City in Bloom
Exhibition: August 4 - 28, 2022
Opening : Thursday, August 4, 6-8pm
Artist talk: Sunday, August 21, 2pm
City in Bloom shows the everyday beauty of untended flowers and shrubs set against a backdrop of urban structures. The natural scenery intertwines with the constructed landscape, creating a kaleidoscope of colours, textures, and shapes. The unexpected result is an inner-city, rough-around-the-edges Garden of Eden.

Print reviews are open to the public! Bring your prints (any size, framed or not) for a review led by a Gallery Member. If you've ever wondered what others think of your work but were too shy to ask or always received the dreaded "It's nice" response, this is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!
While masking is no longer required, all participants are encouraged to wear masks during the print review, for the safety of all participating.

John A. Benigno (USA)
My work tends towards realism, and my photographs often are described as traditional. In fact, my primary influences come from the early masters -- Porter, Feininger, Steichen, and Strand, to name a few. While I welcome this comparison, realism is merely a means to an end.
My real interest is to capture timeless moments in the landscape, and to stimulate curiosity about how, when and why it has been influenced by man.
Woodlands LXXVII is from my Woodlands Project. Growing up, I was very fortunate to live in a neighborhood surrounded by woodlands. They were a magical playground for us. One day we would play Hide ‘n Seek, be soldiers, then cowboys and Indians, or somewhere deep in Africa on safari. I've tried to capture that sense of adventure, wonderment, mystery, and make believe that boy imagined in those formative years.
My work has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Sales and Rental Gallery, the Magidson Gallery in New York City, and the Chestnut Hill Gallery and the Print Center in Philadelphia, among other venues.
It has been collected by the Berman Museum, the Woodmere Museum, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Lancaster Museum, The Noyes Museum, the Harry Ransom Center, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania. Recently, my “Adobe Church Project” was awarded a grant from the Luminous Endowment for Photography.
My photographs have been accepted into juried exhibits at the Berman Museum, Woodmere Museum, the University of Delaware, the Chatauqua Art Association, Villanova University, the Art Association of Harrisburg, and the Center for the Arts in Southern New Jersey, to name a few. And, "Chappy Cabanas and Edgartown Light" was on loan to the American Embassy in Kuwait, as part of the State Department’s Art in Embassies program.
