Ben Neumann Art Exhibit Opens April 3 At The Pine Rest Leep Art Gallery

Beginning April 3, Pine Rest will display a selection of Ben Neumann’s photography. The exhibit will be located in the Postma Center Leep Art Gallery at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, 300 68th Street, Grand Rapids.  

Ben Neumann describes photography as his escape, his challenge, his passion. Neumann’s show entitled “The American Landscape” exhibits grand landscapes captured through using both creative vision and technical savvy. Being inspired by the National Parks and great photographers of the world, Neumann expands his imagination with each photograph he takes.  

Pleasantly surprised by nature’s beauty and spontaneity, Neumann’s photography first began to evolve in California. Since then, his creative and artistic photographs have been licensed to corporate companies such as Apple Inc., Harpo Productions and Wolverine Boot Products. The PNC Bank corporate gallery in Pittsburgh, Pa., also has a display of his work.     

The exhibit at Pine Rest will run April 4 until July 2, 2013. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional times are available by appointment. There is no admission fee. For more information, please call 616/222-4530.
