Saturday, August 8, 2009
2-4 p.m.

Harry Taplin was born in Nyack, New York He received a BA in history from St. Olaf College (Northfield, MN) and an MA in history from the University of Pennsylvania. For close to thirty years he worked in medical research administration at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He moved to Chelmsford in 1977 and lives in the second oldest house on Garrison Road. He has had exhibits in Chelmsford and at the Newburyport Art Association, where his photographs have been accepted into juried exhibits. He is a member of the NAA and serves on its Board of Directors.

Taplin has been exploring in and with photography for more than fifty years. His early photographs were generally related to his historical interests and were usually documentary in nature. Over the years his work has become increasingly informed by a developing interest in the arts and by his impressions of scenes that he has encountered in his travels throughout the United States, Belize, and Europe. This month’s exhibit at the Chelmsford Library will span some forty years of work, but will concentrate mostly on the travel he has done in recent years. The photograph above is from Paris.









Also exhibiting this month is artist Ron Hubbard; his works will hang in the meeting room gallery
