A second exhibition of the Owens Lake Project in 2015!
First, a HUGE thank you to those of you who donated to the GoFundMe fundraiser–most of my data was recovered, and the exhibit this summer at the G2 Gallery went on with no problems or delays. I could not have done this without your help, and I am both grateful and humbled. Those of you who donated at the level to receive a complimentary print from me can expect them within the next week (my techno-nightmares have continued, unfortunately–my PC desktop went belly-up about 10 days ago, which slightly delayed my ability to print those images; it’s been an interesting year, to say the least!).
For those of you who were unable to see the exhibit in Los Angeles, you’ll have another opportunity to view it this spring, when I take the project “home” to the Owens Valley. I’m very excited to announce that Friends of the Inyo, an excellent stewardship and conservation group in the Eastern Sierra, is sponsoring a two-month showing of the exhibit during March and April 2015 as part of their first annual Owens Lake Bird Festival. You can read more info on that here.
The exact opening and closing dates have not yet been determined, but the exhibit will run for approximately two months, with the closing reception set for April 25 in Lone Pine. The exhibit will be held at a venue I love and have spent many hours at–the Eastern Sierra Interagency Visitors Center, a beautiful facility just north of the Owens Lake. I’m SO excited about the second showing of the project, and especially excited about the location for the exhibit. When the opening/closing dates have been confirmed, I’ll update here with more information, and I hope to see some of you there.
There have been some interesting new developments with the LADWP’s obligations on dust control at the lake, but that deserves a post of its own. Once I’ve digested all the details, I’ll devote a new post to it in the next few days. Stay tuned!
Wonderful website! Thank you for all this infomation and beautiful pictures! You do great work!
I was looking at the pictures of Keeler you posted and they made me happy and sad at the same time as I was born in Keeler in 1956 the train was running the talc mill was booming there was a bar a school house where I went to school the firehouse and a lot of great people I remember fishing on the Owens River and all of us kids played on the lake but it had very little water but we had the pool we all went to there was a few mines around in operation and a few other business’s such as a store and a service station and LADWP kept sucking the valley dry for it’s water the creeks above Lone Pine are all but gone now it was once a beautiful place. So Sad what the people of southern Ca have done to my home town
Have A Nice Day
