Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster are hosting an online workshop on the topic of “down-sizing” Wednesday, March 24 from 5-6:30 p.m. 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.

(This Community Post was written by Studio 10 Artists, a Creative Collaborative, and underwritten by Embracing Arlington Arts.)

After a dark year, we’re beginning to see a little light around us.

Over these past months, five local artists sought creative inspiration as a guide out of darkness into the light. These painters — Elisabeth Hudgins, Kat Jamieson, Linda Maldonado, Elise Ritter and Deborah Taylor — formed the Arlington-based collaborative, Studio 10 Artists, and met via weekly Zooms to discuss, explore and create a new exhibition entitled “Ambient Light.”

“Ambient” light is the atmosphere that surrounds and illuminates any environment. Using their own style, unique vision, and medium of choice (watercolor, oil, acrylic, collage and ink), these artists have interpreted ambient light in various ways: physical and spiritual; external or internal; real or imagined.
