Scatter Brain Washington Gallery Shotgun Blast---Cause' Lafayette didn't make it confusing enough to get from one show to the other.

  • With Fusebox exiting, Project 4 enters to chaulk one up for U street in the DC gallery geography wars. Ted from Columbia Heights, who's leading project 4, called in to the Kojo Nnamdi show to announce their first show which opens February 27th.

  • Also on the WAMU's weekly broadcast, Lenny Campello let us know that Zoe Myers will be opening Bethesda's largest gallery on April 14th. Occupying 4720 Hemfin Lane right at the Bethesda Metro, the space will be able to accomodate seventeen foot wide paintings with a 1600 square foot floor.

    So. At last count: We've got Georgetown, 14th St., U St., Bethesda, and psuedo-7th St. scenes for five different types of scenesters. How about we all just meet back at Swann St guys?

  • Cronyism alert: Interviewed with the Arlington Arts Center today and got a sneek in on Deja Vu, an exhibition of 81 artists who previously showed work at the AAC before it's stunning renovation. The show opens tomorrow evening and is visit-worthy for Dakar Bienale artist David Carlson's video Whitey. In the lower level Jenkin's Gallery, Eric Sandberg's meticulous acrylic Concession is the most intimate show stealer you'll ever see.

  • Lenny gave a nice shout out to the mid city artists nudes/ no nudes discussion to end the Kojo Nnamdi show. Good to remind DCers that the passe covering of Lady Justice's tits isn't this city's only flesh problem

  • EDIT: The new trend of sketchbook blogs has caught on with DC artist Matt Hollis. Check out pioneer Warren Craghead's drawer. Break out the parallel port scanner and the wacom tablet y'all.

    EDIT2: Kate reminds us of the upcoming H street corridor. And let's not forget Dupont Circle, with Irvine and Conner Contemporary.

    Yeah, I don't know if Beck is really representing south east but we've got leeway.
