I’m pleased to announce a very exciting opening Friday, Dec. 12 at the Arlington Arts Center, a fantastic converted elementary school now impressive arts venue on Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, metro accessible and with (gasp) parking. Exhibiting artists for this show about consumer culture, mass consumption, and ubiquity are:
Kathryn Cornelius, performance
Susana Raab, photography
Krista Birnbaum, graphics/prints
Cynthia Connolly, performance w/bicycle & postcard rack
Christine Bailey, drawings made w/heat-set photocopier toner
Carolina Mayorga, performance selling faux product line: lipstick
Joanmarie Turbek, installation w/ceramic cakes and boxes
This is not just one opening but more like ten because of a special event we’ll be hosting with local art scene-maker Philippa Hughes’s PINK LINE PROJECT.
TEE PARTY @ TIFFANY’s will run from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm on the evening of December 12. The event will include artist-made clothes featured in an unconventional fashion show: an actual tea party. Models will serve tea to gallery-goers seated at several small tables in the AAC’s Tiffany galley throughout the night.
Additionally, there will be live art-making: Using airbrush and artist-made decals, artists will create one-of-a-kind t-shirts for purchase by anyone attending.
Add to that the fantastic art on view in three shows:
WINTER SOLOS–featuring Philadelphia artists Alexis Granwell and Josh Rodenberg, transforming our Meyer gallery with architectural interventions
A SPATIAL DIFFERENCE–a show of new work by three of our fabulous resident artists, Jill Romanoke, Monica Stroik, and Sabyna Sterrett (go to http://www.arlingtonartscenter.org/studios to see their work!)
The Arlington Arts Center is located at 3550 Wilson Boulevard Arlington, VA 22201. I hope to see you there!
