Larry Kerner’s Photographs on Display at Bernardsville Library in June

June 2 @ 10:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
Free

Bernardsville Public Library is pleased to present "Stay, This Moment - Photographs by Larry Kerner.” The show will be on view from June 2 to June 28, 2019 at 1 Anderson Hill Road, Bernardsville. Hiking and camping while young introduced Mr. Kerner to the grandeur of nature and gave him respect for the preservation of wilderness. The West Coast piqued his interest, and he began capturing images on film in color and in black and white. Since then, his camera has been “his eyes.” His interpretations range from cloud-capped canyons to tumbling mountain streams and waterfalls. The images in this show have been captured on film and digital media. Mr. Kerner is a member of the Chatham Township Art League and the Vailsburg Camera Club of Springfield. He lives in Chatham Township, NJ. The show will be open for viewing during regular library hours, unless a meeting is in progress. For more information on the show, call the library at 908-766-0118.
