FEATURED EXHIBIT MAY/JUNE 2017. Carl Nardiello is a photographer interested in capturing the ordinary moments in a landscape. By returning to a specific area day after day in one particular season, he creates an ongoing study of it. The nuance and detail of that place emerge through this careful process. Nardiello describes the photographs in this exhibit:
“A series of ongoing photographic studies inspired by the forms, color, and light of late fall and winter. When the dominant foliage of summer falls away, fresh layers of landscape reveal themselves. Each day, each shift of weather and wind, create new contexts. The capture of such images is one of feeling, of intuition, and a precise use of technology.”
Nardiello knows what he is talking about when it comes to technology. He is a professional photographer known for specializing in high end Asian Art for museums, collectors, galleries, and publications based in New York City. He operated a studio in the photo district of Manhattan (Chelsea/Flatiron) moving to the Northampton area several years ago. His emphasis is on making fine prints, which he did for many years in the darkroom. The prints in this exhibit are digitally produced on archival paper using pigment inks, currently known as Giclée, or prints that are made to archival standards. With proper care, the prints will last 100 years.
Take the time to look through Nardiello’s lens. His photographs make very available to the viewer the atmosphere of his subject landscapes, one specific place at a time. Exhibit runs from May 5 – June 25, reception for the exhibit is Saturday, May 13, 4-6pm, with music by Al Canali. For more information, www.SalmonFallsGallery.com or call the gallery at 413.625.9833.
