Photography and acrylic paintings by Ray Connelly and his daughter Meave Connelly-Kelly will be on display at the Casano Community Center Art Gallery through October 14, 2011. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Wednesday, September 28 from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Ray’s photographs of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers in this show loom larger than life. Each of the nine 20″ x 30″ glossy photographs shows them in all their majestic glory, a beautiful backdrop to Jersey City’s harbor of abandoned piers, wooden pilings, and ferry docks.
Meave’s series of 4 photographs “And Then There Were None” captures the horrific sequence from burning impact to their collapsing into a heap of dust.
