The Mesa Public Library Art Gallery currently has presents 70 photographic portraits by Don Usner of participants in the Lannan Foundation’s Readings and Conversations literary series of the last 15 years.
All the portraits are black and white and eloquently reveal the personality of each author. The library presents this exhibition along with a selection of books by each author and digital access in the gallery to podcasts and video casts of the events on the Lannan Foundation website, lannan.org.
As part of the Author’s Speak Series Usner will give a talk Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on display until Dec. 31.
The exhibition is made possible with support from the Lannan Foundation and the Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries. As the Lannan website states, “The Foundation is particularly interested in projects that encourage freedom of inquiry, imagination, and expression,” an aim so closely allied with that of libraries.
The exhibition’s opening reception was for the public on Nov. 8 with Usner discussing his work.
Native New Mexican photographer Usner has been making portraits of Lannan Foundation guest speakers since 1997.
