“Formation” has been accepted into the 2019 Photography Open at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. The show will run July 15th – August 2nd with a reception Friday July 26th 6-9pm.
“Formation” was recently on exhibit at the 41st Photography Regional at Collar Works Gallery in Troy, NY. The work was 1 of 15 pieces chosen for the regional. Guest curated by Kathleen Vance and Daniel Aycock directors of Front Room Gallery in NYC, the exhibit received rave reviews in the Albany Times Union and the Hudson Valley 360.
The photograph is a section of a Fontainebleau Concretion. These stunning pieces of ancient crystalline sand, water and alchemical forces of nature are some of the worlds most fascinating natural formations.
In 1988, the greatest find of Fontainebleau concretions in the last 350 years was unearthed and Richard Berger was so taken by their exotic beauty, that he contracted to acquire and represent the entire discovery. Fontainebleau concretions from his Masterpieces Of The Earth Collection are now part of the permanent collections of The Smithsonian Institution (where a giant concretion resides immediately adjacent to the Hope Diamond), The Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, The Burke Museum Of Natural History And Culture, and The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, as well as being a prominent part of a number of fine private art and mineral collections around the world.
