Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
The photographs of Lynne Goldstein, long-time Center City Philadelphia photographer, are being presented at M & H Custom Framing and Gallery, 373 York Road, Warminster, PA. The Opening Reception, to be held on October 26th from 6pm – 9pm, is open to the public. This one-woman show, entitled ‘Reveal’, will run from October 26 – November 11, 2013.
Lynne Goldstein’s photographs reflect influences in her life – nature, architecture, and minimalism. Most importantly, ’Reveal’ is her journey from cancer to renewal, from chaos and fear to strength and beauty. “My photos are upbeat, despite their origins. They are colorful, dramatic, eye-catching. When you look at my photos, you may see different things. The shapes may be recognizable. Maybe a little off-center. Not true to nature. You may focus on the subject. Or what the negative spaces represent. No matter what you see, whatever your state of mind … it’s all how you look at it.” This show begins with a small sampling of photographs that reflect her history of cancer survivorship. But the majority of the show reveals itself as positive statements of life, engagement and joy.
Goldstein’s permanent photo installations can be found locally and throughout the East Coast. Recent shows have included The Art of It Gallery in Jenkintown, Cottonwood Gallery in Colorado Springs, The Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury, NJ, the Third Street Gallery in Philadelphia, and Bauhaus in Collingswood, NJ. Goldstein’s photos have been selected for prestigious juried shows, including those at the Abington Art Center and the Perelman Center for Medical Research at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Most recently, her photo, Snow in Square, was selected as 1st in show in a competition sponsored by the Friends of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Her photography has also been exhibited as part of Philadelphia Photo Day, sponsored by Philadelphia Photo Art Center.
Karen Lentz, owner of M & H, says, “These are photos that pull you in for a second look, a second thought. Lynne Goldstein directs her lens to both her inner experience and the outer world. Her photographs provide an immensely satisfying range of visual material to encounter, enjoy, and reflect. She meets our criteria to give greater exposure to essential working artists… raw artists whose works deserve to be seen by the larger community.”
In addition to private collections and galleries, Goldstein’s photos have been purchased by businesses and organizations who relate to her sensitivity to their patients and staff, including Luther Woods, Pennsylvania Hospital, the Thomas Jefferson Kimmel Medical Center, and as part of the Lilly on Canvas Traveling Exhibit in Washington, D.C. A percentage of the proceeds from this show will benefit the Joan Karnell Cancer Center for Oncology and Hematology.
