CCNY Hosts Northern Manhattan Photo Exhibit

City College’s Compton-Goethals Art Gallery will host “Economy,” an exhibition of 58 photographs by members of the Northern Manhattan Photography Group (NOMA Photo), Wednesday, July 8, through Wednesday, July 22.  Exhibit hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays and 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Thursdays.  The Compton-Goethals Art Gallery is located on Amsterdam Avenue between 139th and 140th Streets.

“Economy,” which explores the meaning and impact of today’s economy through abstract and literal images – many photographed in Washington Heights and Inwood – showcases the work of a dozen photographers. 

“Artists in Northern Manhattan are blossoming, bringing to the table a full spectrum of viewpoints: political, poignant, dispassionate, haunting, abstract, human,” said Dawn K. Chase, a NOMA Photo member who coordinated the exhibit.  “The range in this exhibit is extraordinary: street photography to high-concept.”

This is the second consecutive year that City College has hosted NOMA Photo’s exhibition. “Upper Manhattan does not have a great deal of large exhibit space,” Ms. Chase noted.  “City College’s contribution to the photographic arts in Northern Manhattan, especially our group, is immeasurably important.”
