Timothy Makepeace has long been interested in the beauty of hidden structure, the forms of the built environment ---- water tanks, power lines ---- that are so ubiquitous that we don’t see them anymore. A mix of photography and photo--based drawings, the Washington artist’s solo exhibition, “Hubs and Feeders,” opens Friday at the D.C. Arts Center with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m.

Makepeace isn’t just fascinated by underlying form, however. Some of his works are chemically patinated with iron oxide (rust), reveling in the surface of the material world as much as in its substructure.
