Jerry Uelsmann was known for his combination printing of multiple negatives into fantastical photographic landscapes. With imagination and wit, he turned landscapes into conundrums, or re-imagined reality altogether. His photographs are collected and exhibited in museums around the world.

Jerry Uelsmann: A Celebration of His Life and Art commemorates this beloved UF artist, teacher, colleague and friend through an overview of his creative life, including thirty-seven Uelsmann photographs, laid out chronologically, from the Harn collection and his archive in Gainesville. In the center of the gallery will be a small re-creation of his studio with toys, visual jokes, and strange whirly-gigs that occupied his shelves and walls. Uelsmann was also an art collector – much of it hung in his home as inspiration. Selections of these and portraits of Jerry by various artists will also be on view in this celebration of a life well- lived through the artist’s distinct vision, humor, and prolific creativity.
