Art Hopping

By Julia Beizer

Logan Circle's galleries are some of my favorites around here -- reliably hosting some of the edgiest and most thought-provoking exhibitions in town. The shows this month are likely to be no exception and this Saturday is one of your best chances to see them.

The galleries will stay open until 9 p.m. for a coordinated reception. The highlight of the night is clearly Ledelle Moe's "Memorial (Collapse)," an installation of large-scale sculptures that has been housed this summer in the window of a vacant storefront at 1520 14th Street. Passers-by have been able to see the colossal structures (in the shape of human heads) through the window, but Saturday's reception is the one time the space will open up to the public so visitors can see the works up close.

Also on view during the reception are new works by William Wegman (of Weimaraner fame), funky scale-like paintings by Teo Gonzalez and an exhibit loosely inspired by Kevin Bacon.

This interactive map directs you to the participating exhibitions. Most galleries will be open from 6-9 p.m., but some intend to close at 8:30 p.m., so I'd get your gallery on in the 7 p.m. hour.
