Caffe Galleria is pleased to announce their latest art installation , "Timeless Conversations & Imaginations", Tuesday, November 22, 2016. Reflecting Caffe Galleria's commitment to combine fine dining and local art, "Timeless Conversations & Imaginations" features original work by local artist, Dwight Harris.
Speaking about his work, Dwight Harris said, "In a photograph or a painting, realistic or abstract, a moment is captured. In this timeless moment, the inanimate becomes animate. Close inspection reveals conversations, relationships and even friendships among nonverbal entities. The moment thus expands into a vibrant world of imagination where the artist and the viewer know one another more deeply than they ever could by themselves."
Mr. Harris studied philosophy at the New School in New York and received his BA from Penn State. He has been actively pursuing his passion for photography for 25 years following stints creating and developing a cartoon strip and performing standup comedy. He is currently doing digital manipulations called “Digital Paintings” based on his photographs and/or his digital drawings.
His work has been shown at various galleries and juried shows around the area, including the Noyes Museum in Oceanville, N.J., Absolute Abstract in Philadelphia, The Philadelphia Sketch Club, Gallery 125, the Ellarslie Museum and Capital Health System in Trenton, N.J., the Islip Art Museum in Islip, N.Y., the Artizen Gallery and J.B. Kline Gallery in Lambertville, N.J. and the Main Line Art Center, in Haverford, Pa.
