Just found out that there is a "Real Housewives of Miami" show now... and that the three Cuban ladies in the cast are already making my peeps look bad.

That's Alexia Echevarria, one of the Cubans in the TV show and (I'm told) known in Miami as the Cuban Barbie.

Ay Dios Mio!

Ruth Trevarrow this Sunday

Painter Ruth Trevarrow "dares us to see the lush beauty in bare bones, with a collection of powerful shapes and lines distilled from skeletal remains."

Please join her at the beautiful Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria for the opening reception on Sunday, March 6 from 4 to 6 pm.

On Sunday, March 20 at 4 pm, Trevarrow will be joined by scientists from the Smithsonian Institution to discuss the relationship between her art and the bone collections that inspired the works in the exhibit.

I think that this artist is one of great "undiscovered" jewels in the DMV. Don't miss this show.
