After an impossible-to-judge contest last December, our 42 winning images in the DCist Exposed Photography Show were framed and hung at Long View Gallery for more than 1,200 guests to gawk at over two packed nights of receptions this week.
Just reminder that the show will be at Long View Gallery through April 7, free during their regular hours, Wednesday though Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 12 to 5 p.m. (The gallery occasionally closes for events, and is closed this Sunday for Easter.) If you are interested in purchasing a photo, inquire while you’re at the gallery or fill out our contact form. You can still buy a 2013 exhibition program at MagCloud for $10, as well as our 2012 program and 5th year anniversary edition (or save on shipping and buy them at the gallery this Saturday only).
We have some major gratitude to dole out—putting together these exhibitions requires a massive amount of help from a massive number of people.
This was our first year having a food sponsor, so great thanks go to Farm to Feast and Alexis Starkey for taking on the challenge of supplying treats for all the Exposed guests. Her D.C.-inspired finger foods were a great way to keep with our community celebration and delicious to boot.
The selection of beers from locals 3 Stars Brewing kept everyone going through the four-hour parties and many of us coming back for more, and double thanks to them for fitting us into their impossibly packed schedule during Craft Beer Week.
We have a huge number of DCist staffers, friends, and photography supporters who lend their time to make Exposed happen. These folks poured the beers, frosted the cookies, installed the show, cleaned up trash, and so much more. Our unending thanks go to Jennifer Wade, who truly went above and beyond, along with John Fleury, Angela Kleis, Nikolai Konick, Kelly Rand, Alex Howe, Meaghan Gay, Sriram Gopal, Aaron Morrissey, Valerie Paschall, Lis Grant, Ben Freed, Alicia Mazzara, Martin Austermuhle, Josh Novikoff, Catherine McCarthy, Brian Mosley, Amit Mehta, Lynne Venart, Sanjay Suchak, and the wonderful staff at Long View Gallery. (Oh boy, did we leave anyone off??) DCist Exposed was organized by Heather Goss and James Calder.
Lastly, thank you to the entire local photography community. Every year it’s such a pleasure to work with so many talented people, who are so gracious, and as excited about putting in the work to make Exposed happen as we are, and we were thrilled to meet many of you for the first time last night. Our 8th annual contest will open this December, so keep your eye on DCist, and go pick up that camera!
