First Friday is Here Again!
Friday, May 3rd (5:00-9:00pm)
Join us Friday May 3rd for the opening reception for “Making Connections” by “The Crit Group,” our featured exhibitors for May. Twenty-four Masters of Art graduates from American University have met monthly for 25 years, supporting each other in their art. Come by and see their exciting display; they have each brought 2 or 3 artworks to show us! Very interesting to see how their art-making is both so different and so similar! Music by Rachel Leyco (singer songwriter) on acoustic guitar, food, and a cash bar as well. A lovely way to spend a Friday evening!
