MCL Presents Artist Matthew Lerman
The Manchester Community Library invites you to the gallery opening of our newest exhibition . Matthew Lerman is a photographer with a strong and focused mission : to teach the viewer , through his or her visual sense , to see the myriad of intricate connections within our living world , and thus to love and protect the biology and natural beauty of the biosphere . A former professor of marine biology , ecology , oceanography , marine mammalogy at CW Post College , Matthew has dedicated his artistic life to exploring nature and helping others see the beauty and splendor surrounding us . He feels that photography allows him to capture and portray a sampling of the biological events occurring . Matthew ’ s artistic portrayal of nature strives to bring the beauty of the outdoors into focus by capturing fleeting moments and unique compositions . Matthew ’ s coolest and most realistic pictures are printed on aluminum and canvas and are so lifelike that it feels like looking through a window at the real world . Come celebrate the Majesty , Glory , and Brilliance of the Earth on December 9 at 6pm in the company of Matthew Lerman himself and take advantage of the opportunity to talk to the artist about his artistic choices and inspirations .
It is the mission of the Manchester Community Library to be open to all as an inspiring gathering place for the community , providing opportunities and resources for personal enrichment and growth . For current hours and programs , please visit mclvt . org or call 802-362-2607 .
