Internationally recognized artist Jerry N. Uelsmann is presenting 58 photographs from his portfolio in “Confluence,” an exhibition on display Jan. 14-March 1 at the university’s Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery. Open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., the gallery is found on the second floor of the Depot, which is located at 75 B.S. Hood Drive near Davis Wade Stadium.

Uelsmann earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1957 and his Master of Science and Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University in 1960. Now retired, he began teaching photography at the University of Florida in 1960 and became a Graduate Research Professor of Art in 1974. 

A fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and a founding member of the Society for Photographic Education, Uelsmann was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967 and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1972.

In 2012, he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from the University of Florida. His work has been exhibited in more than 100 individual shows in the U.S. and abroad in the last 50 years, and his photographs are featured in the permanent collection of many museums worldwide.

“Confluence” is organized by the University Gallery at the University of Florida, curated by Amy R. Vigilante and made possible by the Gary R. Libby Charitable Trust and Hector Puig.
