Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster are hosting a workshop on the topic of “down-sizing” at their office on Lee Highway in Arlington on Tuesday, February 11 from 5-7 p.m., with an additional date on Tuesday, February 25.

Every great endeavor begins with a great plan. This workshop will give you the tools to design your plan. We have created a workbook with an extensive planning guide to enable you to design a personalized written plan for your move, and more than twenty pages of resources specific to Northern Virginia to help you along the way! These resources will help you to find the best people to assist you in your move, and help you get the belongings that won’t move with you into the hands of people who will value them.

The workshop format is a “guided group discussion” of the workbook, with a chance for the participants to ask their own questions, and special guest presenter Alexandra Fry of Orchestrated Moves will be joining us to share her many years of expertise in organization and moving.

We will be discussing three major themes:

Join us at Cody Gallery at Marymount University on Friday, January 17 from 6-8 p.m. to celebrate the opening of “Jennie Lea Knight: Women of Jefferson Place“! This exhibition includes a body of sculpture by Jennie Lea Knight that is best described as minimal in form, but not in process. At times stretching up to 9 feet in length, these wood sculptures show a mastery of precision in joinery and shaping coupled with a fastidiousness of craft.

Jennie Lea Knight was born in Washington, D.C. in 1933 and passed away in 2007. She received her art training in design and music at King-Smith School of Creative Arts and later graduated from the Institute of Contemporary Arts in 1951, where she studied painting with Kenneth Noland. By 1964, Knight worked almost entirely in sculpture, working occasionally on paper and canvas. Knight’s work can be found in many private collections and public institutions including D.C.’s Smithsonian American Art Museum and Phillips Collection.

This exhibition is the third in the series “Women of Jefferson Place Gallery” organized by John Anderson, independent curator and writer, Meaghan Kent, Curator of Exhibitions, Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, Florida and Caitlin Berry, Director of Cody Gallery. Previous exhibitions in this series include “Hilda Shapiro Thorpe” and “Mary Orwen“.

Should old acquaintance make some plans
To see a play or two
Should old acquaintance be distressed
Fewer plays in Ar-ling-ton

For Ar-ling-ton my dear
For Ar-ling-ton
We’ve lost so many theaters here
Fewer plays in Ar-ling-ton

And surely you’ll buy your ticket
And surely I’ll buy mine
Then we must travel to the show
And depart our Ar-ling-ton
