(Sept. 20-Oct. 2) The seasonal stuff
For better or worse, autumn is just around the corner. Alexandria’s Scope Gallery is gearing up for the change with Shades of Fall. Potters play with contrasts and textures in celebration of the season through early October. Leaves are pressed into vases and dishes, seasonal fruit is sculpted and woodfire pieces feature the rich pallet of fall foliage.

(Sept. 20-Oct. 15) In Quest of The Sun
D.C. painter Ellington Robinson has In Quest of The Sun at Northwest Washington’s Project 4 Gallery until October 15th. Robinson looks at location -- both geographic and socioeconomic -- with works that incorporate collected materials including travel documents, interoffice mail and cassette tapes.

(Sept. 22-Oct. 8) The Mandrake 
Washington’s Faction of Fools Theatre Company has The Mandrake at Gallaudet University for the next few weeks. Love seems impossible until a gang of immoral misfits deceives its way to a happy ending. The ends justify the means in Machiavelli’s satirical play.
