The American University Museum is building a reputation as a champion of the Washington art scene. On Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m., the evidence of that will be on display as the museum hosts an opening reception for six new summer exhibitions, five of which focus on local artists.

Bay Area painter Chester Arnold is the odd man out. Other shows spotlight the work of Washington artist Tim Tate, who works in glass and video, as well as Washington painters Raya Bodnarchuk, Nan Montgomery and Kitty Klaidman. The last show, “Washington Art Matters: 1940s--1980s,” features work by 80 local artists throughout those five decades.
