Alexandria, VA – Love looking at photos? Do you think they are art? If so, The Art League is hosting two photography exhibitions this month that might be just what you’re looking for.
Kathryn Mohrman, a photographer who has documented her travels around the world, presents her exhibition Women From Around the World. She is fascinated by women who honor their traditions while embracing modernity. This exhibition focuses on this fascinating duality.
Mohrman wants viewers to realize that despite differences between their cultures and those of the subjects, there are also similarities.
“I hope that they see something in my pictures and think that I can relate to that,” she said.
The other exhibit, “The Photographic Process”, consists of 18 individual pieces. Em White, a fine art photographer and documentary filmmaker, acted as a member of the jury.
A press release describes it as one that “highlights the wide range of photographic techniques and the unique approaches photographers use to create their work, from hand-developed negatives to digital photography, tintypes, cyanotypes and more. ”
Coming in April
Next month, the Art League will present Screen Dream, an exhibition of art inspired by film, television and related subjects. Judged is multifaceted character actor Xander Berkeley, whose credits include “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” (as John Connor’s foster father, Todd, who was killed by the T-1000) and “24” (as CTU Director George Mason, who killed Jack Bauer with a tranquilizer dart incapacitated).
When not on set, Berkeley is a prolific visual artist, working in oil and sculpture.
