When: November 3rd – December 2nd, 2012
Thursday, November 8th, 6-8pm; juror talk with Brie Castell at 7pm

In celebration of Fotoweek DC, the Target Gallery hosts a juried exhibition that examines how photographers interpret the theme of Upheaval – whether in their personal lives dealing with illness, divorce, death of a parent – or on a more global level with subjects such as climate change, political unrest, and natural disasters.

The exhibition will showcase 16 works by 9 artists from across the country, including two local artists, Sascha Hughes-Caley (Great Falls) and Angela Kleis (Arlington). Other selected artists are Therese Brown (CA), Lisa DiLillo (NY), Jodie Mim Goodnough (MA), Annie Hogan (NJ), Matthew Moore (MD), Brandon Pilcher (NY), and Allison Rufrano (NY)
