(Jan. 13-29) Getting creative with the cold
If you’re up for trying out new ways to stay warm this winter there’s a show of ceramics that were birthed in some serious heat at the Scope Gallery in Alexandria through the end of the month. Hibernation: Getting Cozy with Clay has things that will eventually hold hot things, like mugs, soup bowls, teapots and casserole dishes. There are also some sculptures and decorative pieces that have the potential to make you feel warm inside.

If Jim Morrison makes you feel warm inside you’ll want to head to Alexandria’s Church of the Resurrection Sunday night. Acoustic guitarists and veteran harmonizers James Lee Stanley and Cliff Eberhardt pay tribute to The Doors, playing cuts from their cover album All Wood and Doors, which features contributions from original band members.
