The pieces featured in Text/Message focus on the visual aspects of writing, rather than its nature as a means of communication.
Sept. 10-Oct. 5: Text/Message
A new exhibit opens today at Bethesda’s Waverly Street Gallery, where it will be on view through October 5. In Text/Message, local ceramicist Kanika Sircar says she focuses on the aesthetics of writing, without necessarily attaching meaning to the words. Her ceramic vessels and wall pieces draw from texts, calligraphy and graffiti, and feature inscriptions, slips, marks from carving tools, and other elements that lend a weathered look to the stoneware.
Sept. 10-15: Potted Potter
Harry Potter fans and their children can attend Potted Potter at The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Sidney Harman Hall through Sunday. The two-man improv comedy show by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner races through the plot of the seven-book series as the actors take turns donning hats, accents and the farcical, reimagined personalities of characters such as Dobby the House Elf, Professor Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, Lord Voldemort, and of course, Harry Potter.
