New Gallery

ArtSpace 109 is a new gallery venue in the DMV.

The gallery is located at 109 N. Fairfax Street, 3rd level, Alexandria, VA 22314, Tel: 703.548.7729.

Their first show, titled “About a Dog” showcases the painting and drawings by the super-talented Ben Ferry. The opening reception and meet the artist is Friday, November 11, from 7pm - 9pm and the show runs from November 1 thru November 30, 2011.

Back in the good ole days before Eugene Robinson began the destruction of the visual arts coverage in the Washington Post (while he was editor of the Style section), a new gallery opening in the DMV would merit a little ink in the WaPo.

We'll see.

Meanwhile: How about it WCP?
