Dupont Circle art galleries have been hosting First Fridays for decades, staying open late the first Friday of each month, boasting their latest talent or collection and sometimes offering refreshments. It's a great time for infrequent gallery-goers and regular visitors to mingle. The warmer weather -- and let's hope we have some -- encourages gallery hopping, with a nice stroll down R Street or Connecticut Avenue.
What's worth catching this Friday? Swedish artist Maria Friberg returns to Conner Contemporary with a new photography show that subverts traditional interpretations of masculinity and feminity. At Marsha Mateyka, painter William T. Wiley returns for his ninth solo showcase at the gallery. Down R Street at Robert Brown, find masters of modern American art on view -- albeit on a smaller scale. Look for works by Chuck Close, Andy Warhol and Alex Katz, among others.
