Bob Fisher’s first solo photography show, his third at the Chestertown Library, will be at the Ruplin Gallery from April 1-30, with a reception on April 12 from 4 to 5 p.m. “Thirty Years of Astrophotography” will include images from the 2017 Eclipse, some never before shown, and many other celestial phenomena shot from his home turf in Olmstedville, and other locations throughout the continental United States.

Fisher first saw the dark skies of the Adirondacks as a child on summer camping trips near Speculator. At age 15 he built his own telescope in his Paterson, NJ basement, and began to experiment with astrophotography. His work has received awards from LARAC and North Country Arts, and has been included in juried shows from Old Forge to Gloversville.

His images have been featured in national magazines, including Adirondack Life and Wildflower, and online in The Light/Space/Time Gallery,, and Adirondack Explorer. Bob’s work appears frequently at Ticonderoga Arts, LARAC and the North Country Arts Gallery at the Shirt Factory. His newest work can be seen in the H’ART Studio and Gallery in North Creek and at Birds of a Feather in Chestertown.
