gallery plan b at 1530 14th Street NW

- Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 7 pm; Sunday, 1 to 5 pm.
Hamiltonian Gallery at 1353 U Street NW

Although stylistically distinct, Lee and Mann both convey imaginary dimensions of space to metaphor the human condition.” (Hamiltonian Gallery)
- Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 6 pm.

- Overview: “England’s work juxtaposes classic and iconic imagery from much earlier times with figures that have, quite frankly, been disfigured. Amy Boone-McCreesh’s installation resembles a Chinese new year’s parade on its way to a second line or mardi gras, depending on your perspective.” (harmon art lab)
- Gallery Hours: Call for an appointment; gallery staff is in the building Monday through Friday during business hours.
Hillyer Art Space at 9 Hillyer Court NW
- “Lucinda Murphy: Evolution” and “Monica Stroik: Substructure” run through February 24.
- Overview: “Most recently, Murphy has focused on exploring order and chaos from both the scientific sense and in the sense of how we perceive the difference; literally and psychologically. On a broad universal level, Monica Stroik’s paintings reflect the fact that each of us makes daily choices, some conscious and others unconscious, which all have consequences.” (Hillyer Art Space)
- “Elizabeth Holtry: Toile de Jouy” runs through February 24.
- Overview: Holtry’s paintings depict animals that few people appreciate, such as hyenas, insects and rats. Her work addresses our prejudicial attitudes toward these animals.” (Hillyer Art Space)
