A display of 13 artistic photos of Westover — a tony shopping district in Arlington, VA — is now on display at the Westover Public Library. The show features a lot of the favorite hangouts of the area, including Lost Dog Cafe, Ayers, the Westover Beer Garden and others.
Over the past few years, artistic photographer Rick Black has been compiling a portrait of the neighborhood as well as other parts of Arlington, VA, and nearby Falls Church, VA. You can see many of the artistic photos in our online store: Arlington photo paintings.
A reception will be held this Saturday, November 22, from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Westover branch library. Check out our latest news item for details.
The Amichai Windows
The initial design phase of The Amichai Windows, a limited edition of 18 poems by renown Israel poet Yehuda Amichai, is nearing completion. We soon plan on starting a blog to detail the process of this five-year-long project. Each of the poems will be accompanied with archival photos and original artwork, including gold leaf and hand papercuts by Deborah Band. We will only be producing 18 copies of this book, each poem letterpressed and featured in its own protective triptych covering.
