Argh matey! It’s pirate's life for me on the high seas! One day as Jeremy builds a sand castle on the beach, a pirate ship rows ashore in search of a place to bury the pirate’s treasure. Taken aboard as an honorary pirate, Jeremy learns the ropes of what it really means to be a swashbuckling (but smelly) pirate, and the pirates just might learn how to play soccer too.

Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Stephanie George: Dream Visions. This exhibition features hand-painted monoprints by Stephanie George, an artist whose work has been exhibited widely in the Washington, DC area. George has always been a vivid dreamer. Some years ago, she started journaling her dreams when she woke up. George was fascinated at the bizarre images that came to her, like people having a conversation at a table in the middle of the road. Sometimes it’s a whole scene or narrative, sometimes it’s just a word or two, and other times it’s just an image. While initially for her own contemplation, gradually George began using these images in her work, which conveys their primitive, primal and naïve nature. After painting on canvas for years, George decided to try capturing these fleeting images in hand-printed monoprints; this method seemed more in keeping with the essence of dreams and their ephemeral quality.
