The Photoworks Gallery is pleased to present Listen Up! This documentary competition, the 6th annual juried show for young photographers, comes at a time of unprecedented student involvement and activism. Students are able to show their work and perspectives of the past year.

Emily Whiting will be the juror. Emily Whiting has worked with young photographers as a member of the faculty at Photoworks for more than 10 years, teaching classes in darkroom printing, digital editing, book-making, and documentary street photography. Currently, she is collaborating with Rhyme & Reason, a humanities enrichment program founded by University of Pittsburgh faculty, to mentor student photographers in Pittsburgh's Homewood neighborhood. Their work documenting life in Homewood was exhibited at the Ace Hotel in April at the opening of "Old Paths New Beats: East Side Youth Tell It Like It Is." Emily has an undergraduate degree from Vassar College and an MBA from the George Washington University.

The Photoworks Gallery is pleased to present Places We Find. This exhibition has photographs by two photographers, Sandy Sugawara and Catiana Garcia Kilroy.

Sandy Sugawara's photographs are framed around objects encountered in everyday life, things like washing machines, electrical cords, office phones, window shades and bus stops. They are the kind of objects that rarely warrant a second glance. Yet when a splash of sunlight or an unexpected spot of color appears, an otherwise mundane object can take on an otherworldly radiance. This is the kind Sugawara seeks to find, intimate scene with a quiet energy, a place where viewers can learn to exhale.

Catiana Garcia Kilroy's photographs are about showing how common places can become a source of surprise and discovery. With this objective, their framing puts together unexpected fragments of place, objects or people. Or scenes in they use scenes in the forefront of the photograph, forcing viewers to slow down the process of seeing and discovery. By making viewers slow down, Kilroy hopes to help them pay more attention to details and unexpected interactions between objects, colors, and shapes.
