(Sept. 11-Nov. 2) Water Stories
It looks like ‘water’ is the common theme streaming through a number of galleries in the Washington area this month. STAGES in Northwest houses ‘Water Stories’ through early November. Frederick’s Lisa Sheirer presents large-scale abstract collages that began as extreme close-up photos of water, and were then manipulated and printed onto coated aluminum sheets.

(Sept. 11-Nov. 17) Creatures of The Sea
Washington artist Karyne Messina had some pretty profound coastal encounters with water when she was a child. Since then, she’s been blowing glass and crafting metal sculptures depicting whimsical sea creatures, ships at sea, and dancing figures. Messina’s playful works are showing through mid-November at the Brentwood Arts Exchange.

(Sept. 11-30) AIR/WATER
If you could go for some apocalyptic visions of nature there’s AIR/WATER at The Fridge in Southeast Washington through the end of the month. Inspired by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, San Francisco painter David Molesky uses turbulent water, fire, and explosions to portray modern man at conflict with nature.
