(March 18-April 17) HOLDING THE PROVERBIAL MIRROR Glen Echo Park's Photoworks Gallery showcases the work of six of the region's emerging documentary photographers in "Mirror To The World". The exhibit houses images of vacant tenements, abandoned buildings, and three distinct slices of life in the District.

(March 18-26) PHANTASMAGORIA IN PHOTOS For more powerful photography there's "Phantasmagoria" at Studio Gallery in Northwest through the end of the month. The District's Iwan Bagus captures haunting landscapes and depicts the proverbs of his native Indonesia.

(March 19) VOLGER QUARTET If you're looking for some chamber music this weekend, there's Berlin's Volger Quartet, at Georgetown's Historic Dumbarton Church Saturday night. The masters of their craft play selections from Beethoven, Dvorak and even promise to get a little jazzy.

(March 18-20) ENCORE OUT OF ORDER And for some family fun you can take in the highly out of order, but totally original production of "The Brothers Grimm" all weekend at Encore Stage & Studio's Children's Theatre in Arlington.

Music: "One Big Holiday" by My Morning Jacket
