(Jan. 3-21) Wolfish works
German-born American painter Wolf Kahn started cranking out drawings and paintings at the tender age of 4. That was about 80 years ago. Since then, he’s made a name for himself producing a distinct variety of colorful landscape portraits using oil paints and pastels. Kahn manages to faithfully depict natural scenes while infusing them with a little imagination. A collection of his work is showing until January 21st at Addison/Ripley Fine Art on Wisconsin Avenue in Northwest Washington.

(Jan. 4-Feb. 5) Their Eyes Were Watching Gleam
Charm City’s Center Stage opens Gleam tomorrow. The play based on Zora Neale Hurston’s beloved novel Their Eyes Were Watching God is centered around 16-year-old Janie, who opts out of a marriage of convenience and a life of servitude and instead sets out on a journey that brings success and failure in equal measure. You can join Janie through early February.
