(October 25) THE ART OF TEA Craft and design come together during The Art of Tea, a tea party, demonstration and exhibit at the VisArts Center in Rockville, Maryland on Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4. The show gathers some of the most fantastical pots imaginable: a combination of form and function that draws artists, collectors and drinkers from around the world. The event will raise money for the VisArts Education and Outreach Program which has served the D.C. region for more than twenty years.

(October 22) NoMa INSTALLATIONS If you're in D.C.'s NoMa - "North of Massachusetts Avenue" - and find yourself surrounded by beautiful objects, you're not seeing things. The Cultural Development Corporation fills vacant storefronts with Construct: a Space Transformed, opening tonight with an Art Walk and reception from 5 to 8 at 1200 1st Street in Northeast. These temporary art installations hope to attract eyes and traffic to the NoMa Business District. You can take a cell-phone tour created by the artists and view the displays which will be up for the next two months. Call 202-292-1385 for the cell phone tour, or meet the artists in person on November 5th from 5 to 6pm and November 19th from noon to 1pm. RSVP to karyn@culturaldc.org karyn@culturaldc.org.
