Grand Opening Celebration of Gallery 270 Featuring The Artwork of Michael Massaia

We invite you to join us for the Grand Opening celebration of Gallery 270’s new home at 10 North Dean Street in Englewood NJ. We are proudly presenting a landmark show “A NJ Retrospective” by Michael Massaia. It features selections from three extensive bodies of work all “made in NJ” by the Bergen based artist and NJ native. Gallery 270 is NJ’s only exclusive fine art photography gallery.

Though the photo posted here is just over a year old, it quickly attained iconic status by being included as a double page editorial spread in American Photo’s annual photos of the year feature . Editor Miriam Leuchter literally “stopped the presses “of the issue in order to include the photo, long after the closing date, to illustrate her point about “the way that the best photography can transform reality into art”.

The show consists of work from three of Massaia’s portfolios and features the “Afterlife” body of work of Jersey shore images from which this image is derived. A portion of proceeds from sales during the show is being donated to Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. The public is invited to meet with the artist on Friday, November 22 between 7-9PM. Refreshments served.
