"Art Beat" with Sabri Ben-Achour
(Oct. 11-Nov. 13) DIASPORART
The East African diaspora is reuniting - well, four artists are anyway - at DC Loft Gallery on U Street to present paintings, prints and sculpture through mid-November. The bluntly-titled East African Diaspora Art blankets the Loft in colorful abstract patterns and sculptures that give a nod to the more established visual traditions of the region.
If you answered pictorialism, Phillips Collection has the gallery for you. TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art highlights the critical movement that ushered photography from plain portraiture to subjective art through the use of soft focus, filters, and experimental printing processes. Photographs from the movement’s seminal figures are on display until January.
(Oct. 12-Nov. 14) A FOX ON THE FAIRWAY
And there’s A Fox On the Fairway at Signature Theatre in Arlington. Playwright Ken Ludwig’s farcical take on the English romps of the 1930s and 40s plays something like a classy version of Caddyshack tomorrow through November 14.
Background: Instrumental version of Teardrop by Massive Attack
