(April 14-15) 52 Opening up
Every year, when the air begins to warm and the flowers start to bloom, artists tend to open up their studios to take you behind the scenes. You can expect a lot of that in the coming weeks, beginning with the 52 O Street Open Studios this weekend in Northwest Washington. This year’s edition includes the customary opportunities to check out some artists’ creative spaces, but there will also be film screenings, a bike clinic, live performances, and food.

(April 10-May 19) Bread and Butter
Food is the inspiration behind Bread and Butter, showing at Northwest’s Transformer gallery through mid-May. Four artists explore how the stuff we eat relates to class and identity with photography, sculpture, and performance.

(April 10-May 20) Vertical Views
District-based artist Lou Stovall has been exploring nature through his art for some 60 years and the man’s still up on current trends. His latest collection of 3D collages bring some of Earth’s most brilliant, naturally-occurring colors to the American University Museum at the Katzen through May 20.

Music: “Swing 42” by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli
