Ferns & ViolinNature Beckons: Landscape Photographs by A. Meshibovsky
January 11 – March 29, 2020. Gallery Hours Tuesday, Saturday & Sunday, 1-4pm

The landscape photographs of Alexander Meshibovsky almost magically reconnect us to the natural world.  A violinist and photographer, Meshibovsky approaches each artistic form with a nuanced interpretation and technique.  He finds correspondences between moods, textures, and tones of musical compositions when creating photographic works of art.

When not performing here and abroad, Alexander Meshibovsky ventures out with his camera to capture the beauty of local landscapes, beckoning us to explore the natural world nearby. The North shore of Eastern Queens and Nassau County are frequent subjects of his photography, offering views of sweeping shoreline vistas, park-land retreats and former estates.

This suite of images are a palpable reminder of the sounds and scent of the sea, bristling leaves as one treads up a hilly path, the quiet calm of a resting water fowl. Fortunately, we’ve retained these settings as parks and preserves, much of it landscaped for our ease of access and enjoyment.

We first met Alexander as a violinist in the Con Brio Ensemble, later to learn about his work as a visual artist. He will be performing with the Ensemble at the Museum on March 22nd.  We’ll host a reception with the artist that afternoon.
