Photography exhibitions

A Room of Our Own
f11, A Women’s Photography Collective

March 1 – April 1, 2011
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 10, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Does gender define art? Traditionally, recognition and gallery space have been harder to come by for women compared to their male counterparts. “A Room Of Our Own,” a photography exhibit opening March 1, 2011 at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery in Washington, DC, proves talent is not the root of the discrepancy.

Sponsored by The Art League in Alexandria, VA in honor of Women’s History Month, “A Room Of Our Own” features more than 50 outstanding images created by the 18 members of f11, A Women’s Photography Collective. “The images are as rich and varied as the methods used to make them, reflecting the different perceptions, styles and processes of f11’s members,” stated Rose O’Donnell, Gallery Director for The Art League.

From Sandy LeBrun-Evans’ images of the historic Eastern State Penitentiary in Pennsylvania, to Sheila Galagan's series from Rock Creek Cemetery in the Petworth section of Washington, DC, and Pamela Viola’s “interpretive” Egyptian landscapes, the work contained in “A Room Of Our Own” incorporates photographic processes both centuries old and recently discovered. Whether it’s film or digital, cyanotype or HDR, silver gelatin or scanned, f11 members combine compelling compositions with technological savvy to create unique, artful images.

At the Jerusalem  Fund Gallery
500 children, 500 cameras, 500 moments
 March 11– April 8, 2011
Opening reception Friday March 11,  6-8 PM.

Photojournalist Ramzi Haidar launched the project Glimpse to bring together photographers, journalists and artists with children ages 5-12 in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. The children worked with these volunteers for one year to learn the basics of photography. The images they produced with their camera are entirely their own, giving them a power to reveal a reality rarely seen.  Large scale photos and books about the project are on display at the Jerusalem Fund Gallery.
