In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and the local author of that legislation, this exhibition features four large-scale works each by many of the nation's foremost nature photographers: Craig Blacklock, Clyde Butcher, Robert Clements, Kevin Ebi, Robbie George, Stephen Gorman, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Scot Miller, David Muench, Marc Muench, and Mark Muse. This show has special historical meaning for the region because the Wilderness Act of 1964 was authored by Tionesta native Howard Zahniser.
Photographs will be for sale. Many of the photographers' books will be on display.
Included in this show are the winners of the Wilderness Photo Contest, Judy Cole Blank, Mark Hulings, and Piper VanOrd.
This special exhibition was conceived and produced in cooperation with Friends of Allegheny Wilderness, and has been generously supported by Community Foundation of Warren County, DeFrees Family Memorial Fund, Northwest Savings Bank and Crary Gallery member-supporters and volunteers. Thank you!
Catalogs for this show are available at the gallery free.
Here is a quick video of the exhibiting invited artists (not the contest winners, whose works all show up here.)
