Would you like to support local artists and a local charity all in one night? Sounds pretty awesome to me.
The Art Registry is hosting an art exhibition and fundraiser to benefit Dress for Success on Thursday evening. The event will feature seven female artists (six are local) whose work will be up for sale at the event. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20, and the cost include hours d’ oeuvres, wine, and of course, the opportunity to help a great cause.
The artists to be featured are: Joey Manlapaz, Anne Marchand, Leah Matthews, Karen Smul, Sandy Wexler, Catherine White, and Shawn Yancy (Fox 5 News Anchor).
The event will be on Thursday from 6-9 PM at the the Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar in Dupont. For more information call 703-798-8717.

The Crystal City BID’s ARTFUL Program, which hopes to share with people the influence that art can have over public spaces, is currently exhibiting Lumnious by Washington, DC -based artist Anne Marchand. Marchand’s Luminous exhibition features eight large, mixed media canvases inspired by a combination of mystical poetry and images taken from the Hubble Space Telescope – where “art and the universe merge”.
Luminous is open until April 26 and is supported by The Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with Vornado/Charles E. Smith.
The exhibition is located at 2231 Crystal Drive.
There is also an opening reception for the exhibit tomorrow, March 24th – Please RSVP at rsvp[at]crystalcity.org.
