Sit in traffic on the bay bridge… or take in an exhibit close to home? (Luis Gomez Photos)

Staying in town this 4th of July weekend? Don’t feel like sitting on I-95 or going bumper-to-bumper on the approach to the Bay Bridge? Perhaps walking from home to an art gallery is a better option. Three new exhibits opened last week at Borderstan-area galleries:

  • At gallery plan b on 14th Street, see Steed Taylor’s “Portrait of a Road Tattoo.”
  • At the Joan Hisaoka Gallery on U Street, take in “Through Their Eyes: Haitian Artists’ Visions of Home” plus photos from National Geographic’s Maggie Steberith.
  • At Transformer Gallery on P Street, go see “E7: Tetrad.” 

Thursday is the last day to see Anna U. Davis: “The Dance before the Kill” at the Long View Gallery on 9th Street NW.

See what else is on exhibit at Dupont-Logan-U Street galleries–below the fold.
