Adam de Boer's exhibition at Flashpoint Gallery is something of an experiment for the Washington artist. The colors used in his newest paintings are based on an early-20th-century theory of "chords of color," where musical notes correspond to specific hues. In this case, the songs that inspired de Boer come out of Colombian vallenato music, a type of folk music he heard during a recent visit to a friend's farm, or finca, near Bogota, which also inspired the scenes depicted in his paintings.
On Friday from 6 to 8 p.m., Flashpoint will host a free opening reception for "Adam de Boer: Finca" at 916 G St. NW. A vallenato musician will also perform. The show runs through Nov. 13. 202-315-1305. www.flashpointdc.org.
