Peregrine Honig

Went out gallery hopping yesterday, as it was the perfect autumn Friday for it, and the Dupont Circle galleries had their usual first Friday gallery openings going on.

The best show that I saw on the night were the terrific drawings by Peregrine Honig at JET Artworks. I will return to this young artist next week if I have time, but let me say right now that her original drawings, going for under $1000 each, are a steal for such a young artist already in the collection of the Whitney and the NMWA. The exhibition runs through Nov. 13, 2005.


Unlocked: Open Exhibition 2005, juried by Andrea Pollan, and presented by The Arts Council of Fairfax County through December 2, 2005 at the Verizon Gallery of the Northern Virginia Community College. The openingr reception is next Thursday November 10, 2005, 7:00 - 9:00 pm with Pollan's remarks at 7:45PM.

I juried this show a few years ago, and if you haven't been to this gallery, it is a nice space in the heart of Annandale.
