Palm Beach Photo Exhibit by Nicholas Mele

As my artist’s statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance

My mother and I had a photo show in Palm Beach.  Did I mention she's a bad ass photographer in her own right?  Victoria Mele, go check here out.  She does large scale prints of flowers close up.  Anyway, we had a show at EMKO in Palm Beach.  Remember them?  I did a fashion shoot there awhile back.  Man, I keep going of on these side tangents.... One more time from the beginning.  My mom and I had a photography show and it went awesome.  Lots of people showed up, we sold a ton of work and both the Palm Beach Daily News and The Palm Beach Post wrote stories on it!  Cool, right?

Salve Photo Exhibit by Nicholas Mele

You don’t take a photo, you make it.

So honored to be asked by Salve Regina University to exhibit my Newport portrait series along with the talented (and philanthropic) Elizabeth Kahane!  It was a great event, a great turnout and a very fun experience overall.  Best of all, the Newport Art Museum took one of my pieces to put in their permanent collection.  How cool!  

 Looking back, I'm second guessing the bow tie...
