Dupont Circle’s Alex Gallery shows printmaker Ann Zahn’s intriguing works — ranging from her earlier linear series “Beauty and the Beast, 100 Views of Home,” to her current adventurous prints, which she integrates with paper she makes by hand. Such a work is “Garden Journal IV, A Daylily Garden,” in which she sets cut-linoleum red and white “flowers” on a white ground, then superimposes the image on dark-hued paper she crafted from rhubarb and oak. A new departure for the Bethesda artist in her exhibit, “New Garden Journals,” are her large prints, including “Garden Journal III, Homage a Bellini/Titian’s ‘Feast of the Gods’,” in which she surrounds her version of “Feast of the Gods” with 12 other iconic images. At the Alex Gallery, 2106 R St. NW; noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, by appointment. Through Sept. 7. Free. 202/667-2590.
