Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present Doors of Deer, new work by member Clifford Wheeler. The exhibit takes a look at Deer Isle, a tiny island at the southern tip of the eastern-most rim of Penobscot Bay, where Clifford goes to escape the confines of living in the Washington, DC suburbs and ”recharge his batteries” as he puts it. The exhibit runs from September 4th, through October 15th. Clifford will be receiving guests on Sunday, Sept. 24, at the gallery, 11am - 6pm. Refreshments will be served.
Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present Shorelines, new work by member Sarah Hood Salomon. The work will be on display July 31st until September 4th, and an opening reception will be held Saturday, August 5th, from 3pm–5 pm.
The alluring qualities of the water’s edge have long been a source of inspiration for the human soul. Where the water meets the land is an area of higher energy. The sound of the waves encourage you to pause and reflect. Tranquil and capricious shorelines invite introspection. People tend to separate themselves to rejuvenate and relax.
Shorelines is an intimate group of photographs by Sarah Hood Salomon. She explores many types of waterfronts and the pacific effects they have on humans. Salomon employs camera movement and a desaturated color palette to emphasize the self-imposed solitudes of people alone with their thoughts.

Multiple Exposures Gallery presents a new exhibit of work by Karen Keating: A Visual Journey This exhibit will be on view from June 20 through July 30, 2017, with a reception/artist talk to be held on Sunday, July 10, 2017, 2-4pm.
Karen describes the exhibit:
My images in this exhibit are primarily from the last 18-24 months. The visual journey has not been another trip to Cuba, a visit to Key West or any other interesting country. The camera tags along with my daily life mirroring the moods, activities and momentary instances. These are not my old or new neighborhoods but rather reflections of me.
In March I visited my roots in small town Ohio photographing the small town of 12.000 people, Coshocton, and the even smaller town of Walhonding where I spent summers with my grandparents. My documentary interest is ever present, but a distinction is pushing its way into my imagery. The sense of place and the record is less important.
John Szarkowski made a distinction between photographers looking at the world through a mirror or a window. His discussion and application to photographers' styles is interesting and has always been important to me. In short, the window approach shows the world a new place as seen by a photographer; whereas the mirror is the artist's self-expression. His famous exhibit "Mirrors and Windows" has always been a part of my teaching approach.
This exhibit is a combination in my mind. The "Ohio Elegy" set is where I want to continue my look at current life in middle America. The other images have a more personal expression and portray the emotions, inspiration and beauty surrounding my past couple of years.
As an artist I am interested in makingt he distinction that Szarkowski presents - the concepts of what a photograph is.
"Is it a mirror, reflecting a portrait of the artist who made it, or a window through which one might better know the world?" - John Szarkowski
"As the country grapples with a political climate marked by recurring controversy, an Alexandria gallery is emphasizing one of our basic rights: protest."
HEAR OUR VOICES, the current exhibit at Multiple Exposures Gallery, is reviewed by Eliza Berkon in Northern Virginia Magazine. You can read the rest of the article here:
This has been a year of unprecedented civic action in response to the politically charged atmosphere pervading the country. In gatherings large and small, spanning the political spectrum, Americans have always exercised their rights to free speech and assembly to influence those in power.
In Hear Our Voices!, the photographers of Multiple Exposures Gallery have focused their vision on the theme of protest, past and present. The exhibition presents photographs that celebrate those who have taken to the streets to make their voices heard.
