“We are thrilled about our exhibit in the Gallery Undercroft at Church of the Heavenly Rest, 5th Avenue at 90th St. in Manhattan. Our theme is Nature as Sanctuary; photographers show images of special places they have chosen as sanctuaries, places of refuge and peace found in natural environments that inspire a renewal of spirit.
The exhibit runs from Saturday, March 26 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm to Sunday, May 8. Please join us and invite your friends and family to appreciate the amazing talents of our members. For further information: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
I am in this show after a long two years wait due to Covid. These are the two I am showing:
Poppy (Papavaracea), Wave Hill, NY 6/15/2016 Bronx, New York City. 20″ x 20″
Poppies, like us, are immigrants. This poppy found a protective home. Nature fights to exist here. Making the green grayer adds an industrial look. The sculptural form of the seed pod mimics modern design.
Plant, Central Park, New York City 8/11/2017. 20″ x 20″
Hiding in a corner of the park I found this tiny plant. Using color selectively makes the center the focus of this plant. An urban plant in tones of gray. I knew how I would process this image to create a mood of isolation as I photographed it.
They are for sale for $400 each. A percentage of the proceeds go to the church and to SPNYC. If you live near NYC, I hope you check it out.
