As February is heart health month, and we love Arlington, what better time to come together to celebrate and give back to one of our favorite Arlington charities?! The week before Valentines Day… We bring you the Fifth Annual Heart+Pints Bazaar!
Since we had another successful event last year, we have added even more local artisans and boutiques from Arlington and Northern Virginia! We hope to arouse your senses with food, fun and creativity and foster more community growth. Shop local artists photography, paintings, pottery, glass art, floral design, gift baskets and more while listening to laid back music and sipping drinks. Doesn’t that sound better than wresting people for trinkets for your sweetheart at the Mall or just popping on Amazon- boooorrring? Yeah, we thought so!

Marsha Lederman holds BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and is currently a freelance illustrator, designer and fine artist living with her family in Arlington. Recently she has returned to her love of sculpture and is working as a resident artist at the Lee Arts Center where she has been creating terra cotta sculptural pieces and kiln fired jewelry using PMC clays, which become solid metals such as bronze and most recently white copper which is reminiscent of pewter. PMC is made from recycled metals, and the pieces are finished with filing and burnishing. She often incorporates other materials, sterling silver, fresh water pearls or cubic zirconium. Yoga imagery and nature are the main themes she has been exploring recently. Her work includes books, greeting cards, nature, and logo work for both nonprofits and corporations and she loves to be able to add humor whenever possible. She also accepts commissioned portraiture: people, houses, and pets. Her media expertise is in watercolor, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, mixed media, ceramic sculpture and precious metal clay. www.marshalederman.com www.zazzle.com/marlederman
