Friday March 1


Honfleur Gallery (6pm to 9pm)

The Washington Sculptors group will take over the Anacostia gallery and show the work of over 30 artists selected by Philadelphia-based curator Florcy Morisset. Sculpture Now 2013 shows a dizzying array of sculpture including traditional and very nontraditional mediums and structures using materials such as books, cardboard, recycled materials and even computer motherboards. For more information, click here.


Honfleur Gallery is located at 1241 Good Hope RD SE


The Gallery at Vivid Solutions (6pm to 9pm)

Born to an American mother and a father from the Danish Faroe Islands, photographer Benjamin Rasmussen searches for his identity through image making.  In Home, Rasmussen convincingly finds commonality in the places he has lived which include the tropical island of Balabec in the Philippines, the Faroe Islands in the north Atlantic and Wyoming.  For more information, click here.


NOTE: The Gallery at Vivid Solutions is temporarily relocated to the second floor of 1241 Good Hope RD SE while the permanent space is being renovated.


International Glass and Clay 2013 (5:30pm to 8pm)

The international expo is a collaboration between the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Artomatic, the City of Sunderland (UK), the UK National Glass Center and Mount Rainier’s very own Washington Glass School, Flux Studios, DC Glassworks and Red Dirt Studios.  Expect to see some of DC and Sunderland’s most talented glass and clay sculptors at PEPCO’s downtown gallery.  Why Sunderland you ask? It happens where George Washington’s family originally came from and is DC’s sister city in the UK.  For more information, click here.


PEPCO Edison Gallery is located at 702 Eight ST NW at Gallery Place Metro

2B Studios and Small Room Gallery

Just how small is the Small Room Gallery?  Let’s just say it is only large enough to fit a commode, a sink and a shower- yes, it is a bathroom!  DC’s Calder Brannock inaugurates the space with LIVE/WORK.  While you are in the one-person space, visit the studios used by artists Graham Boyle, Roxaman Geffen, Rose Jaffe, Jacob Perkinson and Lindsay Rowinski.  For more information, click here.

2B Studios and Small Room Gallery is located at 411 New York Avenue NE

The Fridge (7pm to 11pm)

In keeping with the weekend’s theme of large expos and group shows, do not miss the work of 80 graffiti artists who have come from all over the US (from as far away as Hawaii), Argentina, Brazil and the UK.  Hello my name is will also feature many staple DC-based street artists such as Tim Conlon and Alicia Cosnahan. For more information, click here.


The Fridge is located at 516 1/2 8th Street rear alley, SE
