After 10 years as artist in residence in the Chautauqua Tower at Glen Echo Park, J. Jordan Bruns has the possibility of taking a 3-year sabbatical to explore the world and live in Japan. In case this incredible opportunity comes to fruition, Bruns will exhibit his range of work in the exhibition “Arigatō, 10 Years at Glen Echo Park” at the Popcorn Gallery, Glen Echo Park. Bruns is mostly known for his large scale mixed media abstract paintings, but in this exhibition Bruns will demonstrate the range of his work including still life assemblages, alla prima figurative work, and mixed media abstractions.

As one of the area's premier photography galleries, Photoworks' latest exhibit strives to initiate a visual dialogue at one of the most divisive times in our Nation's history. The exhibiting photographers' work features everything from political protests to daily life in the D.C. region.

 

As an art institution showcasing photographers in the Washington Metropolitan Area, we are in a unique position to initiate a visual dialog that explores the connections and divisions that currently exist in our nation, and in our national's capitol. Robert Miller, Deputy Director of Photography at The Washington Post will serve as the juror for the exhibition. Miller's journalistic focus on the news, which includes Nation, Foreign, Financial, Real Estate, Metro, Investigative, Outlook and the Digital News Hub. Miller has deftly handled the last eighteen months of the presidential campaign and national enterprise coverage for The Washington Post. He also coaches and mentors the Post's newest photo editing staff members and staff photojournalists.
