2013 Themes:


September 12 - Night of a Thousand Strings

From fiber art, finger knitting and yarn bombs to classical string instruments, this evening will have you tied up in the best possible way. Bring your string instruments and come play alongside professional musicians from the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra! Pinterest

 

October 10 - Abstract Expressions

It's all about free expression at this homage to Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and company. Wear your midcentury modern finest, make your own "action painting" and catch a vintage inspired fashion show. Pinterest
