Options 2005

Just had a good walkthrough of Options 2005 and I'll be writing a review for a local paper later this week.

Tonight I'll be at the The 12th annual cocktail reception and live auction benefiting Whitman-Walker Clinic.


Capitol Arts Network presents "125", a holiday art sale as part of the next Bethesda Art Walk, taking place at 4850 Rugby Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland.

The concept is simple: bring your art, up to five pieces (any media) to the gallery on October 29th, from 1pm to 4pm, along with the registration form and $25.

The night of the show, November 11th, all work will be priced at $125. If your work sells, you get $100, the nonprofit gets $25. No jurying, no hassle. Work can be framed, matted, and/or bin ready, or tabletop. Registration forms and more info can be found at www.capitolartsnetwork.com.

They will accept work until the gallery is full, so come early!

In just a handful of hours I'm receiving a lot of feedback on my old Video Biennial idea, including some great feedback from a Smithsonian specialist who informs me that the booths shouldn't use Lexan, but instead perhaps something along this Mylar polyester coating.
