WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Pepco Edison Place Gallery is proud to host the red carpet opening reception for the Life Pieces To Masterpieces Celebrates Black Brilliance Exhibition at 6 p.m. Thursday. This fall exhibit will run through Friday, Nov. 7.

The exhibition features 50 major paintings from Life Pieces' catalog of over 1,000 pieces, including the unveiling of several paintings created during this year's Connecting Communities Across the Globe Summer Program. Most of these paintings will be available for purchase or lease on site or online through the Art by Life Pieces program,

Also on display will be the 10 highest rated photographs from the 2014 Colors of Life International Photo Contest benefiting Life Pieces To Masterpieces (LPTM). Photojournalists from around the world submitted images for the contest under the theme "Young Men, Big Dreams" to match the emphasis of the work at Life Pieces.
