Gallery 51 presents 51 Doorways:
Photography as an art form by Suell E. Scott. Why pictures of doors? This is a question that has been posed to Ms.
Scott countless times during the 14 years that she has been
concentrating on her unusual artistic interest. It is something that
tugs at Ms. Scott's memory, a constant admonition that she has heard since childhood in the voice of her father that said, "Always close the door quietly behind you," she wonders if she has been led quietly and yes, spiritually to her interest.
On the other hand, "A door can be at the threshold of a new beginning;
a door can be a challenge. A door can be opened and a subsequent
experience can be a salvation; or then again…" Then, there are doors
that were never meant to be opened. However, the door itself might
simply be a 'thing of beauty."
When speaking of new beginnings 51 Door_ways is a perfect opening show
for Gallery 51 which has just expanded their stationery and gift
boutique to include exhibiting and meeting space. Gallery 51 is
looking forward to working with many local and national artists to
exhibit their talent and their artwork. If you are interested in
exhibiting with Gallery 51 please contact them, you will need to
supply a bio and samples of your work.
Suell E. Scott is a Buffalo native. Photography as an art form has
been of paramount interest to her for many years. Ms. Scott has
exhibited extensively in South Florida and this is her first solo
show. She has traveled extensively and her lens has captured the
beauty of the doors on three continents. Some of her most impressive
pictures are those taken in Mexico, Colombia, Italy and now Buffalo.
Gallery 51 is an intimate multi-ethnic stationery and gift boutique
neatly filled with high-quality merchandise. Their recent addition
allows them to host art exhibits in "The place where dreams grow
wings". Located at 567-569 Elmwood Avenue, Gallery 51 features an
extensive product line including fine stationery, handmade journals,
greeting cards for every occasion, natural soaps and lotions, jewelry,
