(July 31-Oct. 28) Anima
Dutch artist Charlotte Dumas has made a name for herself traveling the world taking exceptionally captivating photos of animals-horses, tigers, 9/11 rescue dogs-whatever strikes inspiration. Her intimate portraits never feature humans, but always explore our relationships with our furry friends. Her first solo exhibition in these United States is showing now through late October at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Northwest Washington. Anima features a newly commissioned series of portraits centered on the majestic burial horses of Arlington National Cemetery.

(Aug. 1) Bachata Legends
If you don’t know much about the Dominican Republic’s homegrown bachata music but like the idea of romantic Latin rhythms played on steel string guitars, there’s a great primer tomorrow night at Strathmore. The Dominican Republic’s own bachata master Joan Soriano brings the sounds of his native land’s countryside to North Bethesda with the help of his six-member band.

Music: “Lima” by Gustavo Santaolalla
