PINBALL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT

Art & Pinball at Country Side Gallery, Newtown PA

Designated as: Small event (< 100 attending)


The photographic work of Charles Acosta, owner of Pinball Photos, LLC, will be on display at the Country Side Gallery in Newtown, PA from Aug. 2-31, 2019. A meet-and-greet event with the artist will be held on Friday, Aug. 23, beginning at 5 p.m.

The gallery is located at 2 South State Street in Newtown. The unique exhibition of macro art featuring pinball machines is being sponsored by Jersey Jack Pinball that has one of the most photogenic machines in the business and artwork of their games will be in the exhibit. The show is also sponsored by PinSound that has been providing their new Multiballs as Acosta’s balls of choice when taking photos of the machines.

A highly-skilled photographic artist and pinball enthusiast, Acosta’s artwork captures the nostalgia, spirit and excitement of the pinball era. Pinball machines have played a major role in the history of modern gaming and even had a scandalous past. The games were so popular that they were once used as gambling devices. They were even banned in some cities as a bad influence on the day’s youth.

Born in the Dominican Republic, the artist moved to the U.S. and was captivated by the interplay of flashing lights and shiny balls as they careened around the machines during game play. He utilized his photographic talents to highlight the machines in an entirely new way with pinball artwork that features macro images and emphasizes the elements of the game. His artwork encompasses photos from machines ranging from the 1940's to the present.

The upcoming exhibition by Acosta will be a feast to please the eyes of any pinball enthusiast and art lovers. The images provide a new and unique perspective on the classic games and his artwork is part of private collections gracing homes and offices around the world. The exhibition is an exceptional opportunity for pinball fans to relive their early experience with pinball and feed the resurgence of interest by younger generations.
