Open House at Georgetown Galleries in Canal Square

Come see MOCA DC's current show: "A Celebration of the Figure V"
This Friday night is the regular 3rd Friday Open House for all galleries in Canal Square. Not many people know the heritage of this group, which started about 19 years ago this past May. In its heyday, there were about 9 galleries in and around the Square. Over time, it has been reduced to Alla Rogers galleries - her larger one and the Petite Gallery to the right. Then comes Parish Gallery, operated by Norm Parish for 17 or 18 years. A couple of years ago, Norm expanded his gallery into the space formerly occupied by Fraser Gallery, operated by Lenny Campello and his wife. They moved to Bethesda some years ago and maintained both locations until closing the Canal Square entity about 2 years ago. Next comes MOCA DC - founded by Clark some 17 years ago, and now operated by Dave Quammen for about 3 1/2 years. Cross-Mckenzie sublet space from Alla Rogers to open a gallery that specializes in ceramics. Last is the Smith-Parada gallery just above the steps at the rear of the courtyard.

So, come see what these galleries have to offer - in addition to the hors d'ouerves and desserts provided by the Sea Catch Restaurant.
