Two events vie for your attention tonight: First, out at McLean Project for the Arts, from 7:00 to 9:00, you can see G Fine Art gallerist Annie Gawlak's picks for the juried show, Once Again, Again, featuring folks like sculptor Mary Early, PC merchandiser Linda Hesh, and Thinking About Art blogger J.T. Kirkland.

Once you've surveyed that show, it's time to make your way to Silver Spring--to the backroom gallery of Jackie's. Because I prefer to understand the world through superficial impressions and stereotypes, I've always assumed that Jackie's is a hangout for 40-somethings and divorcees--how else to explain that heart-shaped sign on Georgia Ave? Or what little I can glean about the decor as I casually peer in the window?

Anyway, Jackie's is apparently also an art venue (for divorcees?), and they'll be featuring a show organized by Annie Adjanavich (remember her?)--of photographs by Richard Edson, the actor who played a valet in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. True, his resume lists a bunch of other important film roles...but if I see him, I plan to ask nothing but questions about Matthew Broderick.

Oh, and he was also the original drummer for Sonic Youth. Not to be confused with Bob Bert. So maybe some annoying questions about Kim Gordon are in order, too.
Edson takes macro color photographs of small plastic toys. The reception for his show, Beyond the Valley of the Micro-Bops, runs from 8:00 to 11:00.
