Double Vision Opens Wednesday, February 14

We're so excited to be hosting our first photography show at the Nevin Kelly Gallery February 14 - March 11. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, February 15 from 6-9 pm. (see full release below)



Exhibit features the work of local photographers Yanina Manolova and Mark Parascandola
Show runs Feb. 14 – Mar. 11, 2007. Opening Reception Thursday, Feb. 15 from 6 – 9 pm

The Nevin Kelly Gallery, located at 1517 U Street, NW, Washington, DC, will host a two-artist exhibition of works by Washington, DC area photographers Yanina Manolova and Mark Parascandola from February 14 until March 11, 2007. The exhibition, titled Double Vision, will juxtapose Manolova’s posed studio photography with Parascandola’s color manipulated landscape photogaphy. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artists on Thursday, February 15, from 6 until 9 o’clock p.m.

Gallery director Nevin J. Kelly explains “as a gallery that has shown mostly paintings since we established it almost four years ago, we wanted to acknowledge the significant contributions of photographers to the contemporary art landscape in Washington, DC. We chose artists who actively create the visual image (versus those who go out in search of it in the more traditional manner). Yanina Manolova consciously manipulates the visual staging in her works. While Mark Parascandola shoots in the more traditional manner, he digitally alters the color and texture of each image. The result in both cases is a series of contemporary works that have powerful emotional impact.” In keeping with the gallery’s focus on both local and international artists, Virginia resident Manalova was born and educated in Bulgaria, and much of DC resident Parascandola’s work is shot in Spain and South America.

Double Vision runs from February 14 until March 11, 2007. The opening reception is on Thursday, February 15, from 6 until 9 o’clock p.m.
