About this event

SOHO – Space of Her Own – Photography Exhibit
April 4-May 7, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 13, 6:30-8:00 pm

An Exploration of Self Through Photography

The Art League presents this special exhibit of artwork created by the participants in Alexandria’s Del Ray/Old Town and West End SOHO program groups.

SOHO – Space of Her Own – is a program where at-risk, 10-year-old youth meet at The Art League for hands-on visual art experiences led by practicing artists. The projects in this year’s visual art curriculum led to this engaging exhibit. This program is the result of a special collaboration between SOHO, Inc., The Art League, Inc. and Alexandria’s Court Service Unit

The inspiration for this project is in the pairing of life skills lessons taught at SOHO with individual artistic expression through traditional methods of photography. Art League instructors worked with the girls and their mentors to create life-sized self-portraits and candid photographs highlighting self-identified positive attributes. The girls and their mentors then experienced the hands-on production of the photos through darkroom technology.

The Art League’s visual arts content empowers and inspires the girls in the SOHO program to express themselves in creative ways. These special projects not only create the beautiful artwork you see on the walls—these hands-on visual arts experiences are a catalyst for positive social engagement, artistic exploration, and expressive catharsis.
