Current Show: Language PaintingsPhilip J. Hardy / Michael Gibson: Closing Party January 27th 6:30 pm Two one-room exhibitions of painters who engage with words without including them in the image. Hard uses an illustrative style that frustrates meaning, taking on the colloquial and making referentless parables. Gibson deconstructs visual semiotics, combining collage with observational painting. Potluck Birthday Bash at Tribes for YUKO OTOMO’s 60th!

Cal Folger Day – guitar and voice (bluesfolkgarde)

"Cal Folger Day was born and partly raised in our great nation's capital city. Now, in garretts and barrooms, she strums, whacks, hoots and hollers for congregations of customers most nights of the week. She'll release her first E.P. and tour the East Coast in March."

Jackie Skrzynski / Hila Sela Blood and Love: The Ties That Bind Exhibition from January 30th-February 27th Opening reception January 30th 6-9pm. Staged Reading February 20th 7-9pm The artists sharing their hearts with us this month at Tribes commit a rare act of optimism. They describe love. Parent, child, husband, wife, son, daughter, friend. These relationships of blood and love create ties that can be stretched to the point of breaking, or redoubled to a strength that lasts generations. Each of these artists holds an ultimately hopeful view of love, but they skirt sentimental notions of archetypal relationships.
