Our Art Galleries
The Gathering Place East and West Art Galleries are proud to exhibit and promote artists from our community. We invite you to come and view the various mediums including photography, paintings, glass, quilts and portraits.
Marcello Mellino has been interested in photography for many years, having recently become involved in digital imaging while still keeping active with traditional film techniques. He works mostly with nature and landscape photographic images of Cleveland, as well as Florida and Italy, where he often travels, producing polychromic and monochromic prints. Mellino’s images highlight natural light and weather to capture the mood and the essence of the landscape, constantly attempting to record the image seen by the eye and often without significant technological manipulation, so that the final result will remain truly a reflection of what was naturally occurring. Mellino’s works will be on display at The Gathering Place in Westlake until March 2014. Learn more about Marcello Mellino at his website.
