Rousseau reviews

Dr. Claudia Rousseau has a couple of really good reviews in The Gazette (which is owned by the Washington Post) here.

The Wapo, since they own The Gazette, often reprint Gazette articles in the WaPo, but have never re-used an art review, which I find odd, considering that Dr. Rousseau, an award winning writer, is one of the most talented art writers around and already in their employ.

It's a good thing that Mark Jenkins is doing a GREAT job at the WaPo since he took over the freelance arts coverage job from Jessica Dawson, but one would think that once in a while the WaPo would augment the visual arts coverage with a Gazette review here and there.

If you don't get it... you don't get it!

The third edition of (e)merge takes place October 3-6, 2013 at the Rubell Family's Capitol Skyline Hotel, in Washington, DC.

Wanna go to an opening tonight?

There's an artist talk at 8PM.
Common Ground Gallery.
150 Gibbs St.
Rockville (part of Rockville Center).

There’s a metro stop nearby, and also a big parking garage close by. 

Also a ton of great restaurants and bars in a very pedestrian friendly zone - if you haven't been to the "new" Rockville downtown in a while, prepare to be surprised.
