Get your passports together, make sure your visas and shots are up to date and, dare we print it, cross that body of water known as the Potomac into the land of the virgin queen.  The Capitol Hill Art League will present “Reflections” a juried group show at the Fisher Art Gallery at the Alexandria Campus of Northern Viginia Community College. The show opens at 7pm, closes at 10pm and the juror talk will begin at 8pm. For directions to the Fischer art gallery click here.
