If you just happen to be passing through Manassas, VA and need something to do.  Take a walk into the Candy Factory, a beautiful old brick building that many moons ago housed a thriving business that created decadent sweet treats but now is home to the Center for the Arts.  There you will find REmerging Technologies, a show that mixes talented artist using old school (really old school) & new school technologies.  The featured artist is Don Hurlbert, GC Schow & Strauss.  The show runs until September 19, 2013, so go check it out.  Of course, I took a few pictures click the link and enjoy… http://smu.gs/128j4hp

Aphra Adkins

I walked up the steps to the Veracruz Gallery not knowing what to expect not having ever been there before.  When I reached the landing, I saw art covering the walls that looked as if it were there to stay.  Then as I turn to my left there sat two racks of clothing. On them hung, dresses, skirts, tops, and bottoms.   Some in subtle grays alongside vibrant reds and blues. I loved the flirty dresses. I say flirty because I would wear one out on a date or to get a date ;-)!  Anywho, every clothing item there was made by the hands of Aphra Adkins.  Her pieces are amazing.  If you’re into fashion and want a piece that is unique and you don’t feel the need to see 10,000 other people wearing the same thing, you defiantly need to get in contact with Aphra Adkins. By the way, I took some pics, click the link and enjoy….http://smu.gs/11oQF6p

8th Annual DC Loves Dilla

I was gifted with the opportunity to attend the DC Loves Dilla concert last week Wednesday at the Howard Theater.  It was amazing.  I didn’t see the entire show (getting older – I requires – more sleep) but the acts I did see rocked it!!!!  The most amazing part is I’ve never seen or heard of any of them before, but now I know.  Sorry can’t remeber their names at the moment, however, I do have pictures from the night.  Click the link and enjoy… http://smu.gs/18ZGXw6
