Hwang Gallery is located in the heart of downtown Flushing, Queens, New York.
Mr. Jung-Te Hwang's latest exhibition, Serene Dreamscapes, features Caddo Lake and Long Pond from the years 2011 and 2016 in their autumnal glory.
Like an artist's essential paints and brushes, Mr. Hwang's expertise with his camera captures the rich essence and beauty of nature during the autumn season. Showcasing Mother Nature's brilliance by displaying her dazzling colors and lights, he brings the earth's fall atmosphere of quiet tranquility to viewers, inviting them to embark upon a mystical journey.
Caddo Lake is a 25,400 acre lake and bayou located along the border between Texas and Louisiana. An internationally protected wetland under the Ramsar Convention, it includes one of the largest flooded cypress forests in the United States. Approximately 10 days before Thanksgiving is when Caddo Lake's beauty is at its peak. At that time, most of the colorful leaves are carpeting the ground, leaving only a stubborn third remaining to decorate the tree trunks and branches. Bright gold and flaming red intertwine while interspersed among the towering trees. As dawn breaks, the forest is a peaceful, tranquil fairyland blanketed in misty fog.
Long Pond Ironworks State Park is a national historic site which sits next to the swiftly flowing Wanaque River. The glimmering lakes and regal mountains are especially reticent during the autumn months. The surface of the lakes are stationary and smooth like a polished mirror rimmed by trees - stark in their nakedness - and their vivid reflections. As the sun peeks over the horizon, the mountains and trees loom silently in the mist - the overall effect evokes the appearances of a Chinese calligraphy painting. Visitors at Long Pond break the water's stillness with ripples as they paddle across the surface in long kayaks. Shuttling across the watery forest, the gentle atmosphere of the earth seems to cleanse each individual of their worries, easing their minds so they may fully experience and enjoy the muted beauty surrounding them.
Mr. Hwang hopes that he may lead viewers into a poetic, dreamlike world full of imagination through his works so that everyone may appreciate the simple purity of nature.

黃氏藝廊這次展出的作品，是攝影家黃榮德在2011年到2016年間，取景於Caddo Lake與Long Pond的作品，以鏡頭為畫筆，描繪兩地的秋季之美。作品呈現了大自然季節轉換時的豐富色彩，繽紛絢麗，令人驚嘆；同時也捕捉了大地之氣與光影之美，幽靜淡雅，令人神往。
Caddo Lake 是一處佔地25400英畝的湖泊和沼澤，位於德州與路易斯安那州的交界，是受到國際拉姆薩爾公約保護的自然沼澤，並且是美國最大的沼澤柏樹森林之一。每到秋季，約在感恩節前十天左右，是這裡最美的時節。大部份的樹葉已落，只剩下約三成的秋葉殘留在樹幹上，金黃、火紅錯落地交織著，點綴在林立參天的雄偉樹幹與銀白龍鬚之間。晨曦時森林中的霧氣渺茫，彷若人間仙境般，更顯幽靜夢幻之美。
Long Pond Ironworks State Park是位於紐澤西州的國家歷史古蹟，依傍在湍急的瓦納克河旁。秋天時此處的湖光山色清幽靜謐，葉子落盡的枯樹林立水中，在如鏡的水面形成美麗的倒影，似幻似真。清晨時湖上蒸騰的霧氣，山與樹若隱若現，景色有如一幅寫意的水墨畫。遊人划著長舟穿梭在水林之中，欣賞清幽中帶著神祕的景致，讓大地之氣洗滌塵世的煩擾。
