Saturday: two openings and a closing.  Also, three new calls for entry.

Pat Autenrieth.  Untitled study (electric grid), 2005, machine pieced, appliquéd and quilted, 26" x 33" (65 x 84 cm).

Saturday March 29
Harmony Hall Gallery– 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
In Thoughtless, Patricia Autenrieth creates work by stitching together mediums as disparate as photographs, fabric and rubber stamps. The end result resembles what most people recognize as a quilt.  An artistic pioneer, Autenrieth championed this medium long before it gained greater recognition in the art world through the advent of feminism and material studies.  Read more about Thoughtless here.

Catalyst Projects– 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Catalyst Projects will be hosting a closing party to celebrate their six month run at Studio 13 on the Monroe Street Art Walk.  The gallery owners will be shifting their exhibition strategy to a pop-up model. DC-based band These Quiet Colors will perform to mark the occasion.  For the complete line-up, click here.

Off Rhode Gallery– 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
To commemorate the gallery’s Amazing Marvels group show which elevates freak-show and circus acts to fine-art status, Night of a 1,000 Hot Dogs celebrates the banal and the freakish through ordinary food and uncommon art.  The gallery has requested advanced registration and a nominal donation prior to attending.  Registration information here.  

NOTE: The Brentwood Arts Exchange GMU & JMU student exhibition will NOT open this Saturday and is rescheduled for next Saturday, April 5
