallery B is downtown Bethesda's annual juried art competition that exclusively honors painters from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. $14,000 in prize monies are awarded to the top four painters annually.

Waverly features THE FASHIONABLE CONTAINER , Works in Clay by Yonina Blech-Hermoni . This exhibition grew out of the visit she made to Yixing, China, where she learned the techniques of their famous “faux” teapots which mimic, in clay and in amazing detail and texture, insects, trees, faces and everything in between. Also New Work by Gallery Artists including Under the Influence: Street Musicians; Sculptures by Acquaetta Williams

Bethesda Fine Art's opening exhibition Homage to the Stripe, features the work of Gene Davis as well as the geometric abstractions of masters Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol Lewitt, Sonya Delaunay, Ilya Bolotowski, Cynthia Bickley, Josef Albers, Jenny Holzer and others.

The best parking lot is underground at Woodmont and Old Georgetown because you pay at the end - no meters. Taking Metro is great - when you exit, walk thru the tunnel under Wisconsin (and check out the art!), up the escalator, out the door, take a right and then Waverly gallery is around the corner, next to Booeymongers. 

See you Friday!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
