3rd Friday in Georgetown - gallery openings and new life at the Harbor

Let's relax after a week of work by chilling out and socializing at the galleries of[masked]st Street and the wonderful Old Print Gallery across M street. Parish Gallery has always been one of my favorite galleries in the city because of the interesting art and diverse crowd that owner Norman Parish (and wife Gwen) attracts. They are currently showing something quite amazing: Willard Wigan's micro-sculptures. It costs $5 to view but it is worth it because you will never see anything else like it. They will also have a show by Maria-Lana Queen. Next door, MOCA is always worth a quick walk-thru as is a gallery owned by a Russian art professor and her artist husband. You can easily get lost in the old prints and maps of The Old Print Gallery, where we will wander to after. It is the opening of their 2012 Winter Contemporary Show.

Afterwards we'll walk down to the new ice skating rink at Washington Harbor and the sparkling new Farmers Fishers Bakers. Their menu looks very reasonable though I don't know how crowded they will be. A more casual option will be to just grab some pizza and watch the ice skaters.

This is not a meetup where we will be moving quickly. So please if you decide to join us, know that we will be socializing and relaxing rather than shuttling from gallery to gallery as we do in Dupont and Bethesda. The galleries here usually do have nice appetizers and small glasses of wine to enjoy.

Foggy Bottom is probably the closest Metro. The Circulator Bus stops just a block away. The galleries open at 6 if you are already downtown.

    A very good evening and a nice group of people. All of the art venues were very enjoyable and the miniture figures by Willard Wigan were an absolute delight!

    Hi Ronn, is the parking garage you refer to a public one? Is it a good place to park for the gallery? Thanks!

      Yes, it is public and convenient. There is also a garage at Washington Harbor on K Street that would be convenient.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. My number is[masked]-7494. Parish Gallery is in a courtyard off of 31st St. across from Paper Moon restaurant next to a parking garage. It's pretty close to M Street.
