Neptune reopens in Bethesda, MD

David Wallace at Neptune

Gallery Neptune will reopen October 22nd in the brand new PeriPoint Building in downtown Bethesda, Maryland. PeriPoint has applied to become Bethesda’s first Silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building as certified by the US Green Council. It is designed by award winning architect Michael Belisle AIA. PeriPoint is located at 5001 Wilson Lane, at the busy crossroads of Wilson Lane, Old Georgetown Road, Arlington Rd. and St. Elmo Avenue.

The corner site has been a landmark in Bethesda since 1927, serving first as the Sanitary Grocery store, later as USO Headquarters during World War II, and most recently as a vacuum repair shop. Today, the 80-year-old structure has been renewed, embracing the 21st century while maintaining the defining geometry of the building’s early 20th century shell.

Opening Exhibition: “David Wallace: Begging the Question”
October 22 – November 15, 2008
Reception for the artist: November 1, 7 PM
Also open for the Bethesda Art Walk, November 14, 6-9 PM

But this is not...

There's a local fuss in Philly because when Gov. Sarah Palin recently showed up, protesters wearing "Sarah Palin is a Cunt" T-Shirts also showed up to greet her. The guy who makes these was on a Philly talk show yesterday and is apparently making a mint selling them.
