June 27 to Aug. 2: A Peace (of the Dream)

Sonya Lawyer honors family and community in an exhibition that opens on Friday called A Peace (of the Dream). It celebrates our shared humanity through vintage photographs, music, personal stories and spoken word. Inspired by unfinished quilts, the artist “sews” photos and hand-dyed fabric together to create what she calls a “visual poem.” On select Saturdays during July, she invites visitors to bring their own vintage family photos to Flashpoint Gallery, where they will be scanned, returned and ultimately incorporated into “i.you.he.she.they.we.(us) – A Community Quilt.”

June 28 to Aug. 10: Mouse on the Move

Starting this Saturday, you can bring your little ones to Imagination Stage in Bethesda to see Mouse on the Move, a theater performance for the very young. Nellie and Amelia are two adventurous mice who want to explore the world and the moon, which they hear is made of cheese. In this interactive play, the audience helps the mice on their big journey. You can see the show on weekends through Aug. 10.
