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.

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.
