What Do You See and Feel?

“Urban Eyes” with Camille Clifton, aka The Girl From Nowhere

The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop is excited to host “Urban Eyes, A Photography Exhibition with Camille Clifton, aka The Girl From Nowhere (TGFN)” running until February 25, 2014 in CHAW’s gallery.

“Urban Eyes is an homage to the marks and signs of life that define or destroy us, between truth and reality,” says TGFN. “The photographs are my eyes speaking and you are having a first row seat to my soul. It is a reflection of my true essence: travel and observations. Being a traveler, I seek purity in all its grandeur and beauty.”

In addition to the gallery show, CHAW and Camille invite you to examine your own reflections on Urban Art through the following upcoming FREE events:
