November Notes

by Kathleen

It’s November and as much as I would love to slow down, and burrow into the sofa for a cozy evening I am very much aware that the holidays will be upon us in no time! The cooler weather, festive decorating and shopping have me excitedly anticipating the holidays. I thoroughly enjoy savoring the fall season, and keep the Christmas decorations put away until after Thanksgiving; remember when retailers used to honor this philosophy. Listed are a few items on my list to get into the spirit of the season, along with the opening of a new gallery in Abu Dhabi and an exhibit in Washington DC.

  1. Pears for preserves which will be gifts for those who stop by Heath during the holidays.
  2. Exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts
    Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today, on view until January 21, 2018
    1250 New York Ave NW
    Washington, D.C. 20005
    202-783-5000
    Magnetic Fields places abstract works by multiple generations of black women artists in context with one another—and within the larger history of abstract art—for the first time, revealing the artists’ role as unrecognized leaders in abstraction.
  3. Louvre Abu Dhabi, a new modern museum in Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi.
    The Louvre Abu Dhabi is opening this week in the cultural district in Saadiyat Island. Artwork from around the world will be showcased here to assist in bridging the gap between eastern and western art.

Get into the season,
