At last year’s Hyattsville Arts & Ales Festival, I struck up a conversation with local glassblower Beth Hess at her Wunder Around booth, stocked full of colorful, beautiful pieces of blown glass. I was so curious about the glassblowing process that I kept asking Beth a bunch of questions like; how do these different colors appear and not bleed into each other? How are the shapes are made, etc. What is your sign? (Just to mix it up. 😉) All was going well until I noticed I was holding up the line, so we parted ways with so many questions left unanswered. I’ve been empty ever since, which is why I was elated when Beth reached out recently to let me know that DC GlassWorks and Sculpture Studio was having an open house. Glassblowing demonstrations and more opps for my questions-a-plenty? SO. THERE.
This past weekend, I got the chance to check out Rabbit Summer by playwright Tracey Conyer Lee at Joe’s Movement Emporium and wanted to take this time to recommend you check it out because it was so good, so timely and so well done. *And I just learned that at this Saturday’s 2pm matinee, the audience is invited to stay for a post-show discussion with playwright Tracey Conyer Lee, as part of the 2018 Women’s Voices Theater Festival! 👏
