CCCA To Celebrate Local Artist,
Hear From Mayor Bowser

        Join us for the opening reception of Streets of Paris, an exhibition showcasing photographs by local artist Francesca Scott. In addition, we will hear brief remarks from Mayor Muriel Bowser who is scheduled to attend the reception. All are welcome to attend on Tuesday, March 3, at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm
. Light refreshments will be served. [Please note that the reception was originally scheduled for February 17, but, due to inclement weather was postponed.]

          Francesca Scott, a graduate of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and the Rhode Island School of Design, has been a photographer for over 30 years. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, she worked as staff photographer for several weekly newspapers in Washington DC, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. She also worked for Associated Press, United Press International, the Providence Journal and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Scott has served on panels with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Georgia Arts Council. Currently, she is instructing a digital photography class at the Chevy Chase Community Center for which she also serves as Site Manager.

        The exhibit at the Community Center will feature photos that Scott took while participating in a recent ten-day workshop in Paris, France.

        Beginning at 6:30 pm, there will be a reception in the Community Center's lounge, where the photographs will be on display. There will be an interlude, around 7:00 pm, for our regular monthly meeting, which will feature brief remarks by Mayor Muriel Bowser. Throughout the evening, neighbors will enjoy socializing in a relaxed setting surrounded by works of art.
