Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present THERE AND BACK, a solo exhibition of photographic art by Maureen Minehan. THERE AND BACK reflects Maureen’s ceaseless desire to explore the beauty inherent in solitude. Through her artistic vision, she portrays isolated landscapes not as desolate or forsaken, but as sanctuaries where quietude reigns supreme, and narratives yet untold await discovery. It is on view through May 19. Multiple Exposures Gallery is in the Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, Virginia.
