The Week Ahead…& Some Photos from the Past Week

CVS at 7th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, reopened last week after being closed for more than a month owing to water damage. 

Next door at the former Li’l Pub, Triple Candie finished installing their latest “curatorial riddle” – 655 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  For more, go here:

Continuing:  The Capitol Hill Art League member show, entitled “Labor of Love” runs through October 1 at the Frame of Mine Gallery, located at 545 8th Street, SE, on Barracks Row.  The following artists are featured in the show: Anne Albright, Tara Hamilton, Steve Kunin, Karin Edgett, Carol Williams, Carolyn Rondthaler, Karen Van Allen, Elin Whitney-Smith, and Karen Zens. The Art League invites you to visit the gallery when shopping at Frame of Mine as well as viewing it online at the Capitol Hill Art League website at:  The Capitol Hill Art League is a visual arts program of The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop.  For more information about the organization, visit the website at

And speaking of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, CHC is chagrined at not noting before the upgrade to the façade at 545 7th Street, SE.

The week ahead is the last week for Biker Barre, one of the earliest barre studios on Capitol Hill, as the owner pursues other opportunities. 

A close call for SE Library. Friday, the behemoth Linden tree at the corner of 7th and D Street, SE, lost one of its major branches – most of the limb is lying on the grounds of SE Library.  The city’s Ward 8 Arborist, Carlson Klapthor happened by on Sunday afternoon and said the tree had been hollowed out – evidenced by the cavity inside the fallen branch.  He thought the tree would have to be removed.  “The tree was likely killed by sidewalk work,” he said, noting that the adjoining sidewalk was “flat as a pancake,” and alluding to the removal of roots.  Surveying the tree, Klapthor said it had had a history of failure – the top was “blown out” and many dead or diseased branches had been pruned.  The tree’s presumptive and preemptive removal would be in keeping with its fate; construction on the $23 million renovation of SE Library is scheduled to start next year and anticipates the tree’s removal.  For more on DC Urban Forestry, go here:
