Rot Hand: New Drawings & Prints by Adam Griffiths

Rhizome DC is temporarily transformed into a gallery space as Takoma Park artist & illustrator Adam Griffiths shows a selection of original drawings and prints.

Please join us on Saturday March 12th for an opening reception, featuring a unique performance of live drawing with music improvisation.  Better yet, Adam will be drawing with soldering iron on a 300-foot roll of thermal fax paper(!) to the non-idiomatic improvisations of the Creative Music Workshop Players. Its safe to say you're likely to see something you haven't seen before!

The Details:
: Saturday March 12th. Reception from 5-9pm. Live Drawing w/ Music at 7pm
Where: RhizomeDC, 6950 Maple St NW DC
Cost: Free

DC's Creative Music Workshop Players is an evolving collective of improvisers convened in early 2015. We meet weekly to play and to reflect on what we play. We come from a wide range of backgrounds and are constantly seeking to balance engaging one another on common ground while striving to challenge ourselves to experiment with new ideas and techniques. Individually and in various groupings we have played almost everywhere in the DC area, including Source Festival, the Kennedy Center, Sonic Circuits Festival of Experimental Music, DC Jazz Festival, Goethe Institut, Capital Fringe Festival, the Freer Gallery, the Embassy of Indonesia, Dance Exchange, Dance Place, etc. Several of the members are also quite active in supporting underground culture by organizing and curating performances at numerous venues in and around DC, including Union Arts, Back Alley Theater, and Rhizome DC.
