(Jan. 24-Feb. 13) SNOTORIOUS B.I.G. If you've been feeling some nostalgia for the snowscapes of yesteryear, you can reminisce with photographer Ernesto Santalla at Northwest Washington's Long View Gallery through mid-February. Santalla depicts last winter's record-breaking snowfall a little differently: "Symmetries" presents snippets of his photos that have been manipulated into kaleidoscopic portraits.
(Jan. 24-Feb. 12) WINTER'S TENOR There's more seasonal fare at The Old Print Gallery in Northwest. "Winter's Tenor" showcases prints that explore the quiet, moody moments of the darkest time of the year. The Gallery's winter ends early on Feb. 12.
(Jan. 24-July 17) SACKLER SPRINGS And spring has already begun at the Sackler Gallery on the National Mall. Flowers are in full bloom through mid-July with "The Orchid in Chinese Painting". Coinciding with the Museum of Natural History's annual orchid show, the exhibit features 20 works spanning five centuries that feature the flower, which in Chinese culture is associated with men of moral character.
