(January 22-February 19) STORIES & MIGRATIONS ARCH Development in Anacostia hopes to lure audiences across the river with two exhibits called Stories and Migrations, opening Friday with a reception at 7 p.m. to benefit relief efforts in Africa. Stories is at Honfleur Gallery. It includes pictures from Congo, Sudan and Uganda, captured during the travels of NBC news anchor Ann Curry and producer Antoine Sanfuentes. Meanwhile, just up the street and around the corner, Honfleur's sister gallery Vivid Solutions shows Migrations, pictures of life on the ground in Darfur from two vantage points: nomadic warriors and the refugees they have displaced.

(January 23-February 13) SWEET SIXTEEN It's a sweet 16 party at Hamiltonian Gallery on U Street in D.C., as 16 writers team up with 16 visual artists for an exhibition titled Call + Response, opening Saturday night and running through February 13th. The writers provided the words on which the artists based their works. At the gallery, the art and the writing will be displayed together.
