Exposed DC is pleased to announce its 8th annual Exposed DC Photography Show at Long View Gallery, from March 19 to April 6, 2014. After seven wonderful years with DCist, we’re now closing in on our first year since we launched as an independent, year-round venture last June, and we’re proud to say it’s been a success. We’re working hard to cultivate the local photography community, from hobbyist to professional, with our website that features interviews with local talent, reams of informational guides for everything from studio rentals to photography classes, and a calendar highlighting every photography event in the region. We’ll continue to build on this community that our annual exhibition has created through exciting new features and events in the coming year.
Our 49 winning photographs were chosen from a contest for their unique view of the Washington area – not as a political venue or tourist destination, but as a place where we live and work and love every day. Six of those photographs will be awarded our inaugural Best in Show award and $100 prize, chosen by a panel of distinguished metro-area photojournalists, and made possible by the Corcoran College of Art + Design.
Our opening reception will be held in Long View’s newly expanded 9,000 square foot gallery space. Local businesses will complete our celebration of everything Washington, with beer from the new Bluejacket Brewery, wine from Boxwood Winery, Cavanagh Family Imports and A&M Imports, and a delicious selection of bites from Founding Farmers and Farmers Fishers Bakers, Tel’Veh Wine Bar, and Everlasting Life Vegan Restaurant. We’ve invited DJ Sequoia and v:shal kanwar back to spin tunes.
Tickets are $15 in advance, with limited $20 tickets at the door.
Join us for a free after party in The Passenger’s theater. 8 p.m. to close, cash bar.
A full-color Exhibition Program with the 2014 winners will be available for $10. The special issue 5th Anniversary Magazine from 2011 will also be available for $25. At the reception only, guests can purchase them together for $30.
Long View Gallery is located at 1234 9th St. NW, just a few blocks from the Mt. Vernon/Convention Center Metro. All photographs displayed will be for sale. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m. Free.
The 2014 Exposed DC Photography Show is a Ten Miles Square LLC production.

Photographers of the D.C. metro area, are you ready? The Exposed DC contest for our 2014 exhibit officially opens on December 4. We’ll have more details about how to enter soon, but start looking for your best photos that show off our local culture — or go out and take some! Check out winners from the previous seven years for some inspiration.
As always, the exhibition will be hosted by Long View Gallery next March. The gorgeous, huge gallery is implausibly EVEN BIGGER this year. They’ve taken over the space next door, and we are prepared to make use of every square inch.
While we celebrate the D.C. area in pictures that night, we also want you to try out new local flavors, so we’re proud to announce our 2014 beer sponsor, Bluejacket Brewery. The brewery, which opened last month in Navy Yard inside a former ship boiler factory along with its bar and restaurant, The Arsenal, will feature a constantly rotating selection of twenty original beers and five cask ales.
Bluejacket was built to be a brewery without boundaries, allowing Beer Director Greg Engert and Brewmaster Megan Parisi to create beers across the broadest range of styles and flavors possible. At Bluejacket, understanding of and respect for the traditions and techniques of classic brewing coexist with a spirit of constant experimentation, innovation, and collaboration, leading to delicious beers that showcase seasonality, culinary inspiration, and historic interpretation. Expect beers that range from intensely flavored to subtly nuanced; that offer something distinctive and satisfying for every palate and every plate; and that reflect equally the past, present, and future of genuine craft brewing. Soon, the brewery will begin shipping to carefully selected restaurants, bars, and retail outlets throughout the region.
Where better to toast to the kick-off of our annual contest than with a meetup at Bluejacket/Arsenal? Join us on Wednesday, December 4 at 6 p.m. to meet the folks behind Exposed, former (and future) winners, and the patrons and photo lovers who keep us all behind the lens. Bring friends and enjoy some unique D.C. brews with us.
