Jan. 8-Feb. 2: Winter White
It might not look like a winter wonderland out there, but it still feels like it. Now through February 2 you can immerse yourself in Winter White, a ceramics exhibition at Alexandria’s Scope Gallery. The work featured in this Washington Ceramic Guild show isn’t exclusively white and does include accents of red, black and other pigments, but for the most part, the clay pieces focus on creamy, ivory hues and frosted, icy elements. Pieces also include nods to outdoor imagery such as river rocks, flora and polar bears.

Jan. 8-26: South African Voices
The Washington Printmakers Gallery in Silver Spring is hosting more than 250 prints by nearly 40 emerging artists from South Africa. The exhibit, South African Voices: A New Generation of Printmakers, is co-presented with Vula Amehlo Art Development of Johannesburg and features work by artists who mainly hail from urban townships and remote, rural communities. You can check it out through January 26.
