(Aug. 8-Sept. 2) Stamp It Out
The Postal Service has been having a tough go of it lately, so what better time for someone to go ahead and reinvent the stamp? Stamp It Out opens today at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. Artist Audrey Schuster creates surreal landscape portraits with homemade stamps. They’re pretty small, but when united with other ones they form recognizable shapes. There’s an opening reception Saturday night.
