It's the first Friday of the month, do you know where your artsy friends are?
From 6-8 p.m. on the first Friday of each month, Dupont Circle galleries host a neighborhood open house of sorts, often giving out free wine and snacks to those who come in to browse their artwork.
If you're going to explore the galleries tonight, this map will give you an idea of what special exhibits are on display and where to find them. Of this list, I highly recommend Irvine Contemporary's "Celebrity Photographs from the Warhol Factory Years." I posted a full description of this show last week and I think it's totally worth a visit. Other than that, a new show on tap at Alex Gallery sounds good to me. The artists are both somewhat abstract and they use nature as a springboard for their work. You can preview works by Kim Abraham and Christopher Mason (complete with frames he makes out of found wood).
Many other Dupont galleries also participate, so, while you're gallery-hopping, check them out as well.
