Manchester natural history photographer and retired marine biology professor/author Matthew Paul Lerman will be exhibiting some of his unusual and revealing images at the Dorset Library starting April 1st. His show is entitled “Through the Lens: A View of Life.” An opening reception to meet the artist will be held on April 6th  from 11-1 pm.

Matthew’s photographic images on display at the library represent a sampling of his work that captures the uniqueness of life on Mother Earth. His works in this exhibit range from scenic vistas to emotional portraits of plant and animal life. His deep roots in ecology diffuse into each photograph.

Matthew has dedicated his life to exploring nature and helping others see the beauty and splendor surrounding us. He spent forty years teaching biology in NYC area. In addition he has been a college professor of biology, marine ecology, oceanography, marine mammalogy, and anatomy-physiology at Kingsborough and CW Post Colleges in New York. He has won awards for nature photography from the NY Herpetological Society and from NMEA. In addition, Matthew took many of the nature photographs in the marine biology textbook he wrote, which is widely used in colleges and secondary schools throughout the world.

His work has been on display at the Southern Vermont Arts Center, the Gallery at Equinox Village, the National Art League in Douglaston, NY, and the Gander Gallery in Manchester VT. His artistic portrayal of nature strives to bring the beauty of the outdoors into focus by capturing fleeting moments and unique compositions. 

All are invited to meet the artist at the opening reception. Refreshments will be served and all works are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the library.
