can be found at

In honor of Father's Day, New Visions Studio & Gallery will be exhibiting it's second juried group exhibition. This exhibition's central theme will be family, and the role of a father in the eyes of the artist. The role of the father figure, and the idea of family is of course up for interpretation and we encourage artists to approach these traditional themes in innovative and challenging ways.

Family Ties will be juried by NYC based fine art photographer, Johnathan Michael Lewis.
Johnathan Lewis (1982) received his BFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is an award-winning photographer who has exhibited nationally and is in several well-known private collections. From studio portraits of Gay men which explore themes of body ideals and perceptions of masculinity, to documentary style images capturing life in Peru; the subject matter in Johnathan's work varies greatly. However, the underlying thread connecting each body of work is a precise and methodically trained artistic eye, with a keen sense of color, lighting and composition.
