Artists fittingly reflect on winter in The Winter at Studio Gallery.

(Nov. 23-Dec. 17) The Winter
Thanksgiving’s a day away and that means winter isn’t too far off. Northwest Washington’s Studio Gallery toasts the proximate season with The Winter, opening today. Several of the gallery’s resident artists reflect on colder months spent inside studios. Some of the works are pretty direct – depicting snowy landscapes and the like; others reflect on the cycle of seasons and themes of rebirth.

(Nov. 23-March) Zambonis return to the National Mall
If you’ve already pulled out your scarves and gloves you may as well go for the skates, too! The ice stays fresh at the National Mall’s Sculpture Garden through mid-March.

(Nov. 23-Dec. 1) The Swell Season
You may not be familiar with The Swell Season. The documentary revisits the couple from the movie Once who collaborate on songs and love in real life, too. Musicians Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova attempt to sustain their relationship while coping with fame on a grueling two-year world tour. The music-filled feature opens today at Washington’s West End Cinema.
