Aug. 1-18: Following the Thin Woman
Ariel J. Klein says he leans on his imagination when painting narratives on canvas. His latest exhibit, Following the Thin Woman features 21 colorful paintings; most were made while the abstract artist was living abroad in Spain. Klein says that he gets joy out of color. “I think in a painting like this one in front of us, which is extremely saturated, it just gives it a dance-like happiness.” You can see the work through August 18 at The Purple Coconut Gallery in Silver Spring.

Aug. 3-27: A Journey from Argentina
A Journey from Argentina opens tomorrow at The Watergate Gallery in Northwest, where it will be on view through August 27. Eliana Macri presents bold, colorful paintings that mirror the artist’s own journey in life, while abstract painter Franco Lippi contributes work exploring “the journey that occurs when science and magic collide.”

Aug. 4: Rodrigo y Gabriela
You can end your weekend on a high note this Sunday at the Music Center at Strathmore, where Mexican guitarristas Rodrigo y Gabriela perform at 7 p.m.

Music: “Tamacun” by Rodrigo y Gabriela
