Neighborhood portraits

The diverse character of one Washington neighborhood is chronicled in a new show at North Avenue's Westnorth Studio.

Photographers from the TBA Artist group took portraits of more than 100 of the inhabitants of Carrollsburg, an older area of town grappling with the prospect of gentrification and redevelopment.

The large-scale works included in Neighborhood Archive Project are printed on Tyvek, a thin, industrial insulation material.

The show remains on display through July 30.

Westnorth Studio is at 106 W. North Ave. Hours are noon-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays. Call 410-962-1475 or visit www.west
