June Art Exhibit: Beyond the Park

Thirty years ago, in a derelict building hidden among the abandoned amusement park rides of Glen Echo Park, four young photographers founded Photoworks – with little more than a shared passion for the daily work of seeing, shooting, and printing images of lasting beauty and artistic integrity. The creative day-to-day collaboration, dialogue, and informal mentoring that led those artists to successful careers as fine art and commercial photographers firmly established the values of experimentation and collegiality that define Photoworks today. Photoworks is an arts community in the very best sense of the word.  When an artist is encouraged to shoot it differently, to make it genuine, to take it to extremes, to make one more print, to share it…this is pure, vintage Photoworks. And this is what inspires the artists and teachers whose work appears here.
