Artistry and athleticism is the focus on "Embrace Every Angle," a group photography exhibit and fundraiser currently on view at Carlson Cowork (60 Carlson Street).
Eleven photographers have collaborated with artist and yoga and fitness instructor, Liza Savage-Katz, in creating unique images of people engaged in yoga poses in various environments of Rochester. The project has served a journey toward body acceptance and self-love for Savage-Katz, who has struggled with an eating disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder for years.
The exhibiting photographers are Jasna Bogdanovska, Vashon Jamal Broyld Sr., Kris Dreessen, Tracy Grier, Jen Facteau, Teri Fiske, Lindsay Kathryn Jewett, Bailey Johnson, Darren Miller, Nitin Sampat, Janine Susz, and Amy Vena. In addition, "Filling the Void," a 6-foot collaborative painting by Savage-Katz and Facteau, will be exhibited.
A quarter of proceeds from sales will support a variety of charities, including Verona Street Animal Shelter, The Friends Project, Moonshadows Spirit, The Lost Boys of South Sudan Fundraiser, Living Water, Pachamama Alliance, ARC of Monroe, Heal the Bay, Rochester Community Rowing, Women's Foundation of Genesee Valley, Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, and Synthesis Collaborative.
The show remains on view through the beginning of February. The cowork's hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 624-5510 or visit embraceeveryangle.com.
