Author Talk with Robbie Kaye - June 24


Sunday, June 24th, 3 pm – 4 pm

On Sunday, June 24th Robbie Kaye was at the Wildling Museum to present her second monograph, Endurance, that features photographs of 3 trees taken over the course of 3 years in the Santa Ynez Valley. Combined with prose, this book tells the story of Solitude, Magic, and Majesty, names that Robbie has attributed to these trees. They have endured fire, floods, and drought and remain strong in stature, not unlike the human experience. The foreword is written by Deborah Lee Davis who is an author, artist, healer and longtime resident of the Santa Ynez Valley.

“I would like to live as the trees do…in confidence, faith and fearlessness. They possess a constancy that I admire and can only hope to emulate in my time here.”

- Quote from Endurance
