Opening Reception: Artist of the Month - Dana E. Benner, "Look Again"

  • Gallery on Main 30 West Main Street Somerville, NJ, 08876 United States (map)

Join us for the opening reception celebrating Gallery on Main's September "Artist of the Month" exhibition featuring a selection of recent works by photographer Dana E. Benner. Meet this talented local artist, see a selection of her work, and mingle with other artists and art lovers. Refreshments will be served, and admission is free and open to the public. The works are available for purchase.

With this exhibition, Dana challenges the viewer to make and take time to see otherwise overlooked details, to find and enjoy unexpected beauty. She explains, "This selection of my photography focuses on the sublime and often subtle beauty and grace found in many things forgotten or left to ruin. Have you ever stopped long enough to observe nature's palette in the lush ivy draped across an old stone wall, or the crackling paint on a car from decades ago? Do you see color, texture, pattern and form? Do you see beyond what something is to the layers below?"

Dana's work will be on view throughout the month of September. Read more...
