>> Honfleur Gallery has a fortuitously timed exhibit for those of you feeling the charitable need to do more for those less fortunate. Their new exhibit, Stories, features three photographers who've traveled to various African countries to document issues like child soldiers and refugees from nations in conflict. The photographs provide a narrative context to raise awareness of the problems; proceeds from the exhibit go to the International Lifeline Fund. The Gallery at Vivid Solutions, around the corner from Honfleur, will hold an extension of the exhibit. Both open Friday, 7 p.m.

>> Hemphill shows off some of its best regulars in their new exhibit opening Saturday. See vintage Kodak Brownie images by William Christenberry, installation and collage pieces by Robin Rose, and prints by Donald Baechler in his Flower Studies. 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

>> The Hemphill-run Carroll Square Gallery will also have an opening featuring 3D: Contemporary Sculpture by Kyan Bishop, Leah Frankel and Elizabeth Kendall. Friday, 6 to 8 p.m.

>> Hamiltonian Gallery opens Call and Response, an exhibit that paired 16 writers and 16 visual artists to create work together. Each visual artist made work in response to one of the pieces of prose or poetry provided; the works will be hung together in the gallery. Try a beer from local Flying Dog Brewery during the opening reception Saturday, 7 to 9 p.m.

>> Liz Lerman Dance Exchange will have a performance at the Round House Theatre in Silver Spring next Monday, featuring their House Blend of four new works. $15, 8 p.m.
