Ethereal Heist in Baltimore

This is an incredibly busy week for art in the region, but I wanted to make sure to highlight Ethereal Heist, which is part of the MFA Exhibition - MICA Graduate Thesis Show at the Maryland Institute College of Art Decker/Meyerhoff/Fox 3 Galleries in Baltimore.

The opening reception is Friday, April 13th, 5pm - 9pm and running through April 22, 2007.

As savvy collectors know, keeping an eye on graduate students' work is key to beginning or continuing an art collection. Details here. Work by Elizabeth Wade, Michael Sandstrom, Kelly Egan, Wonsun Shin, Nathaniel Rogers, Ramsay Barnes, Stuart Jackson, Jodi Lieburn, Jackson Martin, Lesly Deschler Canossi, and Michael Hurst.

Wanna go to a DC opening tomorrow?

The Mexican Cultural Institute, located in one of Washington's most beautiful buildings and boasting a really good exhibition space, as well as really good Mexican munchies for their openings, has an opening reception on Wednesday, April 11, 7pm for artist Beatriz Ezban titled "Unified Field: The Border" (Campo Unificado: La Frontera).

The exhibition is free, but you must R.S.V.P. to (202) 728-1675. In addition to the opening, George Washington University’s Ballet Folklorico and Los Quetzales Mexican Dance Ensemble will perform live music and will show you how to dance zapateado as they do in Veracruz. “Voces Veracruzanas,” which is a group of young musicians from Veracruz, will be performing Son Jarocho and Latin-American folkloric music

The exhibit will be held through April 29, 2007. The Institute is located on 2829 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009.
