Free For All: Astrology, art and more!
Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter’s “Cheney-Bush-Rove,” an answer to Zeitgeist II
Maybe yesterday’s Leonid meteors got you seeing stars, looking to the sky and wondering why you don’t partake in something like this more often. Step one: lets get you a free astrological chart. You can get this online by heading to ASTROLABE’s website.
Next step: head to the DC Astrology Meetup this evening, at 7:30 p.m., at Tono Sushi Upstairs (2605 Connecticut Avenue) to meet with local astrology students and share knowledge about the resources available throughout the region. All levels of experience are welcome, so don’t feel frightened by your ignorance with the sky. It’s also a great opportunity to grab some sushi.
CAG Art Weekend
Maybe you didn’t know that Georgetown had a thriving art scene. Well, this weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to see a large portion of Georgetown resident artists’ talent put under one roof: the former Smith and Hawken space at 1209 31st Street. From November 19th through the 21st, the Citizens Association of Georgetown will bring together a show of more than 20 Georgetown artists’ paintings, photographs, sculptures, and mixed media.
The opening reception will run from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, where Govinda Gallery owner Chris Murray will talk about the history and evolution of the Georgetown art scene. The showing will also be open Friday from noon until 8:00 p.m., and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
A little over a year ago, the Nevin Kelly Gallery hosted their first “zeitgeist” show, which was titled “Under Surveillance.” That exhibit had twelve artists present responses to the idea of “the increasingly diminishing zone of personal privacy available to any of us as we are constantly under surveillance.” Zeitgeist II, which opens this Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at the Nevin Kelly Gallery (1400 Irving St. NW, Unit 132), takes a similar course of action but in search for an answer to the question: “What’s important now?”
Any activity that has one of the three following things, for free, can be both enjoyable and socially acceptable: wine, cheese, and chocolate. This Saturday at Weygandt Wines in Cleveland Park there will be a wine and chocolate tasting, where you’ll get the chance to sample three different kinds of handmade chocolates along with wine specially selected to bring out the flavors. There may be no cheese, but this is still worth the trek to 3519 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Wine and chocolate. And free! The event will run from noon until 4:00 p.m.
