FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Professional Women Photographers’ PRESS RELEASE
Professional Women Photographers
& MH Art & Framing Gallery Present
“Americana€ – A Photography Exhibit
January 15, 2010 New York, NY: Americana! Say the word and iconic images
spring to mind – the American flag, apple pie, the hometown team in summer.
MH Art & Framing Gallery in conjunction with PWP (Professional Women
Photographers) presents an exhibition of photography that takes a fresh look at
the American image in a time of globalization and multiculturalism within and
outside our borders.
Members of PWP, an organization of nearly 200 photojournalists, fine arts and
commercial photographers, explore their personal vision of Americana. From
the nostalgic to the elegiac, political commentary to the deeply personal,
documentary to abstract, a rich mosaic emerges. Hung salon style to
accommodate a large number of images, this exhibition opens a visual
dialogue on the view of America from these photographers.
To mark the opening of “Americana€ MH Art & Framing Gallery and PWP invite
the press and public to a reception in the gallery on Saturday evening, April 17,
2010 from 6 – 9 PM, 9 West 20th St. (between 5th and 6th Aves.),
