June 19, 2014, QCC Art Gallery Opening Reception

June 19, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr. Diane B. Call, President of Queensborough Community College, cordially invites you to the reception of  Afghanistan – A Distant War  by Robert Nickelsberg.

Nickelsberg’s powerful photographic essay captures the brutality and suffering, often amid stunning beauty, of the convulsions that have engulfed Afghanistan. He presents an extraordinary portfolio of images, accompanied by incisive commentary, that explain the country’s tragic history. Timely and important, the exhibition and publication serves as a reminder that Afganistan and the rest of the world remain inextricably linked, no matter how much we long to distance ourselves from its painful realities.

Gallery Queens

Faustino Quintanilla, the museum director at Queensborough Community College, looks over 50 of Robert’s Afghanistan images before mounting the exhibit that will open Thursday, June 19 in Bayside, Queens, 5:00pm-8:00pm.

The full exhibition runs from June 19 through Sept 10, 2014.
