Received the following invitation for a new Gallery RIVAA exhibit at the Octagon Gallery:
As Roosevelt Island celebrates its Annual Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival on April 13th, Piotr R. Olszewski, member of Roosevelt Island’s RIVVA Gallery cordially invites to the opening of his photography exhibition, which will take place at the Octagon Gallery (888 Main Street, Roosevelt Island) from 3 to 6 pm.

Drinks and delicacies from the Polish cuisine prepared by Bratek Deli of Garfield, NJ will be served.

Guests are encouraged to wear flowers to the exhibition – in your hair, lapel, around your neck, on the arm... wherever you wish!

The exhibit, which will remain open until May 26th, will feature at least eight large photographs representing the most characteristic and unique elements of the Roosevelt Island’s panorama such like the tram, Japanese cherry blossom trees, Queensboro Bridge or the lighthouse.

A couple of dozen smaller photographs from the island will be displayed on a digital screen. The artist also plans a small happening or installation during the opening.

“Roosevelt Island is an exceptionally picturesque and magical part of New York City, but still pretty much uncovered and little acknowledged. Its interesting location between Manhattan and Queens, with the view on North Brooklyn, combined with unique history and character make the Island a fascinating place to be and photograph,” says Piotr Roland Olszewski, who often visits the island and captures its beauty and uniqueness with the lens of his camera.

Polish-born Piotr Roland Olszewski, photographer and a performance artist, has lived in the New York area for over 20 years.

He has presented his work at numerous exhibitions in Poland, Germany, Hungary, Turkey, Japan, Argentina and the United States.

Currently his work can be seen at various group exhibitions held throughout a year at RIVAA Gallery in Roosevelt Island, which he has been a member of for the past three years.
