Artist of the Month exhibition: Emiliano Gonzalez

Throughout the month of March, Gallery on Main's Artist of the Month series of exhibitions features photography by Somerville, New Jersey-based artist Emiliano Gonzalez.

Meet the artist! On Friday, March 3 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., Emiliano will host a free opening reception at Gallery on Main. The public is invited to attend to see his works on view and to mingle with other artists and art lovers. Refreshments will be served.

Says Emiliano, "Growing up in Somerville I never understood my mother's need to constantly take pictures and document events. Why photograph when you can live it? After her passing, I looked through the thousands of photos she took. I finally understood that capturing an image is capturing a priceless moment in time. The hobby quickly turned into a passion. I am particularly fascinated with capturing minute details and documenting the passage of time, regardless of subject. I view all my works as an homage to my mother, and the artistic spirit she instilled in me."
