Photography exhibit at Gallery at Dunia
The Gallery at Dunia presents "Altered Elements," an exhibit of surrealist photography by Stow-based photographer Jonathan Daisy, formerly of Daisy's Market in Carlisle. Using a variety of techniques, Daisy manipulates subjects and surroundings to conjure up lyrical — at times, hallucinatory — worlds. Daisy's images pose visual and existential riddles, bemusing viewers and eliciting double-takes. "Altered Elements" runs from November 20 through January 12. A reception will be held for the photographer on Sunday, December 9, from 2 to 5 p.m.; the public is invited and attendance is free. Ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of Daisy's photographs will benefit the Union of Concerned Scientists (www.ucsusa.org), the leading science-based nonprofit working for a healthy environment and a safer world.
Dunia is located at 43 Nason Street in downtown Maynard. Jonathan Daisy's "Altered Elements" photography will be available for viewing during store hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for Thursday, when the store stays open until 8 p.m.
