Arlington Arts Center Opening Exhibits and Reception - this Saturday!

Opening Exhibits at the Arlington Arts Center make for a particularly nice destination to socialize at in the winter, with three floors of art and photography to explore, and some food and drinks to partake in. Located across the street from Virginia Square Metro and with plenty of free street parking, AAC will feature three main openings on Saturday: the finalists for Interwoven: ArtCraftDesign; Megan Mueller: space+craft; and David Carlson: Work in Progress. There will also be open studios of resident artists to visit. There should be a lot for us to talk about!

At around 8 pm, we can perhaps go to dinner at a nearby restaurant.

Interwoven seeks to emphasize and expand the creative dialog around the ever-blurring boundaries between craft, design and fine art; the artwork includes sculpture, fiber, photography, video, and mixed media work. The two jurors, Melissa Messina and Kathryn Wat, were especially interested in artists who explore DIY practices, engage in the reclamation of craft-based materials, re-examine design aesthetics, and otherwise reinvent cross-disciplinary genres within the dialog of contemporary art. Melissa Messina is Senior Curator of SCAD Exhibitions (Savannah College of Art and Design); Kathryn Wat is Chief Curator, National Museum of Women in the Arts.

    I won't make it till at least 7 and then I have plans after. Not sure if I should take my name off the list or just tour myself.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone later. My number is[masked] if you need me; texting is probably easier. I'd like to play any dinner plans by ear. So let's count on a nice early evening time at the gallery (staying warm!) and then we'll see.
