This summer, Honfleur Gallery and Vivid Solutions Gallery spotlight the communities of which they are a part in two varied exhibitions. The Seventh Annual East of the River Exhibition at Honfleur Gallery includes work by 9 artists who live, work, or have roots in the communities east of the Anacostia River. The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River at Vivid Solutions Gallery presents selections from photographer Susana Raab’s ongoing project to capture the daily humanity of these same communities. Both exhibits open on Friday, July 11, 2014 with reception with the artists from 6-9 p.m.

The Seventh Annual East of the River Exhibition welcomes new and returning participants to Honfleur Gallery’s annual showcase of local artists. The exhibit includes works by Gabriela Bulisova, Yvon Fleurival, Rik Freeman, Lawrence Green, Malik Lloyd, Bruce McNeil, Luis Peralta, Amber Robles-Gordon, and James Terrell. Green will also deejay the opening reception at Honfleur Gallery.

Susana Raab is a photographer at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, and began documenting the communities surrounding the museum with a medium format and a 4×5 camera in 2008. Raab is interested in how these communities have been systematically disadvantaged and treated as separate from the wards of Washington, DC located west of the Anacostia River. The images in The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River are the result of her walks throughout the community, during which she seeks out scenes and subjects without judgement or expectation. On August 2 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Raab will set up her camera in the lounge of Anacostia Arts Center, to take photographs for another project, The Loves and Fears Project. She will be creating portraits with collaborators who will write down their greatest loves and fears. Each guest will receive a digital copy of their portrait. Further details are forthcoming on the gallery’s website.

Opening receptions for both The Seventh Annual East of the River Exhibition at Honfleur Gallery and The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River at Vivid Solutions Gallery will take place on Friday, July 11, 2014 from 6-9 p.m. Both exhibitions run through August 29, 2014.
