Art Opening Reception: Wanda's on 7th, 04/18/16, 7-9 PM!

Come to Wanda's on 7th at 1851 7th Street, NW on Monday, April 18, 2016, from 7:00-9:00 PM for an evening of great art and fine wine, featuring paintings by John Parker and wines from Grand Cata.
John Parker ( was born and raised in Washington, DC, where he began drawing as a young boy. His early works consisted of highly detailed graphite and charcoal drawings and portraits of those observed around him. In the early 1980s, he obtained his formal fine arts training from the Corcoran College of Art. Parker's paintings focus on lines that flow freely about his canvases in fluid motion. This award winning artist's unique style of painting captivates the eye, and his latest series of paintings entitled "Dances with Line" exemplifies his talent to make the mundane exciting, stimulating and full of energy. 
Grand Cata (, one of Shaw's newest retailers, focuses on wine and spirits from Latin America, Spain, Portugal and Italy.  They also offer a curated selection of food products with a latin flavor and Latin American and local beers. 
Wanda's on 7th ( has been a fixture in Shaw since 2003, offering men's and women's haircare, skincare, manicuring, and massage.
Enjoy this opportunity to meet a talented artist and see his work; meet our host, Wanda Henderson and hear about her salon and spa's services; and meet the owners of Grand Cata and learn about the wines of Latin America.
