Free for all: Don’t let the rain stop you!

Those summer storms might have you down. But as Snowpocalypse proved, shutting yourself indoors because of the weather isn’t always the best choice. Here are some of the week’s best freebies, meant to give you the motivation to get out of the house.

Art is a Dialogue…?

Premiering this Friday is Undecided: A Dialog between Artist and Viewer.

The original titles will be revealed either upon purchase or at the exhibition’s closing reception. The opening reception is this Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Del Ray Artisans Gallery, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.

An Adult Show
