Tune in to Rosetta

Please tune-in to hear DMV artist Rosetta DeBerardinis' interview with Brooke Musterman on the podcast “” on Wednesday, August 17th @3pm.

Heading to this opening tonite

Tonight: Opening reception for three exhibitions in one place at Artists & Makers Studios!

DMV area artist and epic model Fierce Sonia, and my Cuban-American peeps, the painter-printmaker Ric Garcia have a show titled “Power: Words and Deeds” which "examines gender, power, struggle, whimsy and heroism" - I'm heading there tonight for the opening.

At the same time, if you join me, we can all check out also Teresa Jarzynski’s “Head in the Clouds: The Landscape of My Imagination.” She explores landscapes with a focus on clouds - cloudscapes!

And we can also enjoy Mark Howe’s “Elemental Perspectives: Visions in Gold”, which is work inspired by Rothko and Klimt.

Reception tonight 6-9 p.m. Exhibition on display through Aug. 25.
