“The photographs included in ‘Serenity in Print’ capture a wide angle perspective and depth of landscapes. The images draw you in to experience all the elements; your eye follows the crisp lines to the heart of each scene,”said Michael Pyle in his artist statement.
“The attention given to light, reflection and details in the shadows,” he continued, “are refined and give a sense of tranquility to the viewer.
“Serenity in Print,” photographs by Pyle, will be featured at the Camera Work Gallery, located downstairs in the Marquis Gallery, 515 Center St., Scranton, July 5 through 30. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception will be held July 5 from 6 to 8:20 p.m.
