(July 17-21) Against the Grain
Folks have been manipulating wood to make art for a while now, so you know you’ll see some artists trying to take the form to new places if you go to an all-wood show. Such is the case in Against the Grain, showing at the artdc Gallery in Hyattsville through Saturday. The collection of contemporary wood sculptures features multidimensional and kinetic works made by local artists.

(July 17-Aug. 5) Big Love
A local theater company is putting a fresh spin on a story that’s been around for a few millennia at the John Swayze Theatre in Fairfax. Big Love updates The Danaides of Greek mythology with fifty frightened brides fleeing their grooms. Mayhem ensues when the grooms find them and force a few confrontations about gender roles and domesticity.

(July 19) Follow That Fiddle!
Glenn Donnellan became something of a YouTube sensation after he converted a baseball bat into an electric violin to play the Star-Spangled Banner. The National Symphony Orchestra violinist takes audiences on a journey through the history of the world’s violins in Follow That Fiddle Thursday at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas. Yes, the baseball bat violin will be in the house.

Music: “Attaboy” by The Goat Rodeo Sessions
