DCist Exposed

One of the most awesome photography shows of the year, the fifth annual DCist Exposed Photography Show will be at Long View Gallery, running March 15 to 27, 2011.

Out of over 1,000 individual entries, 43 winning images were selected by a panel of judges to be included in this year's DCist Exposed exhibit.

According to the organizers, this year's opening reception "will be twice as awesome, since we’re holding twice as many: Tuesday, March 15, and Wednesday, March 16 from 6 to 10 p.m." This year’s sponsor is Yuengling (America's oldest brewery and makers of the gorgeous Black & Tan beer), and they will provide a selection of their beers, including their Lager, Light Lager, Bock spring seasonal, and the hoppy Lord Chesterfield Ale and DJ Sequoia is back to spin tunes. Wine, soft drinks and hors d’oeuvres will also be provided. Tickets are $10 in advance at Eventbrite, with limited $15 tickets at the door.

To celebrate their 5th anniversary, DCist and Ten Miles Square have produced a special edition magazine featuring the winning photographs from all five years. The issue can be purchased online at MagCloud for $27.50, which comes with a digital version, or at Long View Gallery during the receptions for $25.

Long View Gallery is located at 1234 9th St. NW, just a few blocks from the Mt. Vernon/Convention Center Metro. All photographs displayed at DCist Exposed will be for sale at prices well below traditional gallery shows to encourage new art patrons. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m.
