Year In Review


2012 Year in Review – Images by Art Wolfe

2012 was fraught with change and endeavor, sturm und drang. Now is the time to try to remember it all and thank everyone for their support and interest over the last year.

In January we started moving to our new location in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. As everyone knows, moves take longer and cost more than one can ever plan! Needless to say, we love our new location and are happy to be more a part of the art community. It has been great being a part of the popular First Thursday Art Walk.

At nearly the same time, The Natural Wonders Gallery opened in Las Vegas. This stunning gallery, featuring the work of Art Wolfe, Robert Rotella, and Robert Park, is located in The Shoppes at the Palazzo.
As always Art was on the road for a good part of year, photographing for various projects and leading photography tours and seminars. Destinations included Australia; South Africa, Tanzania and Rwanda; Brazil’s Pantanal; Ireland, France, Italy, and Croatia; and many locations stateside, such as Alaska’s Lake Clark, the Carolinas, Utah, Washington, California, Pennsylvania, and Oregon; as well as a brief foray into Canada. Art also collaborated with legendary nature photographers Frans Lanting and Tom Mangelsen for a Masters of Nature Photography seminar.

On the fine art print and publishing front, we launched the Human Canvas, Art’s masterwork of painting, the human figure, and photography. This is both a limited edition print collection and book. www.humancanvasproject.com

Europe was good to Art as well; Germany’s Frederking & Thaler published Animal Art and Landschaften Zwischen Himmel und Erde. WWF Netherlands published Wereldnatuur (Art’s first book in Dutch!) and used it as a donation premium in celebration of their fiftieth year anniversary of saving wildlife around the world.

It is always an honor to receive accolades. The University of Washington, Art’s Alma Mater, honored him with a Timeless Award based on outstanding service and achievement since graduation. Landschaften Zwischen Himmel und Erde was named the Most Beautiful Science Book by Bild der Wissenschaft.

Giving accolades in return is gratifying: The 2012 renewal of the International Conservation Photography Awards came off without a hitch. Art founded this invitational in 1997 and it has spun off into its own orbit with the incredible support of the Burke Museum of History and Culture. www.icpawards.com

2013 already shows much promise as yet another memorable year for Art Wolfe, Inc. Stay tuned!
