Washington Printmakers Gallery presents Moving Pictures & Standing Books, March 29 – April 29, an exhibit of lenticular pictures and sculptural artist books by Sally Canzoneri.

Lenticular pictures combine two images so that viewers moving by see one picture from one side and a different one from the other side. In some pieces, Canzoneri combines historic photos with present day images to draw viewers into considering the relationship between events. In others, she combines two versions of the same image. These, Canzoneri says, “are more about using the device of lenticulars to get people to look beyond what is immediately apparent in my pictures – and in the world around them.”

Like her lenticulars, Canzoneri’s artist books use unusual forms to amplify the content of her images, drawing viewers to explore further. As with the lenticulars, what viewers see changes as they move around the pieces. The books also have kinetic elements, with moving parts and the possibility of manipulating them to change their shape and what parts are visible.

Sally Canzoneri’s art has been shown and won awards in numerous group and solo shows. The DC Commission on Arts and Humanities has recognized her as an Arts and Humanities Fellow and has added her work to the District Art Bank Collection.

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, April 8 from 2-4. On April 15, from 4-6, Canzoneri will lead a hands on book art workshop as part of the Georgetown Galleries Second Saturdays series.
