Friday ARTnights: Working from the Figure


Working from nude models, this is an adults-only, uninstructed, monitored, 3-hour walk-in, drawing session. It is highly suggested that those who attend have at least some basic or prior drawing experience from the life model. The model usually poses for an extended period in the same pose so that an artist can render a completed piece and at times we will extend a particularly good pose for multiple sessions. You are free to paint or draw in a medium of your choice. The event is inclusive and welcomes both beginners and practicing, professional artists. Expect a warm, supportive, and engaging atmosphere to further develop your figure drawing skills.

Participants are encouraged to help each other and advise, as well as bring snacks or refreshments to share. $15 drop in fee-- Easels, tray tables, and drawing boards are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Call (202) 547-6839 for more information.

January- August Dates: 1/15/16, 2/5, 2/19, 3/11, 3/18, 4/1, 4/15, 5/6, 5/20, 6/3, 6/17, 7/1, 7/15, 8/5, 8/19 -- 6:30-9:30pm

Staged Reading of Thomas Geoghegan’s play MONTICELLO

Monticello has its premise in a historical fact: Thomas Jefferson did invite students from the University of Virginia to dine with him at Monticello. In 1826, the last year of Jefferson's life, Edgar Allan Poe enrolled at the university. What might have happened in an encounter between Jefferson and Poe? Geoghegan’s play – set on July 2, 1826, which was two days before the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence – offers an answer.

One of the key questions of the play is the battle over the legacy of Jefferson and his famous Declaration, specifically on the question of slavery. Slaveholders in the Virginia legislature -- including Jefferson’s violent nephew Randolph – demand a statement that "clarifies" the Declaration to declare that slaves are inferior beings. (They dangle an offer for the State of Virginia pay off all of Jefferson’s debts and save Monticello.) Two of Jefferson's slaves, Abby and Frederick, try to sneak in a different draft that announces that a dying Jefferson has decided to free all his slaves. His daughter Martha wants to please everyone, but Sally Hemings might have the final word. Monticello is a play of ideas and poetry that grapples with one of the most revolutionary documents in political history.

We Happy Few Productions presents "CHALK"

At its simplest, CHALK is a story of motherhood. A wise judge draws a chalk circle on the ground to determine the true mother of a contested child. However, it's also a story about revolution and rebellion. It's about the choices we are forced to make for ourselves, for our families and for the causes we believe in. It's about the working class and the wealthy, justice and family, duty and survival. In an ever-changing world where nothing is black and white, how can we judge what's right?

Show runs 6/22/2016 to 7/9/2016 at 7:30 PM with a 2:00pm matinee on Saturdays $15

We Happy Few

We Happy Few was founded by Hannah Todd and Raven Bonniwell at the beginning of 2012. Our mission is to present stripped down, small cast, ensemble productions with a group of talented artists, providing unique perspectives on classic texts.

Acqua Al 2

Reservations • 202.525.4375

The original Acqua Al 2 came to life in Florence in 1978. Over the past 36 years, the restaurant has become an intimately loved dining establishment by world travelers, local Florentines, and international celebrities.  In 2010, Ari Gejdenson, after being a part of Acqua al 2 in Florence, decided to move home and open in Washington DC.  With the help of childhood friend and fellow DC native, Ralph Lee, he opened the doors of the Acqua al 2 in Eastern Market, just six blocks from where he grew up.  The internationally-loved restaurant uses the same menu as the Florentine original, and brings to the city the same true Italian dining experience as one would encounter on the Piazza della Signoria.

Gejdenson landed in Florence after leaving high school to play soccer overseas.  There, the young ex-pat opened an American-style restaurant, known as Ari’s Diner, just steps from Acqua al 2.  Lee, fresh out of playing collegiate soccer for JMU, moved out to Florence to help him operate it.   Gejdenson and Stefano Innocenti, owner of Acqua al 2, struck up a fast friendship as they compared stories and shared tips from across Via Ghibellina.  The two partnered up and Gejdenson took over as Chef at Acqua al 2 under Innocenti’s tutelage.  Years later, Gejdenson came home to open in DC while Innocenti continues to operate both Acqua al 2 and the American Diner in Florence.

The restaurant offers a unique selection of Assaggio (literally meaning “taste”) chef’s choice samplers. Guests can try a sampling of three house salads with the Assaggio di Insalata, while the Assaggio di Dolci offers guests a taste of four sweet house made desserts. But their most popular are the Assaggio di Primi, a chef’s selection of five unique, fresh pastas and the Assaggio di Secondi, which features tasting portions of three of their most popular steaks, ranging from the popular filets to the unique Controfiletto al Pepe Verde, a hand-carved New York steak sautéed and topped with a green peppercorn, brandy, Dijon mustard and cream sauce.  Whether guests dine a la carte, or choose to customize their own menu for private events, Acqua al 2 prides itself on the execution of an authentic dining experience.
