Local residents filled the Caldwell Public Library last night to honor nature photographer Janet Markman, whose work is on exhibit in the Library during the month of June. New Jersey’s Angels: With & Without Wings is her latest collection of stunning photographs.Mrs. Markman is the official photographer for the Borough of Caldwell, but her passion is her nature photography.
Though raised in New York City, Markman has been a resident of Caldwell for more than 17 years. She says she has always been fascinated with nature, and relatively recently realized her true creative passion: observing and photographing birds. Since then, her art has expanded to include other flying creatures, notably butterflies and moths, as well as trees, flowers, landscapes and other animals.
We like to say that the Caldwell Library is the heart of our town, but that heart can't beat without the participation of our patrons. We appreciate the generous spirit of people like Mrs. Markman, who give their time and talents to the Library, so that we can continue to bring people quality exhibits and programming.It was truly gratifying to see the number of people who turned out for this event: area residents, Mayor Dassing and our council members, local businesspeople, and many others who came to show their appreciation for Mrs. Markman and our Library. Mr. & Mrs. Markman are known for their philanthropic spirit and their support of many local causes.
Please stop by this month, take a look at this beautiful exhibit, and plan to return for some of our upcoming summer programs. When you stop by, make sure to sign Mrs. Markman's guest book.
