One of District's Oldest White Oak Swamp Trees is Located at T Street Park, NW,

After first photographing T Street Park at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue at 17th and T Streets, NW, on Monday afternoon, 7 June and as as result learned that White Oak Swamp tree is one of the oldest in the District I returned on the following day to get better shots of the historic tree.

In fact, since August 2009, trees have been one of new ongoing themes.

Escape the Heat to Corcoran Gallery's Free Summer Saturdays

As reported in my previous Memorial Day Weekend posting, from 29 May through 4 September, the Corcoran Gallery of Art will be hosting its Free Summmer Saturdays 2010 series.

In an attempt to escape the heat and humidity ... I spent an hour or more, last Saturday, revisiting the Corcoran.

Click the image to view my Corcoran Gallery of Art (2010) photo album which includes images from my 19 June 2010 visit to Free Summer Saturdays at the Corcoran Gallery.

This Saturday, 26 June, there will be Sketching in the Atrium from 12 noon until 3 pm. All materials, including a live model, will be provided.

Rachel Horlick Completes 2nd Mural for DC's Golden Triangle BID

En route to and from the 19 June 2010 Free Summer Saturday at the Corcoran Gallery of Art I'd capture artist Rachel Horlick with friends and colleagues putting the final touches on her mural on the south facade of the Club Quarters Hotel and just around the corner from Café Soleil at 839 17th Street in NW Washington DC.

Horlicks’ patterned design is the second work of alley art commissioned by the BID, as part of their public art program. Last year, Horlicks' funky art was added to Luigi’s Alley on 19th Street near M Street NW.

While events associated with Crystal City BID including a Public Art/Public Spaces series has been amongst my most prolific themes, in the past, there has not been as much 'public art' activity in the downtown DC BID organizations as has been the case with Crystal City BID. Now that Golden Triangle BID is promoting and commissioning more "public art" I'll keep my eyes and ears opened for future projects.

As I always like bringing attention to Public Art In Public Spaces.

Tony Gallo's Photography Exhibit at the 18th Street Penn Camera

I first noticed a photography exhibition at the Penn Camera on 18th Street in NW Washington DC in late May 2010 when I stopped in to pick up a lens cover. While I did not take any photos of the Antoinette Charles exhibit it has stuck in my mind.

So when I returned to the Penn Camera at 1015 18th Street, NW, last Friday afternoon to purchase another lens cover for the second camera I inquired if I could photograph the current exhibition which features the work of Tony Gallo.

If you are interested in exhibiting your photography at a Penn Camera store contact them by email.
