Opera on Tap is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to break down the stereotype that opera is a stuffy or elitist art form by bringing it to local bars, restaurants and arts institutions. Singers let their hair down and bring the audience into what feels like an after-hours backstage party, singing some of opera's best known and little known pieces in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
13FOREST is especially proud to bring Opera on Tap to the community under the auspices of a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council. The event is free and open to the public, although donations to the singers are appreciated and encouraged.

Out of Thin Air
An artist reveals a certain element of magic by pulling lines and forms from the mind. The process evades words and the results create action in the world.


CW Roelleis a master illusionist. His black steel wire sculptures float vertically like highly detailed line drawings of people, objects and events. When exposed to the play of stationary light or sunlight, they cast shadows that double their images and create the sensation of depth.

13FOREST Gallery is pleased to presentOut of Thin Air, an exhibition of new sculptures by Roelle that playfully explores how that realm of thought is made tangible through the creative process and the environment. The subjects will include sleight of hand, levitation, and other tricks of the magician's trade.

We invite you to join us for the opening reception onFriday 9/19, from7-9 pm.  Read more about the artist here.
