July 2-27: Fireworks

This month you can see Fireworks at Foundry Gallery in D.C. For the exhibition, member artists interpreted the explosive theme in literal, mystical, emotional and abstract terms. You can see colorful paintings, mixed media and digital work ranging from the patriotic to the naturalistic through July 27. There will be an opening reception next Friday, July 11, from 6 to 8 p.m.

July 3: Bluegrass and Fireworks

Why wait until Independence Day to enjoy sparkly explosives? Tomorrow night you can head to Rappahannock County, Virginia for an indoor, family-friendly bluegrass concert featuring The Seldom Scene. The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is part of The Castleton Festival, which will include opera and more musical performances through July 20. After the show, you can watch a full fireworks display in the meadow next to the Festival Theatre.
