David Hicks' "Cascade" is just one of the ceramic wall installations you can expect to see in Nucleus.

Jan. 29-Feb. 28: Nucleus
You can visit the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Northwest through February 28 to see Nucleus, an exhibit featuring new ceramic sculpture by David Hicks. The California-based artist draws inspiration from agricultural elements in his organic wall installations, which include colorful yet muted gourd-like objects that protrude or hang from metal fixtures.

Faye Butler and the Howard University Jazz Ensemble.
