(April 25-May 20) The Big Meal
A family tradition is traced through five generations in The Big Meal, opening tomorrow at Northwest Washington’s Studio Theatre. Nicole and Sam frequent their favorite restaurant first as a couple, then with their parents, their own kids, and eventually their kids’ kids.

(April 24-May 25) Pablo and Henri
The work of two very big deals in the art world is showcased through late May at Neptune Fine Art in Georgetown. On Paper: Picasso & Matisse features a number of prints, etchings, and drawings by the two masters. The exhibit focuses on a few of Pablo and Henri’s favorite models and muses.

(April 25-May 19) Check out the stems on this one
Studio Gallery in Northwest focuses on a few sets of stems through mid-May. Killer Legs features unapologetic charcoal and collage renditions of femininity by Washington’s own Joyce McCarten. The drawings are all accented by pointed shoes-a reminder that the legs on display draw attention, carry confidence, and hold a fair amount of allure, too.
