At the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell, Montana, “Shadow Catcher” is on display. This is the first in a series of exhibits of photographs taken by Harry Lee Harpster, Jr. In 2010, the Hockaday purchased his photographic estate that consisted of several black and white gelatin silver prints, 35 mm black and white negatives, 4×5 negatives and miscellaneous family photographs and memorabilia. Margaret S. Davis, the curator for the exhibit, decided to focus on Harpster’s photos of Indian reservations and his photos of children in the reservations. The exhibit will be on display until February 20, 2016 and the admission is free. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
