F11 Women’s Photo Group Exhibits Shots of Potomac

A view of the Potomac by F11 and Art League member Jo Ann Tooley.

F11, a women’s photography collective including several Art League members, will be putting up an exhibit in Alexandria’s Beatley Central Library to coincide with FotoWeek DC, a regional photography festival taking place November 9–18 with events including exhibitions, seminars, portfolio reviews, and more. The show, “Down by the River: Visions of the Potomac” will be in the Periodical Room starting November 9, 2012 and features work by nine members of the group.

“Down by the River” follows the Potomac through Williamsport, MD, Harper’s Ferry, WV, and Washington, DC towards its eventual destination into the Chesapeake Bay near Reedville, VA.

F11 has also exhibited at Edison Place Gallery in DC and the Morrison House in Alexandria. The group got its start at The Art League about three years ago when Jo Ann Tooley asked the Gallery for help finding women photographers.

“I wanted to be part of a photographic community,” Jo Ann said. The group meets once a month to discuss what they’re doing and catch up on new projects and technologies. The monthly meetings are an opportunity to learn from each other, Jo Ann said.

“Down By the River” will be on view November 9, 2012 through June 28, 2013.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
