Come have an adventure in art. Be among the first to see new works from artist John Paul Caponigro’s series Constellation.

 Caponigro is inspired by the great astronomer Carl Sagan who said “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star stuff.” and “We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” Caponigro combines images of the night sky (many of deep space made by the Hubble telescope) with landscapes found around the world. They marry the heavens and the earth, showing the lands that envelope us with the stars that lie behind, around, and within us. When we gaze at the heavens we see where we came from and what we were, where we are going and what we will be. When we gaze at the land we see where and what we are now. In contemplating both we embrace an expanded view of our place in the universe and ourselves. To find our place within the universe we must find the universe within us.

Join us as we celebrate the wonder of it all.


A second exhibit features new images by Arduina Caponigro.
