Fortnight of Love

Featuring Virginia Ross

Artist Statement:

"Then the fortnight of love set in."

José Maria Gironella wrote this phrase in his novel about the Spanish Civil War, "The Cypresses Believe in God." During a two week ceasefire all got along and love burst out everywhere.

In this divisive time of our own, I present apostles of beauty and harmony, the flowers. Pause a moment to see them. For they are the essence of the sensuality and grace with which to feed ones soul.

An opening party will be held on Saturday, April 18th, from 5-8 p.m.

On view from April 18 - May 17, 2015.

A Little About CPG

The Creative Photographers Guild is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization of photographers, from novice to professional, whose mission is to bring the universally expressive power of photography to the community.

The Guild also aims to provide a vibrant avenue for the promotion and appreciation of the creative and innovative world of photography to the greater New York community, especially Staten Island.

In service of those goals, the Guild opened the CPG Gallery in March of 2009 on Staten Island's arts-oriented North Shore.

Members also seek other venues in which to exhibit photographs, promote public awareness of the unique artistic qualities of photography, support other artists and arts projects, and share skills and information with the community at large.

All are encouraged to visit the gallery and speak with the photographers, one of whom is always on hand for discussions.
