Cindy Packard Richmond's solo exhibit, "Food, Glorious Food," is open through May 2.

(April 25-May 2) FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD If you like art and you like food, you can probably appreciate "Food, Glorious Food", on display at The Art League Gallery in Alexandria through May 2. Cindy Packard Richmond started out as a food writer, but decided she would rather be a food painter later in life. Her sweeping foodscapes portray all sorts of sustenance in luscious states.

(April 25) LOVE, INTERRUPTED A daughter's search for her father drives "Snapshot: a true story of love interrupted by invasion". Actress Carmen Mitzi Sinnott uses dance, film, photos and her thespian talents to pay tribute to her father, who left for Vietnam before she was born and never returned. The one-woman show is presented at the National Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Northwest Washington Monday afternoon.

(April 25) ALL YACHT AT THIS CLUB YACHT is a type of boat, but it's also a band with connections to Oregon, California and Texas, playing Monday night at the Black Cat in Northwest Washington. YACHT's members seamlessly blend poppy harmonies with laptop-made beats for a little fun that promises to move your feet.
