“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!”
