Two new exhibitions open this Saturday in the neighborhood:

“Heirlooms” opens at Transformer, 1404 P Street NW, with an open house from 1 to 7 pm (artist talk at 2 pm): “Transformer is proud to present the installation work of Detroit-based artist Lauren Rice in her first DC solo exhibition. Similar to set designs for theatrical events, the landscapes Rice creates in her sculptural work are fantastical — elements appear to collapse, levitate, burst and grow within the gallery space. With Heirlooms, Rice references gardens and flowers, while simultaneously vulgarizing their traditional preconceptions as feminine and romantic.”

“drive by” opens with a 6:30 pm reception at Project 4 Gallery, 1353 U Street NW: “The show Drive By at Project 4 Gallery features six artists, whose drawings, paintings, collages and video art offer unexpected insight into the common scenes we observe while moving through the structures of an urban and suburban landscape.  People play a periphery role in the artwork and are frequently absent altogether.”
