July. 30-Sept. 13: Seven Points (part two)
The Embassy of Australia presents Seven Points (part two) through September 13. The exhibit showcases a diversity of ideas by four artists, including Tim Silver, who has two works in the exhibit: a photographic series documenting the disintegration of a full-body sculpture, and an installation of four burls, bulbous growths that grow on trees, cast out of black-pigmented polyurethane. “To me, I kind of see them as sites of trauma.” He says he’s interested in the idea of transformation. “The way things progress over time, and the sites that exemplify those things.”

Jul. 30-Aug. 25: Art In Action
You can see “Art In Action,” at The artdc Gallery in Hyattsville through August 25. There will be a reception this Saturday, from 7 to 10 p.m., during which artists will create art and present performance-based works on site.
