Town Talk

The exhibit features astro-photography by Bob Fisher of Olmstedville and unique perspectives on the nature, mountains and towns of the Adirondacks by Jerry Wein of Paradox, NY.

Long before they met in 1980, Wein and Fisher had each devoted much of their spare time to the art of photography. Wein worked primarily with black and white portraits including musicians and children.

Fisher's primary interest has centered on the night sky. He began to experiment with astro-photography in his teens after building a telescope in his basement

In the early 1980s, both Fisher and Wein became interested in exploring the Adirondacks, camping with their families and climbing many of the high peaks together, always with cameras in tow. Nature photography became a shared passion, and in pre-digital times they spent many a winter evenings teaching themselves color printing in Wein's darkroom. Wein still enjoys working in black & white, but his photographic interests have expanded to include a range of approaches to the Adirondack landscape, as well as cityscapes, poster art, and digitally enhanced experimental work.

Since 2007, Fisher's flower photos have been appearing nationally in Wildflower Magazine.

Willows hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information on the Bistro, call 504-4344.
