Jul. 17-Aug. 24: Nostalgia Structures
Artists from Iran, South Korea and the United States reference the concept of memory in Nostalgia Structures, an exhibit of sculptures, installations, and 2-dimensional works at Brentwood Arts Exchange through August 24. Si Jae Byun, Hedieh Ilchi, Megan Mueller and Rachel Schmidt use a diverse range of methodology and materials in their work, which carries autobiographical undertones. There will be an opening reception this Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Jul. 18-21: The Comedy of Errors
You can enjoy Shakespeare Under the Stars tomorrow night through Sunday at Olney Theatre Center, where the National Players will present free, nightly performances of The Comedy of Errors at 8 on The Root Family Stage. The farcical play follows 2 sets of identical twins that were separated at birth, but wind up in the same town on the same day. Hilarity ensues as the men are mistaken for one another, leading to a series of confusing situations.
