Please join us on November 7th from 6-8pm for the opening reception of ‘From Ode to Elegy’, a solo exhibition of photographs and a corresponding limited edition photo-book by local artist, E. Jane.
November 7 – 30, 2013 (Opening Reception: Thursday 11/7, 6-8pm)
a solo exhibition by E. Jane
In November, Pleasant Plains Workshop will present a solo exhibition by emerging DC-based photographer, E. Jane. Jane will debut an artist book and a series of photographs portraying the Georgia Avenue Corridor. The photographs mirror a feeling of disconnectedness that the artist felt upon moving to DC in 2012. And although they mainly document spots that are either abandoned or in disarray, there is an undertone of Georgia Avenue’s rich history and culture that seeps out through the cracks. There is also a nod to the future of the corridor and its impending gentrification. A sound installation, created in collaboration with local artist, chukwumaa, will accompany the exhibition.
Join us this Saturday, 9/28 from 4-7pm for the opening and issue release party of our project space exhibition, The Crier!
Half artist mag, half local rag, The Crier is a new DIY local newspaper edited by Natalie Campbell, Bryan Minnich, and Martine Workman, featuring contributions from local artists. The issues were edited and assembled via submissions, and big series of prints were produced at PPW to create an interactive istallation that will be unveiled on Saturday 9/28. You can also pick up your FREE copy of the magazine at the event. Refreshements will be served. come one, come all! (facebook invite>>)
