Creative Minds at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth November 27, 2-4 p.m. (free)

The Creative Minds series features multi-talented artist and photographer Joseph Bengivenni on Sunday November 27, 2016 from 2-4 p.m. in the community room of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, located at 341 Main Street, Yarmouth, NS.  Joseph received his BFA from NSCAD University in 2004, where he studied drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, film, and performance art.  A passion for travel led him to form a more intimate relationship with photography, as he appreciated the realism and immediacy offered by the camera. For ten years, Bengivenni traveled throughout Asia, seeking sacred places, natural phenomena, and human interest. Recently, he’s returned to his roots in Nova Scotia, trading mountains and temples for coasts and lighthouses, seen with new eyes. His images tell stories of beauty, adventure or the unusual. His work is also on display as part of the AGNS “Take Your Best Shot” juried photography exhibit, which closes Nov. 27.
