Event: Grand Opening Reception at Modernicus’ Expanded Gallery

Modern Capital’s first sponsor, Modernicus, is hosting a reception this Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. to mark the grand opening of its expanded gallery at the Mt. Vernon Antique Center here in Alexandria. Enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres and conversation with other modernists in the new 2,000 square-foot space filled with the best of American and Scandinavian furnishings and designs from the 1950s to today. If you can’t make it to the shindig Friday, check out the new space and the goods on Saturday and Sunday to benefit from proprietor Robert Chapman’s Modernicus Economic Stimulus Act granting 10 percent off items in the store.
