"The Privileged Series" features Anthony Dortch's mixed media images in which he paints directly on top of photos to change the skin tones of people portrayed depending on if they're upper class (yellow) or lower (blue), which he tells Metro Weekly "gives this comic book kind of surreal look to it, or graphic novel feel." Dortch drew inspiration from other artists to create his images, including short-story writer Jackson Lassiter, photographers Stephanie Porter and Julie Sinser, fashion designer Anthony Canney and hair stylist Tim Cabell. On display through Nov. 27. Touchstone Gallery, 901 New York Ave. NW. Call 202-347-2787 or visit touchstonegallery.com.
