Save the date for our annual Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser, September 21 – September 22 at the Alexandria King Street Art Festival.  When you buy a handmade ceramic ice cream bowl for only $15 at the Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser, not only do you get a free scoop of ice cream, but you also help to fund our amazing ceramics department!

Participants in the Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser can also enter free drawing to win ceramic artwork and an Art League gift certificate! Now that’s sweet!

When you match your ceramics!

Fun Facts: Last year we sold over 1,500 bowls, and over 1,173 scoops of ice cream were served (Superman was the kid’s choice winner)!

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.
