The next exhibit in the May Gallery, Andrea Dylewski: Point of Transit, opens with a reception Friday, Sept. 28, 5 – 7 p.m., in the May Gallery, located on the second floor of the Sverdrup building. The exhibition will be on view Sept. 28 – Oct. 19.

Dylewski will speak about her work Friday, Sept. 28, 3 p.m., in Sverdrup room 101.

Journeys reveal peoples’ needs, intents, and situations. This collection of images from Washington, DC, the Arizona border region and Cincinnati, Ohio, examines circumstances surrounding and driven by people on the move — the urban commuter, the undocumented migrant, the drop-in to a food bank.

Andrea Dylewski moved from St. Louis to New York City to intern at Annie Leibovitz’s studio in 2000. From 2001 through 2007, while continuously pursuing her own work, Andrea managed studios for photographers Margaret Nimkin, Timothy Hogan and Ilan Rubin.

With them, Andrea worked on a wide range of domestic and international fashion and advertising accounts such as the New York Times Magazine, Elle, French Vogue, Japanese Vogue, Target, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren.

In 2007, Andrea began working with sociologist Harel Shapira on his research of Arizona border culture and the Minutemen movement. Images from Andrea’s visits to Arizona are included in this show; others will be featured in Shapira’s forthcoming book on the subject, Waiting for Jose (Princeton Press, March 2013).

In 2009, Andrea and her husband relocated to Washington, D.C., where she is currently the director of the photography program at the multidiciplinary Sitar Arts Center in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, a board member of the Washington Studio School, which focuses on visual arts education, and a faculty member of Photoworks, a photography education program at the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture.

May Gallery hours are Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, noon – 5 p.m.
