WPG is excited to have two special Press Room Exhibitions in addition to our regularly scheduled October and November member and solo artist shows. In October, mark your calendars for Both Sides of The Brain, a travelling mezzotint portfolio, in the Press Room and Deron DeCesare’s Old World and New: Apart though still a Part. The Opening Reception for both these shows (and the membership exhibition) is Saturday, October 6 ,1-4 pm. In November we have Before and After the Derecho, a solo exhibition by Yolanda Frederikse in the main space, and Carol MacDonald’s Line – Structure – Pattern in the Press Room. The Opening Reception for these exhibition is Saturday, November 4, 1-4 pm.
In addition to our events, there are two fairs we’ve probably mentioned, but it doesn’t hurt to mention them again. First, is the 2nd ever (e)merge Art Fair, put on by the WPA. This fair focuses on under-represented artists and galleries “with an an energetic environment of collaboration and discovery.” This fair takes place at the Capitol Skyline Hotel in SW DC, October 4-7.
Later, in November, there is the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair. WPG will have a booth, and the full list of vendors is now online at their website. Check it out, get excited, and come to the Book Arts Fair November 16-18, 2012.
Finally, looking forward to the Winter season, Maryland artist members of WPG will join their mentors (or artists to whom they have been mentors) for Mentor/Mentee II at the Brentwood Arts Exchange. More details to follow, but know that the exhibition will run December 3-January 26 and the Opening Reception is Friday, December 7, 6-9 pm.
