Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. gets serious Tuesday night at Iota Club & Cafe in Arlington.

(May 16-June 26) CENTENART New York's Will Barnet knew he wanted to be an artist at the age of 10. This year he's celebrating birthday 100 and he's still going strong, producing paintings that portray everyday scenes in a minimalist fashion. A collection of works that showcase the painter's deft manipulation of shapes and colors opens Monday at VisArts in Rockville.

(May 17) NOT COMPLETELY UNSERIOUS For some more minimalism there's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.. The Detroit duo may have a nonsensical band name, but it takes its music pretty seriously. Electro pop flirts with folk under sparse drum machines and guitars and lots of vocal harmony Tuesday night at the Iota Club & Cafe in Arlington.

(May 21-22) HISTORICAL HENRY Lumina Studio Theatre in Silver Spring stages Henry VI Saturday and Sunday. An embattled king rallies for control of England in the Bard's historic play while accompanied by three centuries of classical music performed by local music scholars and ensembles.

Music: "Morning Thought" by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
