If you live in Portland, Oregon, you may have seen one or more of these billboards featuring Art’s photos. Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge is produced in association with Oregon Public Broadcasting. As one fan wrote, “Kudos to OPB for going with a campaign that feels daring in its simplicity.” Let us know if you’ve seen any of them.
The G2 Gallery in Venice, California, rolled out the red carpet for Art this past weekend with a lovely catered event for his terrific new exhibit. It will run through August 1, 2010. And the show benefits the Natural Resources Defense Council
Special thanks for the event photos to Rich Reid / richreidphotography.com.
And last week’s Yellow-leaf mantis:
Special thanks to Burke board member Steve Whiston (www.fallenlog.com) for providing the photos
The gala opening of the International Conservation Photography Awards at Seattle’s Burke Museum On July 19th was a huge success. Well over 400 people attended and there were lines out the door. The Burke exceeded 1100 people over the course of the weekend.
The ICP Awards was founded in 1997 by Art Wolfe and the exhibit of more that 75 images, representing the best of conservation photography from around the world, will be on view through September 6th, 2010. If you can make it to Seattle it is a spectacular show and deserves to be seen in person! http://www.washington.edu/burkemuseum/. If you can’t, visit www.icpawards.com to view the Winners’ Galleries online. Congratulations to all the photographers!
