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.

$45

Everyone is connected to the military, regardless of whether you wore the uniform. Perhaps your grandfather served or your mother or a sibling. As a citizen, your military gets funded by your taxes and deployed in your name. War affects everyone. While Frontline Paper workshops are usually for veterans only, this one is uniquely for non-veterans. You'll transform military uniforms into paper as a means for sharing stories, learning new the techniques of pulp printing and building community. Your instructors--two Iraq War veterans--will facilitate discussions about war, art and the military using the crafts of hand papermaking and writing as catalysts for discourse. Each participant will make multiple sheets of paper (blank or pulp painted). All materials, including uniforms, will be provided. Open to all skill levels, and all images will be communally-produced rather than unique to each participant. For non-veterans only. *Please note, paper must dry for several days after conclusion of workshop. You are welcome to come back to pick it up or you can have your paper mailed to you for an extra fee
