It’s that time of year again, photography lovers. The third annual DCist Exposed Photography Show opens this Friday at the Gallery at Flashpoint. The juried show “showcases new talent as the artists reveal the city through the eyes of the people who live and work in the DC area.” If you haven’t been to it in past years, it’s a great chance to view some amazing photographs taken by our superb group of local photographers, many of whom submit their incredible work to our very own WLDC pool.
I’ve been lucky to have been a part of the show for three years now and found that it’s really fueled my own interest in photography. Having your work shown in a real live gallery never gets old and is particularly exciting when it’s your first show. The openings for Exposed are always a lot of fun, full of art lovers and photographers alike (and by full, I mean over 500 people full). It’s also a great opportunity to start (or add to) your art collection as most of the photos are priced between $100-200.
If you’re interested in learning more about collecting art, be sure to attend Emerge Exposed, March 3, 7 – 9pm featuring a panel of experts sharing tips and ideas on how to begin collecting art. Co-hosted by DCist, Cultural Development Corporation and the Pink Line Project.
The opening reception runs from 5 – 9pm on Friday, but if you can’t make it for some reason, the exhibit will be on display until March 7th. I recommend you stop by early if you can before the gallery really gets packed. Here are the details:
