Apr. 22-Jun. 21: Point of View -- Afghanistan
When Shaun Gladwell was commissioned by the Australian War Memorial to work as an official war artist, he wasn't sure what he was getting himself into, or what he would see. "It's kind of a paradox," Gladwell says. "It's like the most insane environment in terms of the war and the stress and the trauma, but then it's all taking place in like this incredibly ancient, beautiful landscape." An exhibit featuring photographs and video from that trip is on view at The Embassy of Australia through June 21. Gladwell says the work featured in Point of View - Afghanistan boils down to portraits of the people he met and the places he went to.

Apr. 22-Jul. 13: Ross/Romano
You can visit The Old Print Gallery in Georgetown through July 13 to see Ross/Romano, a series of collagraphs by husband and wife team John Ross and Clare Romano. In the exhibit, the two expert printmakers focus on architecture, waterways and canyons from their travels to Italy and the Southwest.
