Internationally-renowned for his powerful images of the world’s most stunning yet threatened natural landscapes, Clyde Butcher has spent the past 50 years of his life sharing his love for the natural environment and his relentless passion for preserving it. The exquisite beauty and depth of his work draw the viewer into a relationship with nature.
The exhibition will be on view through October 30th. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11am-6pm., or by appointment.
