A weekend of art, part one

If you’re not looking to go green this weekend, why not come out to Art on the Avenue this Saturday? It’s in Del Ray, just below Crystal City in Alexandria. My darling girlfriend and I will be there exhibiting our wares, along with about 300 other people who make a variety of things. While you’re peeping – and hopefully buying – some crafts, there’s musical performers, demonstrations, and a good amount of food to pick from. We’re hopeful we’ll be near the crabcake setup again.

Art on the Avenue is one of our favorite shows to do. Del Ray is a cute little neighborhood, there’s always a good turnout for the show, and the selection of things other vendors have are pretty universally good. We’ve been a little our of touch with other artists this year, but my darling girlfriend did exchange some mail with Caitlin of Rebound Designs last week and we know she’ll be there as well, just to give you an idea of some of the other kinds of things you would see there. Beyond mirrors and purses there’s paintings and pictures, wood and ceramics, papercraft and things I couldn’t come up with a category for if I spend a hour trying.

While I know poo poo will be horrified by the idea of coming into Virginia, it’s fairly painless even for the carfree crowd – Art on the Avenue will be running shuttles on the half-hour from the Braddock Road metro stop.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
