ICEBOX Gallery Presents, for the First Time In the United States: My Home, Naples – Wind and Fragrances from Elsewhere by Artist: Luca Sidro / Napoli 2011-2013
“This project is an alternative view of Naples, Italy, a city known worldwide today to nearby places like Pompeii and Capri, locked into a stereotype that only talks about pizza, Mount Vesuvius and the music of the mandolin.”
Luca Sidro is an Italian fine art photographer born in Naples, Italy, where he currently resides. He is a self-taught photographer, inspired by the Italian photographer, Umberto Stefanelli. Initially, Luca devoted himself to documentary photography. Then started using a creative process using an iPhone, which has become the modern day Polaroid to tell an emotional story of reality, through images. These images have a painterly, dreamlike quality and are digitally printed in a square format.
Exhibit featuring Luca Sidro and his photographic interpretation of his hometown, Naples, Italy.
OPENING Reception: Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 2013 from 8:00 – 11:00 PM
Artist Talks by Luca Sidro – Friday, Nov. 1st at 7:00 PM, Saturday, Nov. 2nd at 3:00 PM, Sunday, Nov. 3rd at 3:00 PM

Tidal Music: A Holiday Show of Exquisite Clay Objects and Sculptures by Kelly Jean Ohl
Ohl’s porcelain and stoneware bowls and objects are small, delicate and abstract. They often reference biological entities throughout the natural world—whether clinging to rocks in a tidal pool, swimming beneath the viewfinder of a microscope or intertwined on a forest floor—with compelling non-specificity.
She carves the works’ intricate designs using a variety of household utensils and dental tools. Sanding, firing and hand-painting yields highly textural work layered with markings and meanings. Ohl also often embeds her objects with materials that create music or sounds. Some of her pieces are meant to be touched, interacted with, listened to and grouped into intriguing assemblages.
The exhibit runs Saturday, November 23, 2013, through Saturday, January 4, 2014.
Artist Reception: Saturday, December 14, 2013, 7-10 p.m. This exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
Saturday, December 14, 2013 - Sunday, December 15, 2013
