Calling all Gastronomes! Photoworks Gallery announces Foodies, a juried photography exhibit highlighting the good, the bad and the tasty of a culture obsessed with eating as a hobby.

Foodies opens September 15 with a gallery talk and reception from 7pm to 9pm and runs through October 22, 2017. The exhibit goes far beyond the #FoodPorn you see on your Instagram feed. It features photos of food in all stages of preparation, from harvesting, to stylized “still life” cooking portraits, to composted scraps, and photos of the “foodies” themselves.

Artists exhibiting work in the show include; William Edwards, Eileen Z. Joseph, John Pan, Vincent Ferrari, Blair Jackson, Cam Miller, Sandy Sugawara, Richard Paul Weiblinger, Ari Golub, Ron Freudenheim, Ed Palaszynski, Bob Friedman, Zhangmou Sun, Gayle Friedman, and Said Ziar.

About Photoworks
Forty 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 day-to-day collaboration, creative dialogue, and informal mentoring that led those artists to successful careers as fine art and commercial photographers established the values of experimentation and collegiality that define Photoworks today.  Offering a diverse combination of educational programs, gallery exhibitions, and community initiatives, Photoworks is a vibrant and unique resource for student and professional photographers – an arts community in the very best sense of the word.

Photoworks offers photography classes for all ages. The gallery is open to the public Sundays from 1pm to 8pm and Saturdays from 1pm to 4pm.
