“May 2 – 31, 2015:
Ann-Marie VanTassell: NASCAR series
Gallery Hours: Saturday 1-6pm, Sunday 12-5pm
Artist Reception / Tailgate Party: Saturday, May 16, 12-5pm

Coming up in May, artist Ann-Marie VanTassell presents an installation that peers into the world of NASCAR – the largest spectator sport in America. In a style reminiscent of anthropological photographer, Catherine Opie, the artist presents portraits of the everyday people that bring the sport to life.

I photograph people that I think are fascinating. That is not to say my photographs do not say anything about me. Whether I admire my subjects for their beauty, character, or strength, something about who they are helps me discover something about myself.
-Ann-Marie VanTassell

Ann-Marie VanTassell is a Washington, D.C. based photographer, graduate of the Corcoran School of Art + Design with a BFA in photojournalism, and a current Resident Artist at Pleasant Plains Workshop. Join us for a tailgate party celebrating the exhibition at PPW on May 16th!”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
