More on Fraser Gallery closing

Jordan Edwards in the Gazette has some more insights into the recent and shocking announcement that one of the DMV's major art galleries, Fraser Gallery will close.

Read it all here. Just as I predicted, in a smart move, the owner will continue to do art fairs as a private online dealer.

I wish her the best.

Mirror art at ARTiculate Gallery

There's a cool upcoming exhibition opening at VSA's ARTiculate Gallery. The show, "Reflections" was inspired by local artist Bob Benson and his work at the American Visionary Art Museum.

Benson worked with the artists in the ARTiculate Program (which provides artistic and vocational training to youth and adults with special needs) to create "mirror art" using glass-cutting techniques in a variety of styles, and the artists have created a unique body of work.

The opening will take place on Thursday, March 10th between 5:30 and 7:30pm at the ARTiculate Gallery, located at 1100 16th St NW. The reception will be free, open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
