art exhibit at Piola in Rosslyn
"Juxtapositions," an exhibition of paintings by local artist Donna Lomangino, is on display at Piola in Rosslyn through Sept. 3. The exhibition includes quirky representations of famous historical figures. See Queen Elizabeth drinking a Corona! How about Napoleon war-gaming with a PS3, or Columbus heading for Manhattan? Marie Antoinette sporting a Chanel bag! Anne Boleyn demanding a wedding ring is quite amusing.
We suggest enjoying this exhibition along with a Napoli pizza, which combines anchovies, fresh mozzarella, black pitted olives, sun dried tomatoes, basil, and tomato sauce. Discerning art critics are likely to choose the Mantova, a pizza with carpaccio (thinly sliced raw beef fillet), brie cheese, arugula, fresh tomatoes, tomato sauce, and mozzarella.
