2. "Nicolas Bruno: Between Realms" at Haven Gallery 

Haven Gallery presents “Nicolas Bruno: Between Realms” from February 25 through April 2, 2017.

"Nicolas Bruno: Between Realms" exhibits photographs and drawings inspired by Nicolas Bruno's experiences of sleep paralysis. Surrealistic in nature, the narrative self-portraitures are inspired by hallucinations the artist has experienced during the transient conscious state that causes temporary paralyzation. Also influenced by art history, living in a waterside Long Island town and art history, Bruno's art combine dark experiences, anonymity and anguish with hope, liberation and redemption in unsettling and compelling compositions.   

Haven Gallery is located at 155 Main Street, The Carriage House Square, Suite 4, Northport, NY 11768. www.havenartgallery.com.
