"IMAGES" Photographic Art Gallery

July 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,, and of course I always welcome anyone's comments and interest in my work; the Gallery is open throughout the week, often by appointment, and I would be very happy to extend to all an invitation to contact me to arrange a personal visit for you.

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.

As a photography enthusiast and practitioner, I have always loved and admired the art of "monochrome" images; when the colors are absent, what counts the most in a given image is its composition and content, and possibly the story suggested by the frame.

The July series brings back some images seen before, along with several new ones, which I hope will bring to you an enjoyable moment or two of visual pleasure.

You will find images of nature, of architecture and of water, of course!

You will also see few portraits, perhaps unusual in my photographic practice, however dense with personal emotions.

Cityscapes and occasional "street images" are also present, although often with rare human presence, by personal choice.

To all my best wishes for a safe, very healthy, enjoyable, productive and "sunny" Summer...hoping for a little less heat in the next few months!

A series of wonderful woodcut prints from Cleveland artist Beth Keenan will be on display on the walls of the Blackbird Bakery and cafe' for the next two months; as some of you might know, I have had the pleasure, for the last few years, to coordinate the art works being displayed at the bakery, where you will enjoy great breads, sweets and the perfect cappuccino, and I would encourage you to take the time for a well worth visit soon...buon appetito!

If you have not as yet come to my new Gallery location at the incredible 78 STUDIOS, I would encourage you to stop by soon; IMAGES Art Gallery is now located in suite # 207, with much more wall space available to display vintage prints, photography and paintings, besides my own work.

Most Galleries at the 78 STUDIOS, as well as IMAGES Gallery, are open monthly during the Third Fridays events from 5 to 9 pm, and very soon during Saturdays from noon to 4 pm more hours will be added for your convenience.

See you soon...
