WPA’s Options 2013 opens this Saturday, April 13

Carolyn Case

You know how some people get lucky and discover artists before they become sensations, purchasing some original artwork for a fraction of what they’re worth later? Well there’s certainly no guarantee any of the 16 emerging and currently unrepresented regional artists at the Washington Project for the Arts’ Options 2013 will eventually garner fame and fortune, much less that of their artwork. But even if not you can still walk out with some one-of-a-kind art. And hey, no doubt at least some of your houseguests might mistake you for an art trendsetter. Opening reception is Saturday, April 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. On exhibition through June 9. Arlington Arts Center, 3550 Wilson Blvd. Arlington. Call 703-248-6800 or visit or
