Gallery 14 members show their view of natural world

Posted

Gallery 14 Fine Art Photography Gallery in Hopewell, N.J., presents an exhibit featuring the works of gallery members David Ackerman of Hopewell; Mary Leck of Monroe, N.J.; Bennett Povlow of Elkins Park; Barbara Warren of Yardley; and special guest Daniel Goldberg of Quechee, Vt.

Each artist has a different way of exploring and recording their photographic journeys. The exhibit is at the gallery from June 18 to July 17. Gallery 14 will be closed July 2 and 3 for the July 4th holiday. There will be a “meet the artists reception” from 1 to 3 p.m. July 9.

Ackerman points his camera skyward for his series “Sky Light.” He explores the shapes and colors of light from the sky using astrophotography and other techniques to capture the beauty of the heavens.

Trees have fascinated Leck since, as a child, she climbed the apple tree in her yard. Perhaps it was the skinned knees that made her want to explore the textures in the series “Tree Bark Discovered.”

In his series, “The Anthropomorphism of Ferns,” Povlow gets up close and personal with the beauty of the Fiddlehead Fern. These often overlooked and stepped upon plants can be found everywhere. As they grow, they take on many changing shapes and forms.

Warren modifies her camera with a special infrared filter. The world becomes a different place when she alters the colors that one normally sees in this series called “Second Sight – Seeing in Infrared.”

Goldberg, a former Gallery 14 member, has been invited back for the exhibit he never got to have because of COVID-19. He will be featured in the Goodkind Gallery. His “Different Look” explores “My New Backyard” since he has moved to Vermont where he now gets to explore nature on new hiking trails and in undeveloped areas.

Gallery 14 is a co-op artist’s gallery located at 14 Mercer St. The gallery is open from noon to 5 Saturdays and Sundays. To learn more, visit gallery14.org.
