Brooklyn, NY: Gallery House presents STYLE OF NATURE by Jonathan Levy
Gallery House will open its doors to the public with a solo exhibit Style of Nature by Jonathan Levy. August 8, the gallery will be open by appointment. Through Jonathan Levy’s work (www.styleofnature.com), he attempts to glorify Mother Nature and her creations. His paintings reflect imagery found in nature, representing mankind’s collective beginnings marked by the patterns and movements that exist around us. Ranging from the repetitive design of a flower, to the rhythm and flow of the ocean, Levy’s work, through subject matter and process, reflects the unpredictable temperament of nature. In the spirit of “green,” Gallery House is marking its Grand Opening by donating 50% of the proceeds to CENYC. “Our partnership with Jonathan Levy and Gallery House for Style Of Nature reflects a shared vision of preserving the natural beauty of New York City,” said CENYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen “Like Jonathan’s philosophy, everyday CENYC staff, volunteers, and the youth we serve roll up their sleeves to create and preserve green spaces, plant trees, and restore habitats and shorelines in hopes of contributing to a healthy environment.”
