ToDo ToDay: “Paper Paradox” and Snow Specials


The “paradox” in “Paper Paradox,” a 10-artist exhibit at Carroll Square Gallery, is that the ultimate two-dimensional material can, with some effort, be teased into three-dimensional sculpture. When the paper in “Paper Paradox” is handmade, even “flat” isn’t flat. Consider Peter Winant’s “Chalk Lines,” (shown at right) in which pigment is carefully applied to paper made of abaca and cotton; the resulting buckles on the surface are heightened by the work’s placement in a glassless frame. Read more >>> The exhibit is on view Mondays to Fridays 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Carroll Square Gallery, 975 F St. NW. Free. (202) 234-5601.


Another snow day means more food and drink specials. Check out where to find happy hour all day, chicken noodle soup, free tater tots, and Monday brunch on Young & Hungry. (Jessica Sidman)


Due to the snow, many local venues are closed and events are canceled. Check our closings post to see what's happening and what's not.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
