In The Know

Isabel Manalo at Addison/Ripley Fine Art

June 21, 2016

Addison/Ripley Fine Art presents their third exhibition of work by artist Isabel Manalo. "Unscripted, Naturally" focuses on the artist's exploration of language and pattering in combination with her recognizable, unique presentation of the abstracted landscape. 


The exhibition brings together the artist's love for language, calligraphy, collage and the process of abstract expressionism all together in this new suite of paintings as a dedication to her cross cultural heritage and identity as a Filipino American. 


"Unscripted, Naturally" will be on view at Addison/Ripley from June 3 - July 16, with an opening reception scheduled for Saturday, June 11, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.


Addison/Ripley Fine Art is located at 1670 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.

Celebrate 75 Years of Dumbarton Oaks Park June 4

June 1, 2016

Celebrate 75 years of Dumbarton Oaks Park Saturday, June 4, 2016.


There are several ways to access Dumbarton Oaks Park. Many or most people take a short stroll downhill along an asphalted pedestrian-only lane, Lovers’ Lane, which descends from R Street NW in Georgetown.


Lovers’ Lane is located approximately 200 feet east of R Street and 31st Street NW.  Lovers’ Lane separates Dumbarton Oaks estate from Montrose Park and is signposted by a green-on-white wooden plaque reading,  “Dumbarton Oaks Park, Open Dawn to Dusk.”  The lane descends one-fourth of a mile to the Park entrance at the bottom of the hill.
