ArtsMedia News Returns

The second season of the TV show ArtsMedia News returns in a couple of weeks, and we'll be videotaping a segment next week.

As some of you know, I am the talking head (or often voice) discussing the Greater DC area art scene, doing reviews of area shows or interviewing DC area artists and curators.

The show airs on Thursdays at 8:30PM and and Saturdays at 8:30AM on the MHz TV Network.

In some of the next few segments, we'll be covering the Alexandria Festival of the Arts next weekend, and later on I'll be taking the camera crew (maybe next month) through some of the openings of the Dupont Circle galleries on their First Friday Art Walk.

Bethesda Artist Market Returns Sept. 11

On Sunday, September 11, 2005, from 10am-5pm, the Bethesda Artist Market returns to Bethesda Place Plaza, 7700 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda (one block from the Bethesda Metro stop). The event features artwork and fine crafts for sale by nearly 30 regional and local artists working in painting, photography, jewelry, turned wood, blown glass, metalwork and mixed media.
