Lauren Henkin’s Growth Opening this Friday at The Gallery at Vivid Solutions in Anacostia

COME ON ACROSS THE RIVER, Y’ALL, WE GOT PARKING!

(this is my personal contribution to DC slogan mongering)

The inspirational Lauren Henkin is having a show opening at Vivid Solutions this weekend.  Also uber artist and serious rocket scientist Peter Krsko will be part of an exhibit this weekend.  Both openings are on Friday Sept. 20 from 6-9.  I’m going to try and make it at the top.

Growth
Lauren Henkin

It was not until after photographer Lauren Henkin had undergone surgery to remove slow-growing benign tumors that she began to identify connections between her photographic inclinations and her health issues. Growth is the collection of landscape photographs that resulted from this point of connection. Henkin photographs discovered disruptions to the urban landscape made by the natural world, scenes that she sees as both invasive and reclaiming.
