Off Track Art Reception for photographer Bob Boner will take place July 18, 2014

Off Track Art Reception for photographer Bob Boner will take place July 18, 2014

An exhibition featuring photographer Bob Boner will begin July 1, 2014 and run through August 31, 2014 at Off Track Art in Westminster.

A reception will take place on July 18th, 2014, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Off Track Art partner Nolly Gelsinger recently wrote, “ff Track Art is pleased to welcome July-August* guest artist, photographer Bob Boner.  Bob’s lens captures nuances of the natural world:  small and large mammals, birds, plants, and landscapes.

“Bob is essentially self-taught, though he admits to pestering more experienced photographers with “countless questions.”  He taught both traditional and digital photography at WMC/McDaniel College in addition to his regular classes for the mathematics department. 

“Since his retirement in 2007, Bob has been able to travel to find a wider range of subjects and at home, his growing grandchildren are favorite models.”

In a recent e-mail Mr. Boner wrote, “I became interested in photography in 1968 when I lost my wife's camera in a canoe accident. Fortunately, I didn't lose her.

“I am essentially self-taught in the sense that I have taken no formal photography classes, but pestered more accomplished photographers with countless questions.

“A chemist, an artist, and I taught the first photography class at Western Maryland (now McDaniel) College in 1972. After that, I taught it by myself, whenever I could, in the January Term, regular semesters, and summer school, until the college hired a full-time photography teacher.

“With the advent of digital photography, I began teaching photography again. In 2007 I retired from my full-time position in the mathematics department after 37 years, but continued teaching photography in the January Term.

“My photographic interests are primarily nature/wildlife and grandchildren. My original interest in wildlife was in bird photography. But since retiring, I have been able to get out west in late fall to photograph other species of wildlife.”
