Community Gallery

A collection of works created by Jim Saah and Jeffrey Everette.

A bold and electrifying art exhibit that celebrates the raw energy and unapologetic spirit of punk rock culture. Showcasing a diverse range of artworks that capture the essence of punk in all its fierce and anarchic glory.

Reception: Thursday, May 2 from 5 – 7pm

About Jim Saah:

Jim Saah is a native of Washington D.C. and first fell in love with documentary photography during the burgeoning D.C. music scene in the early eighties. Photographing the bands and community around the music got me hooked.

He began to combine travel and photography in the early 1990s. In 1991, on assignment for a U.S. Senator, he documented labor and environmental abuses for hearings on N.A.F.T.A. Finding this type of photojournalism particularly rewarding. For over 30 years, he has worked for several newspapers and magazines, ranging from the Washington Post to Rolling Stone and tons of indies. His photographs have been featured on many books and records. Two highlights were the best selling-book, Our Band Could Be Your Life and the cover of ‪Fugazi’s Repeater record.

In addition to photography, he has also worked extensively in film and video. Most recently, he was Director of Photography on two feature-length documentary films, Salad Days: A Decade of Punk In the Washington, D.C. and CREEM: Americas Only Rock & Roll Magazine. Photography and music have been my lifetime muses; I hope you enjoy checking out my work.

Join Jim Saah for an artist talkback at the Carroll Arts Center on Saturday, May 25 from 6:45pm – 7:45pm. Register for FREE here.
