After being an artistic nomad for thirty-plus years, I finally found a permanent studio home in 2016, in the Book Hill neighborhood of Georgetown.
At 1662 33rd Street NW, our working studios are open by appointment and for neighborhood events, salons and workshops.
We are thrilled to celebrate February 2024 by hosting a new exhibition
HOMAGE TO GUILLEN and HUGHES
February 17th – March 3rd, 2024
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 17th , 2024 from 1 – 4 PM.
This juried student photography exhibition is a visual exploration inspired by the work of poets Langston Hughes and Nicolas Guillen. Both authors were born in 1902 and their writings express the racial, class, and social injustice of the 1930s and 40s in the US and Cuba.
The haunting, mysterious, stark, yet melodious photographs resonate with the juxtaposition of the Blues and Son Cubano rhythm. All images in this exhibition were produced by the intermediate & advanced photography students from the University of the District of Columbia and the American University studying under Prof. Iwan Bagus.
Special thanks to David Ramirez Alvarez, Director of cultural Affairs to the Embassy of Cuba.
