Weekend East City Event Round Up

H Street Icon | ART OPENINGS |

East City Super Weekend of Art Openings and Monday Entry Deadlines

There are four openings this Saturday in the H Street Corridor.  All openings begin at 6pm Saturday July 10.

First, head over to CITY Gallery to see the opening of their  First Annual Associate Member Show.  The show features the work of thirteen artists showcasing everything from photography, painting and ceramic sculpture.
Next head over to G Fine Art, Industry Gallery and Conner Contemporary Art. The best part is that they are all next door to each other on Florida Avenue NE so you can kill three birds with one stone.
On Friday evening G Fine Art will present a Q&A session between Melissa Anderson of the Village Voice and Karen Yasinsky whose work “I Choose Darkness” opens on Saturday at 6PM.  
On Saturday Conner Contemporary Art showcases the best and brightest BFA and MFAs of the DC-Baltimore metropolitan area at a show aptly named Academy 2010.  At 7PM, Pulse Contemporary Art Fair will select a winner who will be given space at Pulse Miami 2010.
Above Conner Contemporary, Industry Gallery will be hosting a group show entitled “Getting to Now- Pathways to 21st Century Design” featuring the work of internationally acclaimed artists.
