The LAVA Center at 324 Main St. will display an exhibit of photography by Joseph Ackerman in March.
Ackerman, a broadcast journalist for 35 years who witnessed the evolution of the industry from film to video to digital broadcasting, was born on Long Island and raised in Chicago, where his love of imagery began at age 10 while attending after-school art classes at William H. Ray Elementary School and a neighborhood community center. His exploration of a variety of media continued through high school and into college, where he settled on photography as his means of expression. In retirement, he immerses himself in nature, photographing whatever moves him.
The gallery is open Mondays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. and during special events. Masks are required. For more information, visit thelavacenter.org.
