“CLEVELAND; a city, its waters” Upcoming Gallery Show

Gallery at Old Stone is thrilled about a new upcoming show beginning March 30, 2014. “CLEVELAND: a city, its waters”, is a photo exhibit by Marcello Mellino; A self-taught photographer, born in Italy who currently resides in Cleveland.

“A city, its waters” celebrates Cleveland, our city, in its symbiotic relation to the lake and the many rivers running throughout; water is in fact the very reason for Cleveland being Cleveland, as the earlier settlers discovered centuries ago. As I wonder around , the unusual and the often not recorded views are the ones I feel most attracted and wish to capture, a testament to the long standing industrial and urban traditions visible in this reality.
As we perhaps approach a new Renaissance, I hope we will be able to continue to appreciate and celebrate the splendor surrounding us with simple, natural renewals, truly a blessing for the mind and the soul.
