(July 2-29) Flavors to savor (in clay)

There's a gang of artists in Alexandria who think you can't live without all things saucy and spicy. It's mostly because they make ceramic art to hold your seasonings, syrups, salsas, and chutneys. Spice it Up! features vibrant glazes and whimsical forms that have the potential to make your dining room table the talk of the town through the end of the month.

(July 2-19) The Art of the Catch

The Art of the Catch features art exploring a much different sphere of our food consumption. The collection of photography documents the lives of Chesapeake Bay watermen at the Center for Green Urbanism in Northeast through mid-July. Images captured over a two-year period suggest the amount of skill needed to catch fish, clams and oysters in a highly regulated environment.

Twenty-eight pianists from around the world tickle the ivories until a winner is declared on the 21st of July.
