Mark and Master at the Studio Gallery

As a challenge to the famous quote: “Those who can’t do, teach”—Studio Gallery has invited professors from the photography departments of several metro DC universities. We asked for their very best work and we got it. The exhibition runs from November 2nd through November 19th. "Mark and Master" is a varied exhibition with no theme, and almost no restrictions. The work varies in size, color (or lack of color), aesthetic, and theme. Work by AU’s Iwan Bagus and Leena Jayaswal

Opening reception Studio Gallery on Friday, Nov. 4 from 6-8pm.
