Greetings from Historic Anacostia
Four art exhibits open concurrently in Anacostia tonight, Friday July 30th beginning at 6:30pm.  The exhibitions are spaced out over three venues as follows: Honfleur Gallery (1241 Good Hope Road SE), ARCH Training Center (1231 Good Hope Road SE) and The Gallery at Vivid Solutions (2208 MLK Jr Ave SE).  At Honfleur, Ward 7 & 8 Artists will be featured at the gallery’s annual East of the River Juried show.  Upstairs see the works of local photographer Bruce McNeil who captured the beauty of the Anacostia with his lens. At ARCH see an ecologically inspired student photography show. Finally, at Vivid Solutions, an interactive exhibition featuring local bloggers and community residents will use personal photographs to construct a visual narrative of life East of the River.

Open Drawing at CHAW
On Saturday, head over to CHAW from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Brush up on your figurative skills and draw from a live model.  Easels, small folding tables, and drawing boards are available.  Feel free to bring any props to enhance the pose.  There is a $20 walk-in fee.   This is a great group of people and a great chance to meet many of the local working artists of the area.
