Poetic Water Reflections: Oil Paintings and Haiku Poems

The Bozeman Public Library Foundation invites the public to the Art Opening Reception for Loretta Domaszewski on Friday, May 6, 5:30 – 7pm. Domaszewski’s exhibit Poetic Water Reflections will be shown in the Atrium Gallery for the months of May and June. A portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the Bozeman Library Foundation and the Greater Gallatin Watershed Council (GGWC).

Domaszewski is known for her nature-inspired landscape paintings and murals highlighting the Gallatin Valley, and she will be offering a series of workshops and lectures for children and adults, in collaboration with the GGWC. These free workshops are sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation’s Artist-in-Residence Program, which will take place at the Bozeman Public Library, starting April 30 and continuing throughout the months of May and June. Call Paula at 582-2426 for more information or to register.

Originally influenced by the techniques of Master French Impressionists, Domaszewski’s landscape paintings express the essence and beauty of nature, with a Matisse sense of saturated color. Natural earth pigments and oil paint are applied to create rich transparent colors and textures, emphasizing the illumination of light and atmosphere. Domaszewski sees the world through light, layers, and pathways. More information about the artist can be found on her web site, www.lorettafineart.com.

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.
