At 84, local photographer Jerome Greenberg has witnessed seismic shifts in the landscape of his native city and in the tools of his chosen medium. On Saturday, as part of a series of events celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Amherst Street staple Artsphere Studio and Gallery, Greenberg will share stories about his life in Buffalo and his 70-year photography career.
Greenberg’s photographs include street scenes of a city that has long vanished, as well as sensitive portraits of personalities whose names no longer register, or never did. He will be joined by painters Milton Weiser and Jacqueline Welch, who will also talk about their own successful art careers, which have been featured in solo exhibitions at Artsphere.
Saturday’s talks are part of a series that coincides with the gallery’s 10th anniversary show, which runs through April 27. The final talks in the series, featuring photographer Bogdan Fundalinski and mixed media artist Michelle Mazur, are slated for the final day of the exhibition. – Colin Dabkowski
