The prolific and uniquely gifted Brooks -- responsible for the occasional Metro Weekly cover illustration -- unveils an exhibit of all-new paintings. We the People is more blatantly political than typical Brooks, reflecting the political and economic turmoil that takes up the head space of those who are paying attention in today's troubled times. Opening reception is tonight, Friday, Oct. 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. On display through Nov. 28. Long View Gallery, 1234 9th St. NW. Call 202-232-4788 or visit longviewgallery.com.
