Oakland, NJ (PRWEB) May 16, 2008
Nature is a significant focus in today's society. The upcoming art exhibition at Ruby Leif, entitled "The Shape of Nature", is intended to create further dialogue, touching on perspectives both obvious and obscure. Local photographers, Meghan Arts and Jim DeLillo will each be exhibiting their perspective on the hot subject.
Both Arts and DeLillo are seeking to further their careers in art and hope to gain some recognition from gallery shows. Arts is currently an art teacher at DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne and is pursuing an MFA in photography. DeLillo, an Oakland resident, actively submits his photographs to iStock http://www.istockphoto.com/jimd_stock, a digital collection of stock photography. Both photographers are reaching for their passion and are becoming more active in their pursuit of sharing it with the public.
Although art exhibitions are a new venture for Arts and DeLillo, you can expect to see a professional presentation of beautiful photographs because neither is a newbie with the camera. In addition to photography, some mixed media work will be present. An opening reception will be held on May 24 from 7-9 p.m. at Ruby Leif, 631 Route 23 South, Pompton Plains to support the emerging artists. Open to the public. Free Admission. The exhibition runs from May 24 through June 14, 2008. Visit http://www.rubyleif.com or call 862-248-0453 for gallery hours and more information.
