HARRISBURG, Pa. – “Photographs from Cuba” by internationally known artist Jim Hartsen will be displayed in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, from Sept. 1-30, 2022.
For over 12 years, Hartsen has been going back to his roots of street photography, focusing on Cuba and Peru to capture images of simple yet friendly people. Many of the intimate images express both the happiness and deep sadness from life’s encounters and the many challenges and surprises faced.
Hartsen, who graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in photographic illustration in 1968, will discuss his work Sept. 22 at 6 p.m. in Whitaker Hall, Room 214. A reception immediately following at the gallery. The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.
Hartsen’s work has been published in numerous national magazines as well as photographic publications including Aperture. Most of his work is exhibited and sold through fine art galleries.
The Rose Lehrman Art Gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
