This is the sixth year of Kristi Nimmo’s Art Club Show, entitled "Rendezvous with River Creek Artists," which will be held on from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21 at the River Creek Clubhouse. Guests of the River Creek Community are welcome.
To spice up the occasion there will be string ensemble Moonlit in the Sun, on hand to provide music to set the tone and mood. Nimmo says there will be two rooms “enlivened with the colors and textures of the work of 11 artists and a large group display.”
Artistic talent includes acclaimed artist Bob DaCosta who will be on hand with his paintings of scenes in China absorbed during his visit there last year. Gilda Montel will have “vibrant oil paintings.” The “charming and witty paintings of Leiann Quesinal.” Patti Koreski will exhibit her own crafted jewelry.
And Nimmo says, “We also have to look forward to the images of three talented photographers. It’s a great opportunity for adults and children to appreciate the community’s creative talent.”
From 2 to 6 p.m. Sept. 22, The Potomac Club in Lansdowne will host its annual Octoberfest in sync with the beginning of the 16-day festival in Munich, Germany. They are going all out this year with bratwurst; a Bavarian Dance Club and the Alte Kameraden Band. You can rumble to the polka, and there will be a beer garden and wine tasting tent. King Ludwig would be proud.
The kids won’t be neglected. There promises to be an animal toddler moon bounce, Jurassic adventure moon bounce and turbo tubs. The Kona ice truck will be on hand for the kids to “mix and create their personalized flavors” from something called a Flavorwave. I might like to try that myself.
