Columbia Pike Artists Studios Fall Opening and Party
They only do this twice a year - the 10 or 12 studios open their art and photos to visitors and provide nice refreshments and wine (especially the very nice artist whose husband owns a bakery). It's not quite the group event that AU Katzen is, but it's very community-oriented and friendly. We'll more run into each other than walk together. Columbia Pike Artist Studios (CPAS) in Arlington, Virginia, was founded in 1989 when a passionate group of visual artists raised funds to convert a large retail space into studios. For nearly 25 years, the organization has provided working spaces for painters, sculptors, printmakers, collage artists, illustrators, and photographers. CPAS has benefited from its relationships with neighboring businesses since its inception, and members continually strive to engage with the local community. THere's plenty of free parking - it's on the bus line but not the Metro. I'm sure we could arrange some rides. The picture shown here is not from these galleries - just one of my faves. :-)

What we're about

Come into the ArtHouse ! Meet with local film and arts lovers to watch indie, foreign and classic films! We'll also attend art gallery openings, theater performances, Embassy evenings, museums, author readings and interesting concerts. And more often than not, there will be a reception! The idea will be to keep the price down and participation and conversation up!

We'll go wherever art house films are screened in town--museums, cultural institutions, embassies, local film festivals, as well as arthouse film meccas like the Goethe Institute, AFI Silver Theater and Landmark Theaters. We'll attend galleries you may not know and museums on special days. We're also connected to the theater world so we'll be seeing some of those shows.

Please be sure to read the group's attendance policy on the message board or "About Us" section. Also, note that the Art House meetup is a group for ACTIVE members fully engaged and interested in attending outings. Inactive members who have not logged into the site for 6 months or more are automatically removed to ensure the integrity of the group.

Members are asked to donate $1 per meetup they attend to help cover the fees ($72 per 6 months). You can make this 'suggested donation' online via Paypal or in person to your organizer. Your contribution is much appreciated!
