Washington Redskin Potatoes

lame PETA suggested Washington logo
Not only has PETA allegedly stolen my wife's October 9th idea about renaming the Redskins... cough, cough, but they have also come up with a lame new logo... that moon rock thing doesn't even look like a redskin potato!

Some other folks have jumped in the bandwagon and designed some even lamer helmet designs... Wait till you guys see the new logo that the Kid has been working on...

And PETA, please stick to throwing red paint on models wearing furs... cough, cough.

Art Scam Alert!

Friends in Motion – an exhibit by Marsha Stein

November 7 – 30:
Friends in Motion – an exhibit by Marsha Stein
Studio 21 Gallery Opening and reception on November 7 at 6pm.

You hear the music…the laughter…the shouts. You inhale the wild aromas of the food booths and flowers and feel the vibrations in the bright hot air.

For 22 years, Marsha Stein lived and painted in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. She was widely known there for her carnival scenes—stilt walkers, in particular. The island and its people demand a looseness of form and composition that is fitting of the uninhibited joy of the street festival.

Marsha majored in art at American University after a childhood filled with artistic expression. In St. Thomas, she was drawn to realism as a way of making the sights around her come to life in a new way. Her emotion-fueled expressionism easily morphed into the carnival scenes. To add to those disciplines of reality, she turned to classical drawing, studying in Florence for six months to discover the techniques of the Italian masters.

Back in Washington, Marsha has expanded her themes and techniques. She looks to combine the disciplines of classical drawing with the looseness of the Caribbean works in her portraits and landscapes.

Gallery Hours: Thurs-Fri 5:30pm-8:00pm; Sat 12pm-4pm

Studio 21 is located on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market – just steps from the Brookland/CUA Metro (Red Line).
