Members’ Show 

. . .

Thursday, Nov. 21 – Thursday, Jan. 2, 2020
Opening Reception / Thursday, Nov. 21, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

An annual tradition, the Members’ Show serves as a valuable showcase for our members’ work, all while commemorating their contributions to our organization. Each member of The Light Factory can submit one piece, which must be matted, framed, and ready to hang. In our opinion, it’s the best possible way to close out the calendar year.

A Shared Elegy

. . .

Thursday, Jan. 16 – Friday, Mar. 13, 2020
Opening Reception / Thursday, Jan. 16, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

A Shared Elegy presents two pairs of photographers connected by family ties. Osamu James Nakagawa and his uncle, Takayuki Ogawa, and Elijah Gowin and his father, Emmet Gowin, present unique but overlapping visions recording family histories. Nakagawa, like his uncle, Ogawa, grew up in Japan and draws upon his country’s traditions and the practice of honoring elders; family heritage and home in Virginia have inspired the Gowins to make photographs that depict the intimate and hallowed nature of the world. These photographs compel us to reflect and consider our place in the cycle of life.
