Everyone knows you can’t beat the shopping in Old Town Alexandria. But what if there was a way to make it better? Say, if you could designate your local purchase to benefit The Art League?

[button-blue url=”http://www.theartleague.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Shop-Local-The-Art-League-Inc.pdf” target=”_self” position=”left”]Download the Give Local form[/button-blue]From Saturday, November 30 to Tuesday, December 3, if you shop at any of the Alexandria small businesses below, part of your purchase can go to support The Art League! Just download the Give Local form here, print it out, and hand it over when you make your purchase (we’ve already filled in The Art League’s name for you, but any nonprofit is eligible.) If you don’t have a printer, we’ll have some copies on hand in the Gallery this weekend. Shop Local Week 2013 is hosted by Think Local First DC, the Old Town Boutique District and Causetown.

As an added bonus: you can park for free on Friday, November 29 at all Alexandria parking meters and in all city-owned parking lots. Lots of Alexandria shops are offering Black Friday deals, which you can find at visitalexandriava.com.

So this weekend, come to Old Town and Del Ray, support local businesses, and support The Art League’s outreach programs to boot! A list of participating Alexandria businesses is below, but new shops can join anytime, so check here for the full and up-to-date list.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
