Tour Tudor Place for One Washington Dollar

February 14, 2017

Don't miss your chance to practice the frugality our founding father approved of: George Washington was born in February, and Tudor Place is celebrating him all month through artifacts, furnishings, and stories, all for just one "Washington dollar!"

 

Open every day but Monday, with tours beginning hourly. The day's final tour begins at 3:00 pm.

 

Tudor Place is D.C.'s only historic house museum with family ties to Martha and George Washington. Highlights of the Washington Collection will be on display as part of all  regular house tours and calendar programs. In the Parlor, see the folding camp stool that accompanied General Washington to war. See the elegant dining table ready for an imagined dinner during President Washington's administration, set with the rare Washington plateau, cut crystal, and Sèvres china used in the first presidential house. Learn about the close kinship between the Peters of Tudor Place and Mrs. Peter's grandparents at Mount Vernon, and savor the legacy that remains.

 

All for a dollar. Can't beat that. Check the link here to register for a date.

 

Tudor Place is located at 1644 31st Street in Georgetown.

Susan Calloway Fine Arts Hosts Rodgers Naylor Opening

February 10, 2017

Rodgers Naylor: The Café Life opens on February 10 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Susan Calloway Fine Arts.  

 

Adhering to a realistic yet painterly style, Naylor paints in an “alla prima” manner, which allows great flexibility in mixing colors and attaining soft edges, fostering a fresh, spontaneous approach to painting. For his upcoming exhibition, Naylor delves into modern day “café society”. In Parisian life in the late 18th and early 19th century, cafés were places of companionship as well as intellectual discourse, and often enough, just frivolous enjoyment. Though we don’t hear the term “café society” often now, the concept and its lifestyle are very much alive today. This exhibition explores the café as a gathering place for people of all ages and walks of life to break bread peacefully together, to enjoy the camaraderie, as well as that extra cup of coffee.  

 

The exhibition is on view from February 10 - March 11, 2017.

 

Susan Calloway Fine Arts is located at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown
