Objects of Desire

Please join lots of us for the exhibition opening of "Objects of Desire" this next Friday, September 20, in Georgetown at Neptune Fine Art from 6 - 8 pm.
The opening is free and open to the public.  
The show was selected by the Washington Post's arts critic, Mark Jenkins, as one of the "Best gallery exhibits this fall" and was an "Editors' Pick: The Best Washington Art Shows and Events in September" in the Washingtonian.  In addition, a number of galleries in the Book Hill neighborhood will be open, so it should be a lovely opportunity to see art. 

Here are the details:

At the Katzen now...

American University's Fall for the Arts will bring neighbors, students, faculty, and friends together through art. It's on exhibition now through Oct. 5th at the Katzen.

The day will feature an afternoon of dynamic Courses and Workshops including orchestral conducting, the history of audio recording, a playwriting class, and a discussion of the role of interruption as a catalyst for art, to name just a few. Classes suitable for children are so noted in the descriptions. 

Surprise performances will pop up when you least expect them. The day will conclude with an early evening cocktail reception in the Katzen Arts Center and a Live Art Auction featuring local artists. 

The event is open to the public and an invitation is extended to local residents, patrons of the arts, parents of AU students, and the entire AU community.
