Opening Reception Friday, February 9, 6pm-8pm, Main Street Gallery, 213 Main Street, Huntington NY 11743. All are welcome to attend. This is a free event.
“Image manipulation provides limitless possibilities to communicate an idea or concept. Within the body of submitted work, experimentation through digital composites, traditional darkroom trickery, and mysterious mixed media processes were all demonstrated. By intimately analyzing the stories and process expressed through each submission, a careful assemblage of works were woven together to showcase a breadth of unique compositions. It was a stimulating experience to explore the creative visions of the artists that are truly defining the art scene of Long Island.” Nicolas Bruno, Juror.

“The images in this show truly reflect the direction and inspiration of the Juror Nicolas Bruno. The photographs each tell a story compiled by the photographer. It’s fascinating to view the works and interpret the vision portrayed. Please join us at the Opening Reception, meet Nicolas, meet the artists and hear from them directly the “backstory” to each of these remarkable photographs.” said Executive Director, Marc Courtade
About the Juror. Nicolas Bruno studied at Purchase College of New York, where he received his BFA in Photography. With a studio practice based in Northport, New York, he photographs and fabricates props for his compositions. These constructed worlds of uncertainty exist on plane between waking and sleeping pulling influence from the 19th century Romanticists, historical texts of occultism, and dream symbolism lace each composition with various visual dialogues of the macabre. Nicolas’s work has been featured in PetaPixle, Huffington Post, CNN Style, and VIce; while exhibiting at South Gallery in Cleveland Ohio, Passage Gallery in Purchase New York, Haven Gallery in Northport New York.
