This Friday, you’ll have a chance to see the artsier side of Georgetown hidden behind all the swanky stores and restaurants. The “Georgetown Gallery Gaze”, a new monthly gallery walk, begins on our campus, and extends to other parts of the neighborhood, giving you a chance to check out local art galleries.
Every third Friday of the month, anyone looking for a little bit more culture in their life is invited to amble along Wisconsin Avenue. This week, L’Enfant Moderne artists will be having openings in the alley of P Street, accompanied by live music. Across the street and next door, artists Heidi Hess, Ron Demetro, and Homayoun Yeroushalmi will be showing off their latest jewelry and oil paintings.
If you decide to travel southward, expect to be lured by a guitar into a small passageway along M St. where there will be art galleries featuring both well-known and newer D.C. artists. If you’re more into the international art scene, keep an eye out for the Parish Gallery, which will be showcasing many artists from Africa and the African diaspora.
For those who are a bit hungrier, or find European art to be more within their interests, Cady’s Alley will be featuring Austrian cuisine, and L’Eclat De Verre, a new French frame shop, will have its doors opens for passersby to explore the works of local artists.
With such a variety of D.C. artists participating, The Georgetown Gallery Gaze is set to appeal to the art lovers, music enthusiasts, and fine food addicts alike!
You can find more information about the event and participating galleries at the Georgetown Gallery Gaze website.
