Caos on F is a beautiful gallery and showroom for fine art and craftsmanship nestled on the second floor of busy F Street, NW in the middle of downtown Washington. The first Friday of every month brings the opportunity for District urbanites to escape our normal chaos and slip into the monthly Caos reception and open house from 6:00pm – 8:30pm at 923 F Street.  Enjoy it this Friday, December 4. The monthly event highlights resident furniture maker Matthew Falls, pieces by Michael Berman, hand painted silk and linen artists and a special exhibitor, currently the most talented Tsolmon Damba.
