Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15 at 4pm

Photoworks announces the opening of two new exhibits on view in the Photoworks Gallery, Glen Echo Park February 14 – March 22. Stephen Greenberg’s Somewhere, At Sea, portrays the quieter, timeless moments of dawn and sunset at sea on cruise ships sailing from Vancouver to Hawaii, and New York to Nova Scotia. His images record a vision of clouds, waves, and coastlines of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Scherbel’s Hand Colored Landscapes presents a collection of ethereal images. Experimenting with colored pencils applied to faint black and white prints, the artist draws the viewer’s attention to objects and areas of the images through the use of unexpected color composition. Curator for the exhibits is Iwan Bagus, Professorial Lecturer at American University and head of the Photography concentration at the University of the District of Columbia.

His handmade books have been featured in Three Sisters Magazine and are held in the collections of the Georgetown University Lauinger Library and the Vail Public Library. Over the last three decades, David has shown his work in galleries throughout the Washington DC region, including, most recently, a 2018 solo exhibition “Printing Photographs: Variations” at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Bethesda.
