Looking In, Looking Through
Photography Exhibit Opening Premieres New Show, New Gallery
Kensington, MD – Saturday, April 2nd marks the opening of the photography exhibition “Looking In, Looking Through” at the new Howard Avenue Arts Incubator gallery. A reception to celebrate the inaugural show, open to the public, will be held from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm on that date. The reception and exhibition will take place on the top floor of the Gary Rosenthal Collection studio building, in Kensington's West Howard Avenue warehouse and antique district.
Curated by noted photographer Jim Auerbach, the exhibition features 10 local photographers, each showing 10 images, from landscapes and portraits to architecture and abstracts. Unifying the show is the theme “Looking In, Looking Through”: capturing the essence of a subject by looking deeply into it and communicating the context of a subject by looking through it to the wider world. The featured photographers include George DeBuchananne, Beth Koller, Peter Manzelli, Dave Mullen, Mario Ramos, Judy Saunders, Coriolana Simon, Jerry Weinstein, and Doug Wolters, as well as curator Jim Auerbach.
The works will be on display from April 2 through April 16. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
The Howard Ave Arts Incubator, a community service project of the Gary Rosenthal Collection, began operating in December 2010 with the mission of creating a collaborative arts community dedicated to promoting socially responsible action while nurturing the creative and professional growth of local artists. “The Washington, DC area has been home to my glass and metal sculpture studio for close to 40 years. By creating the Incubator, I am helping to encourage other local artists, as well as giving back to the community through social ventures that use art to make the world a better place,” states Rosenthal."
