A collection of candid presidential photographs by the late New York Times photographer George Tames will be on display at the Liberty County Performing Arts Center through Nov. 18.

The exhibit is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at 2140 E. Oglethorpe Highway in Flemington. It will also be open from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 29.

Tames was the New York Times’ White House photographer from 1945-85. His images include Kennedy leaning on the window sill of the Oval Office, Nixon waving goodbye after his impeachment, the “Johnson treatment” photographic series and more. The exhibit is on loan from the Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro.

“Our schools and community are very fortunate to have this unique opportunity to view over 30 photographs of presidential history right here in our own area,” said Liberty County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Valya S. Lee. “We extend an invitation to everyone in the Liberty County community to view the exhibit.”
