Nov. 18-Dec. 11: Beach China
Did you grow up with your mother’s fine china perched in a glass cabinet? Well, imagine carrying that collection down to the shoreline and letting the rising tide claim those treasured items. You can check out a solo show of paintings by Leslie Parke at Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Northwest through December 11. Beach China focuses on the ceramic arts, but in a two-dimensional format. The artist paints delicate china cups, saucers and teapots floating in water, an exercise carried out by her and her brother following a devastating storm that destroyed their grandparents’ house, but spared the family’s porcelain tableware.

Nov. 18-Dec. 21: Fake Empire
You can see a visual art exhibit at CulturalDC’s Flashpoint Gallery through December 21 that analyzes how images and information can be lost or altered over time. In Fake Empire, Detroit-based artists Lauren Rice and Brian Barr use collage, animation, painting and sculpture to examine the shifting cultural significance of ideas, objects and images. The pair works through the lens of living and working in Detroit’s struggling economy.
