Took my first trip out of the country last week, to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Came back to D.C. to a slew of events to get prepared for. You should join me at a few of them (or all!).
July 26 - Text Before Texting: Handwriting Workshop @ Pleasant Plains Workshop 3pm-5pm (Free)
Do you find it hard to write when it comes to writing a hand written note, sign, or even a simple grocery list? In this day and age, we find ourselves typing more than practicing our handwriting. In an effort to celebrate the art of the hand-written page, we invite you to join us for an informal workshop hosted by Resident Artist, Danielle Scruggs who has been implementing handwriting in her latest artwork series.
Bring along a favorite passage of text, a poem, or a letter or note you’d like to transcribe. Also bring a notebook and some special papers or pens and we can all share (We’ll have some materials provided as well). Snacks will be on hand and feel free to bring along snacks/treats to share with the group!
July 27 - Good Life Collective presents The Sleeveface Project @ MOVA Lounge 8pm-12am (Free)
Join Good Life Collective as we celebrate our official launch!
We took one quirky internet meme, asked five photographers to put their spin on it, and decided to mix it up with a whole bunch of vinyl.
From 8 to 9 pm, attend a special meet and greet with our talented photographers, view their artwork, and enjoy drink specials on MOVA Lounge's rooftop sponsored by Bombay Sapphire East Gin.
Afterwards, DJ Supa Qool Quartermaine digs deep into the crates for a soulful (and filled) vinyl party.
August 2 - Reflexivity exhibit, curated by Allison McDaniel at Sanaa Fest @ Mt. Rainier Lofts (Free)
And in October, DDAY Collective will be curating a show at Pleasant Plains Workshop. Stay tuned for more details.
