Jerry Uelsmann at Durham art gallery Through This Lens
artGuide Magazine is excited to present Durham art gallery Through This Lens' new exhibit through October 15, showcasing prints from renowned photographer Jerry Uelsmann.
Jerry Uelsmann has long been a legend in the photographic world. His well-known work began in the late 1950s. Today he continues to produce new work in his darkroom. Even today Mr. Uelsmann’s work is strictly analog, but hardly old school. Through This Lens is proud to show 25+ prints provided by the artist and by local collector(s) for this special exhibition. Most work will be available for purchase and all will be remarkable examples of the highest level of imagination and skill.
Mr. Uelsmann received his BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in fine art photography as a member of the golden class of 1957. He later received advanced degrees from Indiana University. His teaching career began at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1960 and taught there until his retirement. He continues to live and make art in Gainesville. Uelsmann has more than 20 publications to his credit and has exhibited his photographs in more than 100 US and international venues. His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, the Bibliotheque National in Paris, and too many others to list.
Jerry Uelsmann’s work will be on display from Friday, September 16, 6-9 PM through Saturday, October 15, 2016. The artist will speak at the Nasher Museum in Durham at 3PM on Sunday, October 2 – with a reception following at Through This Lens.
