Your Sunday Instruction: Consolidated Landscapes

If you’re like me, you usually get a late start on Sundays. So after you’ve slept in, made your coffee, grabbed some brunch, read the paper, had a nap…it’s time to get out of the house.

Lucky for you there’s Delicious Spectacle, with its closing party for Consolidated Landscapes featuring Brad Birchett, Travis Childers, Robert Long, Matthew Shelley, Jassie Rios and Renee van der Stelt.

These are landscapes and they are consolidated.

Sunday, May 5th, 6-8pm,1366 Quincy St., NW.

Opening Today: Beyond the Parking Lot at Artisphere

This new exhibit which explores land use and urban architecture includes two of my favorite local artists: Frank Hallam Day and Trevor Young. Through photography, Day often captures the alternate realities and meaning of place. Young’s paintings exalt everyday spaces in a way that questions their meaning. If the installation photos for this show are any indicator, the other seven artists in this show will have you thinking about the world around you in a more deliberate way.

BEYOND THE PARKING LOT: THE CHANGE AND RE-ASSESSMENT OF OUR MODERN LANDSCAPE, Curated by Cynthia Connolly, opening reception Thursday, September 6, 2012 from 7-10pm. Exhibit runs August 24 - November 4.
