(May 21-Dec. 30) One Day, After the Rain

The movements of one day are traced in Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto’s One Day, After the Rain, showing at the Phillips Collection café in Northwest Washington until the end of the year. The massive ink and acrylic drawing takes the viewer from sunrise to nightfall through dreamlike landscapes.

(May 21-June 14) A little bit of everything

Somewhere between the worlds of sculpture, opera, and marionettes is Character Studies, showing at Northwest’s Watergate Gallery through the middle of June. Visual artist and veteran wigmaker Dennis Bergevin exercises his freedom to fashion ceramic sculptures of his favorite opera characters in disguise as marionettes.

(May 23-June 24) Getting silly with Servant

The Shakespeare Theatre Company takes on its favorite Carlo Goldoni production this season. A minion faces mayhem when he bites off more than he can chew in The Servant of Two Masters. The play promises music, dance, and lots of laughter through late June.
