Art Enables (1pm to 4pm)

A nationwide call for entry yields one of the nation’s largest showing of outsider art in a single location.  In its eighth year, Art Enables’ Outsider Art Inside the Beltway mixed-media juried group exhibition represents one of the most significant collections of the genre both in terms of its scope and variety.  For more information click here.

Art Enables Studio is located at 2204 Rhode Island Avenue  NE

Catalyst Projects (6pm to 9pm)

Do not miss the opening of Catalyst Projects’ art gallery in the Brookland Art Walk.  The inaugural group show’s sexily titled Wet Dreams explores untraditional methods of using watercolor, a medium often taken less seriously by students, curators and collectors alike.  For more information click here.

Catalyst Projects is located in the Brookland Art Walk at 716 Monroe Street NE, Studio 13
