(Jan. 25-March 13) FAIRER SEXTET Six women sharing little more than gender carve out space for their artwork at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center Tuesday. The Winter 2011 exhibition runs until mid-March in Northwest Washington and includes politically charged paintings from the San Francisco Bay Area, installations that explore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and hypnotizing geometric wallpaper.

(Jan. 25-March 5) BOXY WINDOWS There's more geometry at play in "Windowboxing" at Conner Contemporary Art in Northeast through early March. Artist Cordy Ryman casts angular shadows, distorts light and stacks empty frames against an immense wall to question the viewer's perception.

(Jan. 25-Feb. 12) BEYOND THE HORIZON The only geometry in "Beyond the Horizon" is the love triangle at the center of the romantic tragedy that won playwright Eugene O'Neill his first Pulitzer Prize. Two brothers vie for one woman's love at Arlington's American Century Theater through mid-February.
