Photographer Barry Weiser is pleased to announce an exhibition of his photographs at the national landmark , Jefferson Market Library, at the corner or Sixth Avenue and Tenth Street in Greenwich Village New York City. Curated by library manager Frank Collerius, the exhibit will run from December 1, 2010 to January 2, 2011 and will feature recent color photograph's many shot from the new Hudson River Park and three views of his historic murals commissioned by the NY Transit Authority in 1/4 size
The photographs are shown in the library's main reading room on the second floor. The library has retained It's nineteenth century atmospheric elegance, and was minimally altered in it's conversion from a courthouse. The Gothic Revival Library is an experience itself, to enter and walk through, and climb the spiral staircase to the exhibit. Weiser's views of the new landmark Hudson River Park are very appropriate in this old landmark building, anchor of the Village, and his Grand Central mural photographs are complemented and framed by the lively interior of the library of the Library. It really is two esthetic's art experiences melded into one.
