Capitol Hill is a neighborhood rich in history, community, architecture, faces, dogs, and more. One exhibit can't portray it all, but a collection of images can capture some of the spirit and visual excitement of the neighborhood, just as a portrait of a person can capture a bit of the spirit and life of its subject

In this exhibit, DC photographer Sally Canzoneri uses colorful, pictorial style photographs create a portrait of Capitol Hill. Though she works with digital technology, Canzoneri’s images look more like lithographs than photos; and the pictures have an “old fashioned” quality that often contrasts with their present day content. An exhibit of M. Alexander Gray’s meticulous intaglio and relief prints hangs near Canzoneri’s work giving viewers a chance to compare ancient and modern techniques for making multiple pictures.

Sally Canzoneri’s artist’s books and photographs have been shown in numerous juried exhibitions. 

Date: Exhibition runs through January 3, 2016. 
Opening reception: November 18, 6-8 pm
Location: Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital, 921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington DC 20003
