'Moments of Vision' photographic exhibit on display at Porter Library
The Porter Gallery, located within Westlake Porter Public Library, is currently showing a photographic art exhibit titled "Moments of Vision" by photographer Marcello Mellino, on view until Jan. 30.
Following is the "artist statement" for the exhibit, which best explains the scope and the narrative of the works:
"'Seeing' rather than just looking at surrounding realities is at times difficult and even painful, but so critical in our process of growth and understanding life's moments."
Mellino continues, "The current exhibition highlights several such moments, apparently unconnected but still sharing an instant of magical significance for the viewer behind the camera. The beauty of these moments is often hidden in the solitude or the insignificance of the surroundings, but it is persistently my goal to find an aspect of truth also in the mundane and the obvious.
"As we look 'out the window' there is still a story to be told; we just need to look better and see it!"
The public is invited to a Gallery Talk scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 18, at 2 p.m. for an informal discussion on the current exhibition with Marcello Mellino.
