The Breadth Within Art Gallery Brings Art to Roslyn

A

By Georgette Malitsis

n artist since early childhood, Daniella Cippitelli’s dream of opening her own gallery came to life last February. Located in the old town of Roslyn, The Breadth Within Art Gallery has a unique twist, hosting yoga and meditation classes alongside various wellness workshops right inside the gallery. The gallery’s modern aesthetic brings the contemporary art scene of New York City right to the North Shore. You can find Daniella’s abstract paintings and fine art photography featured within the gallery. With her extensive art background, she has served in various senior-level creative roles with ad agencies and publishing companies after graduating college with a B.F.A. in Arts Management. She also holds an M.A. in Media Studies and an A.A. in Commercial Art. At the Breadth Within Art Gallery, Daniella represents not only herself but other emerging artists as well. The art displayed in the gallery is carefully selected to reflect a sense of our deeper selves. She chooses art based on the feelings that are reflected in the artwork, hoping that these pieces enhance the experience of anyone who enters the gallery–whether they are seeking to purchase art or practice yoga. Practicing yoga in an art setting goes beyond just the physical level. Along with the obvious benefits, practicing yoga and meditation in such a setting allows guests to also connect with the art around them. Yoga is physical, spiritual and emotional while art can be both visual and expressive– these 110 | 25A www.25Amagazine.com

human activities go hand-in-hand and together can bring about peace and balance. The gallery hosts yoga therapy for cancer patients through the non-profit Magic Happens Foundation. The idea is to give patients the opportunity to escape the medical setting and allow them to come and experience control over their bodies, discovering peace within the gallery. The gallery lives by the philosophy that what you surround yourself with outside, nurtures what you feel on the inside–leaving the gallery you will feel far more tranquil than when you came in. Stay connected with the Breadth Within Art Gallery by downloading their interactive app, allowing users to see how the gallery’s art looks in their personal space while offering access to their latest art collections as well! The app also works well for interior designers who now have the ability to browse through art on the spot without having to visit the gallery. This convenient and efficient app offers access to the gallery at all times. Daniella Cippitelli’s Breadth Within Art Gallery will continue to spread their philosophy and hope to expand with future locations. She will continue to work with other artists to represent the gallery specifically as a way for guests to experience harmony and balance motivated by the feeling of art. thebreadthwithin.com
