A while back I discussed about a new independently owned commercial fine arts gallery that would be opening in the Tysons Corner area of Virginia.
Although construction is still going on, it looks like sometimes in February will be the grand opening of Habatat Gallery Virginia, owned and run by Lindsey and Jay Scott.
This is a "second" Habatat, as the gallery has been around since 1971 and there's another one in Florida. The galleries’ focus is on contemporary art, national and international, in a variety of materials, but certainly with a recognized focus on glass.
In fact, Habatat has already partnered with the American University Museum at The Katzen Arts Center to bring an exhibition titled "Contemporary Glass: Beauty and Innovation" at the end of this month.
This will certainly add a new "power" gallery to the Greater DC area art scene, and even more, continue to focus a lot of attention on the area as one of the "glass" hot spots.
