Dec. 12 -Jan. 12: "Heroines, Angels, Muses"
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but that concept isn't exclusive to photos. In "Heroines, Angels, Muses: Twenty Years of Stories Spoken Through Images," Argentine-born artist Alfredo Ratinoff presents works in glass, clay, and enamels that depict both real stories from history and the tales we grow up hearing. The exhibition will be up at The Watergate Gallery through January 12.
