1310 Kitchen in Georgetown Presents Elvis at 21 with Chris Murray

by Patrick Pearse on April 3, 2024

On April 24th, Govinda Gallery Director, Chris Murray, will be presenting an audio/visual presentation of Alfred Wertheimer‘s remarkable photographs of Elvis Presley in 1956. The venue is at the 1310 Kitchen & Bar in the Georgetown Inn. Murray co-authored with Wertheimer Elvis at 21 (Insight Editions, 2023) and is the curator of Wertheimer’s museum and gallery exhibitions. Presley biographer, Peter Guralnick, writes, “Alfred Wertheimer got great pictures. Like Elvis, by embracing spontaneity, by prizing feeling over mere technique, he found something new in familiar forms, and the result is work that can stand gloriously on its own, unaffected by the eddying tides of fashion of the shifting sands of time.”

Chef Jenn Crovato will be creating a menu inspired by Elvis’ favorite foods. A good time will be had by all. Registration details are below and all are invited. Copies of Elvis at 21 will be available after the presentation.
