City Paper is not for tourists
Govinda Gallery: The folks portrayed in French photographer Claude Gassian‘s exhibition “Anonymous” are anything but unknown; they include Mick Jagger, Björk, Tom Waits, and PJ Harvey, just to name a few. Reception is tonight, Friday, 4/13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Irvine Contemporary: Although not associated with the ColorField Remix exhibits opening District-wide this weekend, “Oliver Vernon: Macro/Micro” doesn’t shy away from a variety of hues. The shapes, though, are small and all over the place, and the paintings look like they’d make great math textbook covers. Reception with the artist is Saturday, 4/14, from 6 to 8 p.m.
And if a gallery isn’t in your plans, consider Teatro de la Luna‘s 15th annual Spanish poetry marathon. “La Pluma y la Palabra” features roughly eight hours of readings, all in Spanish, by poets from across Latin America and D.C. as well as Poet Laureate of Virginia Carolyn Kreiter-Foronda. Catch the bulk of it Saturday, 4/14, at Casa de la Luna, from 2-8 p.m.
