"IMAGES" Photographic Art Gallery

JUNE 2024


Dear friends,

Welcome to my monthly "PHOTOBLOG" newsletter, which I have been publishing for several years and have enjoyed sending to friends and clients in order to keep them informed of my current photographic interests, new works, upcoming exhibits and other Gallery events.

A new "subject" is at the center of each Newsletter, with which I present a short series of pertinent images along with any needed description and details, in order to allow my viewers to become more actively part of the discussion.

Most of the imagery displayed will be eventually on view at "IMAGES" Art Gallery, now located in suite # 207 at the 78th. STUDIOS in Cleveland, and of course I always welcome anyone's comments and interest in my work.

Any of these and other images could be custom printed/framed and become part of your art collection, based on your specifications and desires.

Over the years my recipients list has gradually grown, thanks to your interest and support, and I encourage you to share this "PHOTOBLOG" with friends and art lovers in your circles.

More of my photography on view at

A sincere "thank you" for your interested attention,

Marcello Mellino.

The capacity to "tell a story" with a given photograph is always present in my mind whenever shooting, even though this might not be possibly accomplished all the time.

With this in mind, several months ago I begun posting periodic " FOTO-snacks", as

some of you might have noticed on my Facebook pages, these being individual images totally not connected with each other, whose only purpose is to give to anyone paying attention a little "snack" to savor and enjoy in the moment...

This month PHOTOBLOG is a collection of such "snacks", all of which I have enjoyed over the last several years, and which I hope will provide a similar degree of visual pleasure to you as well!

The CLE "Guardian" image, always a favorite of mine, way before the Tribe became the "Guardians"...

Above, the Terminal Tower within the "C", Lady Justice in front of the Justice Center downtown, a portrait of zucchini flowers at an Italian market, Summer moments on our River and on the beach in Naples, a vintage Alfa, a special family portrait, a beautiful flower... and more!

A discarded Christmas deer, ingloriously ending its days on someone's tree lawn, waiting for its final flight...

Venetian gondolas "parked" on the Grand Canal by St. Mark Square, as they have for centuries! Unusual Christmas decoration seen at a Florida Mall, with, above, a night view of CLE downtown, always exciting to admire...

"Horsing around" outside the Rocky River Metro Park stables, and an aerial view of the main building of the West Side Market.

A quiet early morning moment on our beach; fishing on the Gulf, while a beautiful and very civil heron awaits its share...

A sand castle captured just before sunset, the always spectacular " Chandelier" on Euclid Avenue by the Theater District, and, finally, our "boys of Summer", the Cleveland INDIANS, still on top of their division this year, before they became the "Guardians"...

"IMAGES" Art Gallery has had a new home for the last several months, and I could not be more excited to have had this wonderful opportunity to share my work with a much wider audience and to welcome so many more art enthusiasts to the Gallery, particularly during the monthly "Third Friday" events, when most of the 78th. STUDIOS Galleries are open. If you are not familiar with this venue, you are really missing out on the opportunity to enjoy month after month some of the best, most exciting art Cleveland has to offer!

"IMAGES" Gallery has now a brand new look, with greatly expanded wall space where to simultaneously exhibit more photography as well as a broad selection of vintage/antique prints and paintings from

our growing inventory.

All are invited to stop by and see these and many more new works, as you wander throughout the dozens of galleries found at the 78th. STUDIOS... see you very soon, I hope!

Happy Summer to everyone!!
