Last Sunday Morning, Joe and I bundled ourselves up, got into a frosty car and drove to the Front Street Gallery, Patterson, NY to attend a very special Breakfast Photography Exhibit: Many thanks to Jeremy Wolf, Gallery Director/ photo artist, Terry Ariano , Lisa Kelsey, Tina Quatroni, Cindy Snow, photographers and Michael Hogan, Metal Sculptor for inviting the community and us to a very unique exhibit opening complete with delicious breakfast foods catered by Magnolia’s Restaurant ( located next door to the gallery)
Lisa Kelsey presents a series of photographs she has taken from the train on the way to the city. The photos depict still, beautiful moments in time and place… images she sees along the route as she moves forward to her destination- autumn colors, lakes, trees, a sunrise, rain. With her camera, she catches the rhythm of the commuter train reminding us to look, to really see the beauty all around us that we might miss as we rush by. Likewise, Jeremy Wolf has some beautiful photos of his family and nature. For this exhibit, he presents his photos beautifully on welded metal sculpture stands by Michael Hogan, metal sculptor. . The result is breathtaking.
We spoke to Tina Quatroni about her works and especially about her amazing ability to see beauty in everyday objects that are seldom noticed. Her delightful digital photos are backed with aluminum plating creating a certain grace and elegance to her works.
Cindy Snow’s photo/paintings entitled “From My Grandmother’s Window”, sends vibrant light and color shining from behind birch trees, all dancing in the sunlight. We especially enjoyed Terry Ariano’s lovely photos as well.
Our outdoor thermometers might have been reading 19 degrees Fahrenheit but we were instantly warmed by the beautiful exhibition and hospitality we found at the Front Street Gallery.
The exhibition can be viewed through December. The Front Street Gallery, not only exhibits Artists works, but holds classes given by local artists in several media.
