Women, Watts and Williams.
1. Philadelphia singer-songwriter Victoria Watts has a pop-rock vibe as sweet as corn syrup.
The music artist’s journey started in California, where she was born. But her gypsy intuition has led her across the country and abroad.
After a stint in Nashville, she moved to Philadelphia to play bass for Talain Rayne and guitar for Element K. Today, she writes, produces and performs music all over the country as a singer and multi-instrumentalist.
Watts and her band will hold it down at the Fire & Ice Lounge of Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, 1131 N. Dupont Highway, Dover at 9:30 p.m., Saturday. COST Free. INFO doverdowns.com or 674-4600.
2. Three-time Grammy winner Lucinda Williams will bring her talents to the First State Sunday.
Her latest album is “The Ghosts of Highway 20.” On the record, she gives listeners a vivid look at how living on the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life.
The 14-song collection is arguably the most heartfelt work of Williams’ illustrious 35-plus-year career, one that’s been established on a foundation of remarkably personal songs.
You can catch Williams (with opener Jesse Malin) at the Bottle & Cork, 1807 Coastal Highway, Dewey Beach at 7 p.m., Sunday. COST $45. INFO bottleandcorkdewey.com or 227-3888.
3. The posh exhibit "Assemblage: A Regional Collective of Women’s Art” is a reminder there’s strength in numbers, especially in art.
Assemblage is 17 women artists from the greater Philadelphia area. They work in various media and include figure, animals, architecture, nature and both realistic and abstract forms in their designs.
Painting, printmaking and drawing with bright colors and monochrome tones, three-dimensional pieces and found objects contribute to the diversity of each artist’s styles.
The “Assemblage” exhibit is on display at the Delaware Art Museum, 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The exhibit ends Sept. 3. COST $10 non-members; $12 adults; $10 seniors; $6 students and youth (ages 7 to 18); free for ages 6 or younger; free admission on Thursdays and Sundays. INFO delart.org or 571-9590
