    BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famer and
 Artist Graham Nash is most well known for his phenomenal music career, both as
 a founding member of The Hollies, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Crosby, Stills,
 Nash and Young, and as a solo artist.  He has been involved with some of the
 most important, influential -- and best -- music and humanitarian events of
 the last four decades.  Graham Nash is an equally gifted fine art
 photographer, and his "New York Portfolio" has its inaugural exhibition at
 Howard Schickler Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, opening May 24, 2001 from
 7-9PM.  The show will run through July 20.
     Nash's "New York Portfolio," which encompasses twelve immediately striking
 black and white images, will be both hung and displayed in portfolio format at
 the Schickler gallery.  The photographs are all 16" x 11" Iris Prints on
 Somerset Velvet paper by Nash Editions of Manhattan Beach, CA, the
 state-of-the-art digital Photographic printing company that Mr. Nash recently
 launched with partner Mac Holbert.
     Of his Gotham-themed "New York Portfolio" Nash says, "New York City is a
 wonderful place of chaotic extremes.  You can find the deepest peace,
 overwhelming beauty, and the ugliness of the human experience gathered in the
 same moment.  My work relates to that unrelenting quality of urban
     The elegant portfolio includes amongst its dozen images ones entitled
 "Subway," "Jack at MOMA," "Baseball," "Horse," and "TV Self Portrait."  While
 the immensely engaging photographs may share some of the straightforwardness
 indicated by their titles, they are at the same time full of all the mystery
 and complexity of New York itself.  Curator Dennis High of the Center for
 Photographic Art writes in his introduction to the portfolio:  "We are caught
 in the glare of neon by an artist who creates from the menu of the street.  He
 does not favor the object nor the person, they are all part of the visual
 composite, a chine colle of light and composition that constructs the
 statement of -- The City."
     Simultaneously showing at Schickler with "New York Portfolio" are the Nash
 Edition Iris Prints of Robert Weingarten's exquisite landscapes.  Both artists
 will be present at the May 24th opening.  Originally founded in 1975, Howard
 Schickler Gallery moved in 2000 to Brooklyn's "D.U.M.B.O." waterfront area
 directly under the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, an emerging artists'
 enclave with warehouses dating back to the Civil War era.  They are known for
 their specialization in photographic images.
