You may recall that last February we did a post about East City Art, a blog founded by editor Phil Hutinet in January, 2010, which documents the myriad of artistic activities happening in the Northeast and Southeast quadrants of the city. Now we are pleased to start bringing you East City Art’s weekly weekend event round up. The timing of this addition to the Bridge seems especially appropriate being that this week’s edition focuses on Brookland. We hope you enjoy these weekly round up posts!
Weekend East City Event Round Up: Brookland Ascendant Edition
Saturday October 12
Art Enables (1pm to 4pm)
A nationwide call for entry yields one of the nation’s largest showing of insider art in a single location. In its eighth year, Art Enables’ Outsider Art Inside the Beltway mixed-media juried group exhibition represents one of the most significant collections of the genre both in terms of its scope and variety. For more information click here. Art Enables Studio is located at 2204 Rhode Island Avenue NE
Catalyst Projects (6pm to 9pm)
Do not miss the opening of Catalyst Projects’ art gallery in the Brookland Art Walk. The inaugural group show’s sexily titled Wet Dreams explores untraditional methods of using watercolor, a medium often taken less seriously by students, curators and collectors alike. For more information click here. Catalyst Projects is located in the Brookland Art Walk at 716 Monroe Street NE, Studio 13
Brookland Beautification Call for Entry
This week, Dance Place, via the DC Office of planning, has announced the availability of a series of grants from $750 up to $5,000 for the beautification of the Brookland neighborhood. With the opening of so many creative spaces in the area, the grant could not have come at a better time. Funding is available to both artists and gardeners seeking to beautify the neighborhood. The deadline is November 27, 2013. For more information, click here.
