“Moments of Confluence” by Michéla Griffith at the Joe Cornish Galleries, 6-30 June 2015

June will see the first of two solo exhibitions in 2015 for fine art photographer Michéla Griffith.

Titled “Moments of Confluence: A River’s Song”, it commences with a preview on Saturday 6th June 2015 at 2pm, and continues until Tuesday 30th June 2015. It is being held at The Joe Cornish Galleries, Northallerton.

The exhibition will feature Michéla ‘s “Streamscapes”. Created in the Peak District using a camera, but often mistaken for paintings, these photographs reveal the beauty and diversity found in even the smallest stretch of water.

“It was an interesting but enjoyable task choosing a title to encapsulate a body of work which has been nearly 3 years in the making” says Michéla. ‘Confluence’ covers both the literal – a meeting of, in this case, of two streams with the River Dove – but also figuratively: my interaction with the river and with water as my subject matter. It speaks too of our relationship as photographers with the camera, with the land, with light. As a phrase it also seems to fit the concept of an exhibition: a further opportunity for dialogue and shared experience.

Like many landscape photographers, Michela’ early work was inspired by Joe Cornish’s images and books, and she is delighted to have her first solo exhibition in the gallery bearing his name. The gallery is housed within Register House, an 18th century Grade II listed building on Zetland Street, in Northallerton. Gallery opening hours are Monday – Saturday, 9am to 5pm.

Michela’s second solo exhibition, “Liquid Light”, will take place at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from 12 September to 14 November 2015.
