On Friday, the Anacostia neighborhood plays host to two art openings you won’t want to miss. From 7 to 9 p.m., Honfleur Gallery unveils the latest solo exhibition by Michael B. Platt. Called “Steppin’ Out,” the show features digital prints of the human figure, influenced by a recent trip to Australia, that are reminiscent of the Washington artist’s life-size cutouts from the 1980s and 1990s.
Around the corner, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Gallery at Vivid Solutions -- temporarily housed in a satellite space -- will host an opening for “Divine Revelations: Passages From the Life of Our Lady.” Inspired by Roman Catholic iconography, Carolina Mayorga’s series of photographs re-imagines the artist as the Virgin Mary, in a commentary on gender and cultural identity.
The opening will include a performance by Mayorga at 6:15 p.m.
