Capitol Hill Arts Workshop Hosts Photography Exhibit and Lectures

December 15, 2005–The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop hosts a Juried Photography Exhibition and Reception on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and again on Saturday, January 14, 2006 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The exhibition kicks-off a series of photography lectures on Tuesday evenings throughout the month of January to celebrate the re-opening of the Arts Workshop’s renovated darkroom and digital computer lab. All events are free and open to the public.

The Arts Workshop’s Director, Jonathan Darr, says the show marks the beginning of the new photography program at the Arts Workshop. “This show is a great opportunity to share the Arts Workshop’s reinvigorated commitment to photography classes and exhibits. It coincides with the planned opening of our new darkroom facilities and digital arts studio, which have been under construction for the past year. We’re hoping the Arts Workshop will become an engaging and educational home for those interested in all forms of photography.”

The Arts Workshop presents the following lectures throughout the Photography Exhibition on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m.:

• Tuesday, January 17, 2006: Photographers Chan Chao, Roberto Bocci, and Franz Janzen speak on their work.
