Peninsula, Ohio - Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association (CVNPA) is proud to announce the opening of the art exhibit “Botanical Hue” by David Bergholz at the John F. Seiberling Gallery in the CVNPA Administrative Officesat 1403 West Hines Hill Road, Peninsula in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP).

The show opens April 14, 2008 and runs through June 1, 2008, with a reception on Sunday, April 27, 2008 from 2 to 4 p.m. “Botanical Hue” is an exhibition in which Bergholz uses Polaroid and digital cameras to create botanical images arranged in complex collages. Many of the images were taken in Mr. Bergholz’s backyard garden in Shaker Heights. Mr. Bergholz is “a devoted gardener” who says, “The wonders of the natural world have long dominated my photography. I am drawn to photographing the play of light and season in the large garden my wife and I tend, as well as to the tranquility of ordinary household objects”.
Mr. Berholz’s work was exhibited at the Cleveland Botanical Garden in 2004 in a show titled, “In and Around Our Home,” in 2007 at the Massillon Museum; and in 2005, 2006, 2007 at the Firelands Association for the Visual Arts in Oberlin, Ohio. Mr. Bergholz’s conceptual installation piece, “The Archeology of Philanthropy,” appeared at SPACES in Cleveland in 2003 and at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh in 2004. He is currently working on a collection of cityscapes from around the world.
“It is a privilege to exhibit Mr. Bergholz’s work. His talent in highlighting the beauty of nature is a relevant theme for our gallery in the national park,” said CVNPA Chief Executive Officer, Deb Yandala.
Mr. Bergholz retired five years ago having served as the Executive Director of the George Gund Foundation in Cleveland for 14 years. His work is represented by Bonfoey Gallery. He is married to writer Eleanor Mallet and has three grown sons.
