The Little Falls Public Library is proud to invite the viewing public to an exhibition of the works of local photographer Bob Buck in the library’s Community Room, gallery during their regular open hours, through the end of February 2020. Mr. Buck is a photographer and graphic designer from Ft. Plain NY whose photography has been exhibited and won awards at numerous local and regional venues such as The Arkell Museum of Canajoharie, The Mohawk Valley Centre for the Arts in Little Falls, the Albany Centre Gallery, the Paul Nigra Centre for the Creative Arts in Gloversville, the Cherry Valley Branch Gallery, Highwheeler Coffee in Ft. Plain and more.
Mr. Buck counts among the influences on his work, his father as well as Steve McCurry, Henry Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier and Edward Weston, as well as his formal photographic education at Fulton-Montgomery Community College and in the U.S. Navy Ships’ Photographer Training Program. This knowledge is enriched by his membership and/or board membership in fine arts organizations across the region such as the Tri-County Arts Council, the Utica Camera Club, The Arts Factory of Montgomery County and many others.
Among his works displayed at his Little Falls Public Library exhibitions are striking portrayals of local and regional architecture, natural landscapes and a particularly evocative series on the subject of railyards. The Little Falls Library looks forward to you joining them for a celebration of Mr. Buck’s artistic labors, through the end of February.
