Tom Bovo The Other Side of Summer Exhibition Announced

Brooklyn, NY – 440 Gallery is pleased to announce a show of Tom Bovo’s recent photographs, “The Other Side of Summer.” For his third solo show at the gallery, Bovo turns his attention away from cityscapes and still lifes, and focuses instead on the Santa Barbara Harbor. During a recent visit, he worked by wandering the waterfront at dawn and again at dusk. The city was quite a change for Bovo, who was born and raised in Brooklyn. The show opens Thursday, July 9th, and runs through Sunday, August 9th.

Tom Bovo“Santa Barbara is dominated by the ocean, and the harbor is at the very core of the city. Everything revolves around fishing, pleasure boating, surfing, and deep sea diving. Even the building codes are designed to give everybody living in the hills around the harbor, which locals call ‘The Riviera,’ a clear view of the beach, harbor, and Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara is all about the ocean.”

Bovo’s interest in photography started in childhood when his father, a photography enthusiast, gave him a camera. He later studied painting and printmaking at Columbia University and this training is deeply felt in his photography. For decades, Bovo worked in the commercial photo industry in New York City, but has focused on his own work in recent years. His photographs are in private collections in the U.S. and Europe. Please visit the website for more information about the exhibition and related events.

440 Gallery is located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, between 9th and 10th Streets, and is convenient to the F, G, and R subways. The gallery is open on Thursday and Friday, 4-7pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 7pm, or by appointment.
