July 8-Aug. 3: The Beach at High Tide

The long weekend is over, but it doesn’t mean you have to give up that vacation spirit. Starting tomorrow, you can transport yourself to the shore by visiting Bethesda’s Waverly Street Gallery, where The Beach at High Tide will be on view through August 3. Artist Ann Zahn created the series of woodcuts, etchings and drawings while sitting in the sand at Ocean City. Her images represent the way people establish a space or territory for themselves using blankets, chairs, umbrellas and towels.

July 7-20: The Gray Area: Living in Transition

You can see artwork by veterans and current reserve members at Gallery 31 at the Corcoran College of Art and Design through July 20. The Gray Area: Living in Transition explores the boundaries between military and civilian life through photography, film, painting and animation. Admission to the exhibit is free and open to the public.
