“The Art of Commerce€
A Photography Exhibit

PWP (Professional Women Photographers) and Scott M. Stringer, Office of Manhattan Borough President Gallery present an exhibition of photography that views commerce in ways that are evocative, unusual and often humorous.  Members of PWP, an organization of nearly 200 photojournalists, fine arts and commercial photographers, explore their personal visions of commerce with artistry, insight and fresh points of view.  Buyers and sellers, goods and services, motivations and emotions all play their roles in images illustrating the art and drama of commerce.

To mark the opening of  The Art of Commerce, PWP and the Manhattan Borough President Gallery invite the press and public to a reception in the gallery on Thursday, October 7th from 6 – 8 PM, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor, New York, NY.

The exhibition will be on view to the public from October 4 through October 29, 2010.  Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Professional Women Photographers is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization based in New York City.  PWP has been supporting the work of women photographers for over 30 years, providing forums and student awards to encourage artistic growth and to stimulate public interest in the art of photography.
