Nature Regenerated

On Display from August 13th - November 5th, 2018

The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature is delighted to announce the winners of our 10th annual photo competition. Winning first place, for the adult category, is “Out of the Ashes” by Judy Villa. Second place goes to “8 Legged Snowy Plover” by Elliot Lowndes, and in third is “Comeback” by Robert Houchens.  Ali Stein’s “Purple Crown” won first prize in the junior category, Quinn Stacey won second for “Out of the Ashes”, and George Miller won 3rd for “Land of Fairies”. This exhibit, in the Oak Gallery, combines junior photographers, Georgia Miller, Quinn Stacy, Ali Stein, with the adult entries of Robert Bassler, Kimberly Fly, Robert Houchens, Karen Jowers, Elliot Lowndes, Bruce C. Straits, and Judy Villa. The photographs were for sale, and prices started at $50. Proceeds from sales benefited the artists and the Wildling.

This year’s guest judge was Bill Dewey, known for his aerial photography. Photographers were encouraged to capture examples of nature’s magical ability to regenerate and thrive. All the images from both the adult and junior categories were exhibited together, on the second floor, in our Valley Oak Gallery from August 4th 2018 through November 5th 2018.
