June 16-July 3: PIPE DREAMS IN BLACK AND WHITE

Bobbi Shulman has always been fascinated by color and light, but in her current solo exhibit Pipe Dreams in Black and White, the artist pares down her palette to a monochromatic scale, adding in just a few hints of red and gold. You can see the collection of mixed media, abstract paintings at VisArts at Rockville through July 3. There will be an opening reception and artist talk Friday night from 7 to 9.

June 16-21: SOFTER, SOFTEST

It’s not too late to see SOFTER, SOFTEST, an exhibit at Delicious Spectacle, an artist-run space in Columbia Heights. With one exception, the featured artists are all based in D.C. The combination of sculpture, installation and 2-dimensional art deals with the condition of softness, as defined by both tactile and emotional experiences. There will be a closing reception this Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., but you can see the work through Saturday.
