The photographic images on display in Abby Greenawalt’s exhibit, “Perceptions: The Study of an Aging Woman,” aren’t what you would expect to see on the pages of People magazine or Vanity Fair. No Lindsay Lohans or Paris Hiltons here. The beguilingly posed subjects, including the artist’s 93-year-old great-grandmother and 70-something grandmother, are undoubtedly old, but undeniably beautiful as well.

“Age brings wisdom and wisdom is beauty,” Miss Greenawalt, 26, said. “There’s not enough of that today.”

The artist celebrated the opening of her first show Wednesday night amid family, friends and a sprinkling of socialites at the Gore Dean Gallery, an exhibition space for new artists located inside Deborah Gore Dean’s antiques and luxury housewares store in Georgetown’s Cady’s Alley.
