open studios and art sales this Saturday, Dec. 11, from 6pm to 9pm. Ponder Jill Romanoke's exquisite paper creations, peer into Van Nguyen's intriguing paintings, and enviously eye Paula Bryan's magnificent felted wool couture. Ms. Bryan's head-turning tunic-jacket pictured above is made from hand-dyed, felted wool. It is hanging in the main hall on the second floor of the Arlington Arts Center.
You can also see at the Arlington Arts Center the special exhibition Party Crashers: Comic Book Culture Invades the Art World. Here's an insightful review from Ode Street's top-ranked local news source.
After visiting the Arlington Arts Center, come down to Artisphere for the opening of the Party Crashers companion exhibit. The opening runs from 8pm to 11pm in the Terrace Gallery. The exhibit features fine artists influenced by comic art. Everyone likes a fine artist. Some very fine artists were out in Crystal City earlier this year.
If all this fine art gets you feeling refined, stay at Artisphere past 11pm for Peelander-Z playing "Japan pop action comic punk rock music." This Saturday night, the party is yours!
