Dec. 10-29: Land Lines: Navigating Boundaries of Geography and Memory
You can see a solo exhibit by local artist Clare Winslow at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in Silver Spring through December 29. Land Lines: Navigating Boundaries of Geography and Memory uses map-like images of the earth, sea and sky to tell a story. The artist relies on her memory and imagination to recreate views of places that she visited years before.

Dec. 10-Jan. 4, 2013: Taking Off
The Watergate Gallery & Frame Design in Northwest presents Taking Off, an exhibit featuring work by The Painters 12, a group of artists who met and continue to paint together at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. The artists employ their own methods and styles to explore topics ranging from universal themes to more personal experiences. The work will be on view through January 4, and you can attend an artist talk tonight at 6:30.
