(Oct. 1-6) Mobiles for the Mature

If you didn't get as much R&R as you would have liked this weekend, there are a few exhibits and events to help put your mind at ease. Bethesda's David Yano has been making mobiles for thirty years to combat his posttraumatic stress disorder, and more recently to help him recover from a stroke. Stroke of Genius is a collection of his complex structures showing at Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda through Saturday.

(Oct. 3-27) The Art of Meditation

D.C. artist Eleanor Wang creates visual responses to the act of meditating. Usually they are acrylic paintings and collages depicting serene scenes and blue skies. Sky Mind features her latest work at Northwest Washington's Studio Gallery beginning Wednesday.

(Oct. 4-6) The Power of Love sans Celine

The Kennedy Center has a whole lot of love to give away this weekend. It's doing so with the help of Christoph Eschenbach and the National Symphony Orchestra. The power of love is celebrated with Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, Pablo Neruda's poems, and Wagner's Tristan and Isolde.
