With wall space at a premium in D.C. these days, you’re not going to see the entirety of a gallery’s holdings if you just walk through its storefront. The creative minds at Addison/Ripley Fine Art remedied that problem by creating a new show from the stuff in their storage unit, the artistic equivalent of rediscovering an outfit buried in the back of your closet. For this exhibition, the gallery has uncovered a colorful and sculptural piece by local treasure Sam Gilliam (pictured), a bold 1960s floral print by Alex Katz, and some recent images by D.C.-based photographer E. Brady Robinson. Read more >>> The exhibition is on view Tuesdays through Fridays 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., to Aug. 21, at Addison/Ripley Fine Art, 1670 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Free. (202) 338-5180. addisonripleyfineart.com. (Caroline Jones)
