Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to announce our current exhibit. Janet Matthews presents an exhibition of new photography: Small Anxieties. Matthew's images are compelling small tableaux in which the artist confronts fear and fantasy by placing miniature dolls into imagined moments. The exhibition opens February 14th and runs through March 26, 2017.
Multiple Exposures greets 2017 with two exciting new exhibits: IRISH LANDSCAPES: A Study in Contrasts - photographs by Colleen Henderson and HARD TRUTHS: McDowell County, WV - photographs by Sandy LeBrun-Evans. These exhibits will run from January 3 through February 12, 2017.
IRISH LANDSCAPES A Study in Contrasts - Photographs by Colleen Spencer Henderson
Colleen presents photographs made during a 6 week journey visiting several counties in western Ireland including: County Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Roscommon, Clare, Limerick, Kerry and Cork.
What Colleen found most striking about the Irish Landscape was its breadth and diversity. In any given moment a scene might unfold as both grand and intimate; tenacious and gentle; or humble and proud.

HARD TRUTHS: McDowell County, WV - Photographs by Sandy LeBrun-Evans
Sandy’s photographs represent her 2016 trips through the county of McDowell in West Virginia capturing the remains of the demise of the coal industry and the empty promises of “jobs, jobs, jobs” by politicians.
West Virginians are proud, hard working people who are extremely loyal and have deep love for their state. They have watched the mines close, the mountaintops cut off and the land timbered, yet when they see a coal truck on the highway, they cheer because there is work.

Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present “Never Forget,” an exhibit by Alan Sislen commemorating the 15th anniversary of 9/11. The exhibit will run from September 6th – October 16th, 2016. The opening reception will be held on Sunday, September 11th from 2-4pm.
The photographs in this exhibit chronicle Sislen’s 15-year journey beginning before 9/11, and continuing today. We see photographs of devastation, mourning and remembrance, primarily at and near the site of the World Trade Center in New York City. The exhibit explores an area destroyed and then transformed into new structures and memorials, and reflects a resilience and new vibrancy and hope for New York City and beyond.
Sislen’s personal connection to Lower Manhattan and the neighboring financial district were the catalyst for a few casual photographs growing into a decade and a half long project. As we commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11, he hopes these photographs will help us Never Forget the morning of 9/11/01 that affected so many, and the sorrow, the hope and the transformation that followed.
Opening Reception: Sunday, September 11, 2-4pm (free and open to the public)
Exhibition Dates: September 6th – October 16th, 2016

Long before the throngs arrive
with coolers and chairs,
towels and toddlers, boogie boards
and beach bags, the water's edge
draws us in for a moment of stillness
that belies all that's to come.
Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to announce our current exhibit:
Maureen Minehan - At Water's Edge
June 21 - July 31, 2016
Closing Reception: July 31 2-4pm
Multiple Exposures Gallery presents two new exhibits: UNSEEN/EXPIRED by Soomin Ham and Cub Run Pond by Eric McCollum. These exhibits may be viewed from May 10 through June 19, 2016. A reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2016, 2-4pm.
Soomin Ham's new work, UNSEEN/EXPIRED, presents photographs as ephemera… bringing to life images of Ham’s old film slides never seen before. Ham uses an experimental process in a traditional darkroom with expired photographic paper, outdated developer, and no fixer to create photographs with a short life – images offering only a fleeting a glimpse of places and time long forgotten.
Eric McCollum's show explores familiarity, simplicity, and the commitment to place in a series of photographs made over the course of a year at a small, suburban pond. Working in black and white, McCollum brings a sense of intimacy to a small, and easily dismissed, landscape.
Soomin Ham's solo exhibition Sound of Butterfly is currently being shown at Flashpoint Gallery through April 30. A reflection on her mother's journey through life, depression, and death, this body of work presents Ham's experimental approach to understanding memories and grasping loss.
Soomin's exhibit was recently reviewed by Washington City Paper's Louis Jacobson. He says,
In her multimedia exhibit “Sound of Butterfly,” D.C.-based artist Soomin Ham ingeniously blends form with theme.

Soomin Ham - Sound of Butterfly. Through April 30 at Flashpoint Gallery, 916 G St. NW. Wed-Sat 12 p.m.-6 p.m.
