District photoartist Karen Cohen presents PHANTASM, a visual journey that twists and turns the imagination, at Gallery O on H St. (1354 H St. NE). All are invited to the reception for the exhibit taking place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 12th.

Cohen works with digital photography, using software as the brush to transform work into mythical, magical visions. “My altered photographs are apparitions created in the pulsing corners of my imagination,” Cohen has said.

A graduate of Germain School of Photography in NYC and a former rock and roll photojournalist, Cohen’s work was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s library archives in 2012. Exhibiting her award winning work in various art venues throughout the United States for decades, Cohen took First Prize in “At the Walker Open Juried Exhibition” in 2017 and featured three solo shows in the District this year.

Cohen lives on the Hill and spends time as an activist, photojournalist and organic gardener.

The reception is free of charge and open to the public. Phantasm runs from Jan. 12th to Jan. 26th at Gallery O on H St.
