Jack Kligerman photographs @ Bozeman Public Library

The Bozeman Public Library Foundation invites the community to the Artist Opening Reception on Friday, January 14, 5:30-7pm for Jack Kligerman’s exhibit Set in Silver: Recent Photographs in the Atrium Gallery. Refreshments will be served. This unique display of silver bromide prints from surrounding national parks, including Yellowstone, Zion, Arches, and Bryce Canyon, as well as from Turkey, Paris, and England, will be on display through the end of February.

“Even though I photograph wherever I find myself with my camera, the natural world is where I currently feel most comfortable,” said Kligerman. “In the years I have lived abroad, I have focused in addition on aspects of the city.” He claims photographs are made, not taken, resulting in the abstract, one-of-a-kind prints found in his shows.

Kligerman is Professor Emeritus and pas Chair of the Department of English at Lehman College, where he also taught courses in black and white photography and the History of Photography. He has written about American Literature, photography, and nature, and his photographs and essays have appeared in various publications, including Organic Gardening and Smithsonian. In addition to exhibiting in the Atrium Gallery in 2007, Kligerman has also had one- and two-person shows in galleries in New York and New Jersey. He retired to Bozeman in 2003.

All artwork is for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Bozeman Library Foundation to benefit the Library. Contact Paula Beswick at director@bozemanlibraryfoundation.org or 582-2426 for more information about this show or the gallery.

    Dear Professor Kligerman, It was great to find your name on this site and to look at another great picture. I hope you and all the family well and safe. Thinking about you always and why I never asked for one of your black and white photographs that you had on the wall in the office. You will always be one of my favorite professors and chairman. Working for and with you was a special time in my life and my family. My daughter and son both have three children, Michelle has the girls and Rene’ has the boys. Hope your grandson and family are well. Looking at all the tornado action in your area and pray that all of you are safe. God Bless You always, I remain, Your former Secretary at Lehman College.
