"Enchanted Summer" by Susan Goldman.

(April 18-29) WHO NEEDS A DAY WHEN YOU COULD HAVE A WEEK? Earth Day isn't until Friday, but that isn't stopping American University's School of International Service from getting a head start on the celebration. The environmentally themed oil paintings of local artist Kay Jackson bring scenes from the wild to the walls of the school's new environmentally friendly building in Tenleytown through the end of the month.

(April 18-June 4) ANCIENT VESSEL, TIMELESS METAPHOR Artist Susan Goldman has been creating prints and teaching about making them for decades. "Prima Materia: Vernal Matrix" is her latest collection at Northwest Washington's Old Print Gallery through early June. The works showcase the amphora - a jar used in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations to carry food, wine, and other life-sustaining substances. Goldman's prints connect the amphora to the female womb with sweeping patterns, vibrant colors, and woodcuts.

(April 20-23) THE CAR PLAYS D.C.'s Taffety Punk Theatre Company presents "The Car Plays" through Saturday. Three one-act plays examine the sometimes epic problems we make for ourselves in our little moving spaces.
