Photoworks Gallery at Glen Echo Park presents Signs of Life.  There is more than meets the eye in the evocative landscape scenes in Elizabeth Steuart's black and white silver prints.  Poised at the edge of nature, her images, though unpopulated, suggest an unseen human presence.  Natural and man-made elements are woven together in compositions reminiscent of a stage set, as if the camera shutter were the curtain for an act just completed, or not yet begun.  Enigmatic forms, paths, empty chairs or serpentine walls are visual cues and props lending a sense of intrigue to the scene; the viewer completes the narrative.  Photoworks gallery: Saturdays, 1 – 4pm, Sundays & Mondays, 1 – 8pm.  For more information about Signs of Life, click here
