Immerse in Crystalline at ARTECHOUSE

 

ARTECHOUSE, the gallery in Southwest DC known for its visually stunning and immersive digital art, just announced that its current exhibition, Crystalline, has been extended through February.  Even better, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to experience it!

Crystalline has transformed the gallery into a blue-hued haven intended to evoke calm and peace during a turbulent time.  Large scale projections on the walls of the main gallery and smaller ones in side areas engage and enchant as they encourage play.   Just about all of it is interactive, as the images change with viewers’ motions. Immersing into the depths of the color, even just for a little while, is a dazzling and delightful escape from the bizarre Covid world outside.

ARTECHOUSE is taking extra measures to ensure safety in response to Covid-19.  Capacity is limited, guests must wear masks,  directional signage helps social distancing, there are hand sanitizing stations, and cleaning and disinfecting takes place hourly.  You can read more about their safety policies here.

Crystalline is running at ARTECHOUSE through February 28, 2021.  Tickets are $19-24/adult, $12-15/child, $17-20/students, seniors, military & first responders (the lower price for online advance tickets, higher at the door).  Children under 4 are free.

Giveaway! Introducing “Time 4 Mom,” a New Subscription Box & Online Community for Busy Moms

 

I think it goes without saying that it’s an exceptionally busy time for most moms right now.  The pandemic has added a whole new layer of responsibility, activity, and stress to parenting — and to life, in general — that we often forget to take time for ourselves.

This is just what motivated Tracey Coates, a family lawyer, host of the podcast The Tracey Coates Show, and mom of two children to launch Time 4 Mom. The monthly curated subscription box and online community for busy moms was created to inspire personal growth, self-care, and a little bit of me-time.

“As a busy mom of two very active kids, a wife, a daughter, sister and friend, I’ve constantly got a dozen balls in the air trying to juggle motherhood, my family law practice, my marriage, and my podcast,” says Tracey. “Trying to make time for me often falls miserably by the wayside. I realize that we moms can’t be everything to everyone all of the time, and we’ve got to start prioritizing ourselves and stop landing last on our endless “to-do” lists, which is why I created Time 4 Mom.” 

 

What’s unique about Time 4 Mom is that subscribers get more than the monthly subscription offerings.  In addition to receiving a fun box of thoughtfully curated goodies each month, subscribers are invited to join a private Facebook community to connect with other amazing Moms, enjoy periodic book club meetings to spark meaningful conversations, and participate in monthly virtual trainings to inspire personal growth (starting January 2021).

October’s box is focused on the theme of refresh and recharge and includes products related to finding time for yourself and filling a need for self-care during the pandemic.  One item inside is a copy of the month’s book club selection, Nicole Lapin’s Becoming Super Woman, a simple 12-step plan to go from burnout to balance.

In upcoming months, Time 4 Mom will focus on stress, health, mindset, relationships, parenting, and more. Download a free Time 4 Mom Self-Care & Time Management Bundle here.
