ABOUT GEORGETOWN SECOND SATURDAY

Georgetown Second Saturdays offer monthly promotions and special offers from Georgetown small businesses. Shop local online, in-store, or outdoors.  

Some communities designate a day for specific community events, with the goal of encouraging the population to get active, explore their community, and support small and local businesses. During the pandemic, Saturdays have tended to be the best day for Wisconsin Avenue small businesses, so we will focus efforts on this day once a month. These events are often used for art walks, in-store events, sales, or other special promotions.

I AM WOMAN by Linda Behar. Open June 5 - 27th.

 

Linda Behar is interested in the female form, specifically how it is manifested in different media and how it highlights the dissonance between “the expectations of society and an individual’s sense of self.” Body language, for Behar, is a visual form of communication that helps the viewer understand human behavior. The artwork for this exhibit is titled “I AM WOMAN” and is a poetical representation of the woman’s body. As Behar notes, her goal is “embracing the freedom to be herself.”

Susan Calloway Fine Arts | 1643 Wisconsin Ave NW

REJUVENATIONS: MY BOUQUET BY KAREN SILVE open now.

 

Inspired by Karen’s own tumultuous journey with cancer, recovery, and isolation - flowers, delivered in a continuous flow by friends and loved ones, became a symbol of hope and rejuvenation during the unforeseen year that was 2020. "I loved watching these expressive faces of the flowers as they opened up, then finally drooping, the petals drifted down to the floor like colored ashes. Ironically, another bouquet of flowers appeared on my front porch every time a few flowers in my bouquet died. I rejuvenated the vase by adding the new flowers to the old ones. It gave me a sense of hope, rebirth and renewal. It was so relevant." That such beauty could emerge from a year so terrible on both the micro and macro levels is astonishing.

 

"Eventually she began painting this bouquet éternel in luscious opulent acrylics on canvas—not literal depictions but composites of visions, memories, photographs, sensations, inhalations of revivifying fragrances borne on air and rising spirits: hydrangea, peonies, poppies, roses, and a dozen-dozen more, rendered in effulgent gestures that never spilt over into surfeit or indulgence, never overworked, but looser, freer, minimalist, luxuriant but also raw. The images are poetic, lyrical, narrative, rhythmic with brushstrokes broad and discreet—elegiac like the richness of life itself as it careens from peak to trough and back again. The flowers are neither feminine nor masculine, but inflected with gray tones that speak to human tenacity, not gendered posturing, like the shades of gray in daily life, bookended by our polarities." (Richard Speer, Karen Silve at the Confluence of Courage and Hope, 2021)
