Starting at 6:30pm, guests can join us for a reception and a DIY activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Members from Washington Sculptors Group will teach guests Notan, an Eastern design principle that incorporates some of the patterning and compositional elements seen in the artists' work. Guests will be able to create a take-home piece of artwork.

At 7pm, our exhibiting artists will each give a short artist talk followed by an audience Q+A. Following the artist talks, guests can mingle, talk to the artists, and continue working on their DIY projects.

“Clowning Around” Art Exhibit

Exhibit Dates: August 4 - 27, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, August 4 from 7-9pm

Clowns have been the subjects of paintings and graphics for centuries. Clowning Around is an exhibit that reveals local artists’ inner clowns through art in fun, playful, sadistic, comedic, and tragic ways. Clowns have always evoked a variety of emotions from people. Many people are happy clown believers, drawn towards fanciful circus graphics or sympathetic weeping hobo clowns. Others prefer their clowns to be sinister figures lurking in dark alleys. Whether it’s a childlike whimsy or journey into a carnival of crazy clowns, it’s your world to explore.

Join us in this romp with a truly American genre at the opening reception on Friday, August 4 from 7-9pm to enjoy the unveiling of the exhibit and meet the curators, artists, and other art appreciators.

The Clowning Around art exhibit is at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are: First Thursdays (April-September) 12-9pm, Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.

For more information, please visit www.DelRayArtisans.org/exhibits or contact the curators Gordon Thomas Frank (gordonfrank666@gmail.com) or Zade Ramsey (zade.ramsey@gmail.com) or Director of Curating Kathy Turner (Curating@DelRayArtisans.org)

Dir. Joshua Bonnetta, J.P. Sniadecki (2017), US, 94 minutes.

Thursday, October 12, 6:30 pm. Free

From Harvard University’s Sensory Ethnography Lab, known for pushing the boundaries of aesthetics and nonfiction films, El mar la mar explores the US/Mexico Sonoran desert border with an experimental approach that at times borders on total abstraction while touching on the narratives and experiences of the migrants and border patrol agents that traverse the region.

Hispanic Heritage Film Series: Aquí y Allá

Thursday, September 21, 6:30 pm. Free


Dir. Antonio Méndez Esparza(2012), US/Spain/Mexico, 110 minutes.

Aquí: Pedro returns home to a small mountain village in Guerrero, Mexico after years of working in the US. He finds his daughters older, and more distant than he imagined. His wife still has the same smile. Having saved earnings from trips to the US, he hopes to now finally make a better life, and to pursue his dreams of starting a band. Allá: The villagers think this year’s crop will be bountiful. There is also good work in a growing city an hour away. But the locals are wise to a life of insecurity, and their thoughts are often of family members or opportunities far away, north of the border.
