(Through March 6) THEREABOUTS

The paintings of D.C. native Rodgers Naylor run the gamut, from the streets of Chicago to the light in canyons. His work is on display in the exhibit Here and There at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Georgetown through March 6th. Naylor's art is warm and alive, using an alla prima technique that's as fresh as it sounds.

(Through August 15) LEAN ON ME Even presidents need someone to lean on. In Woodrow Wilson's case, make that some THING. The Woodrow Wilson House on DC's Embassy Row is dedicated to all things Wilsonian. Its newest exhibit, My Third Leg showcases a selection of the President's own walking sticks, props that provide a glance at an American folk tradition tinged with history.

(February 20) FABRIC OF OUR LIVES Inspired by her ancestors, Alfreda Gourdine-Southerland presents an array of textile sculptures in the African tradition, on display at ArtSpring Gallery in Maryland's Silver Spring. Sewing together silk and cotton, kente cloth and semi-precious stones, her work celebrates heritage and love of family.
