(Dec. 12-31) A cross-continental field

A local artist and one from England recently met and realized they shared a passion for printmaking and walking. They took a few long strolls in each other's neighborhood and created some art based on the landscapes and maps they encountered. Field of Vision: Two Printmakers, Ten Walks, Two Countries is actually showing in two countries, but if you can't make it over to the UK the work is on display at Washington Printmakers Gallery in Silver Spring until the clock strikes 2012.

The award-winning Finish feature about the French port city tells the story of a young African refugee who strikes up a friendship with an older bohemian shoe shiner.
