Opening Reception for “The Changing Nature of Dallas” photography exhibition

Focusing on the Great Trinity Forest, the Trinity River & the evolving urban landscape of Dallas

Featuring fine photographic prints by Dan Burkholder, Scot Miller, Jill Skupin Burkholder & R.P. Washburne

Beautiful, lush wildflowers as far as the eyes can see. The sights and sounds of wild birds. Trails winding through the forest and along the river. A signature bridge and evolving skyline. Change is in the air! Sure, the Great Trinity Forest and Trinity River have been around forever, but it’s just recently that we’ve begun to understand and appreciate the long-term potential of our 6,000+ acre forest and the river that runs through it. We are embracing nature in Dallas as never before and the urban landscape is looking better, too. This exhibition is a celebration of change.

Sun to Moon Gallery, located in the Dallas Design District next to the Trinity River, and four photographers have joined creative forces to present an exhibition of photographs taken in and around the Great Trinity Forest and the Trinity River. The changing architecture and evolving urban landscape are also featured in The Changing Nature of Dallas, opening July 17 at the gallery. In addition to presenting their individual artistic expressions, photographers Dan Burkholder, Scot Miller, Jill Skupin Burkholder and R.P. Washburne have a common goal of helping to create an awareness and better understanding of the valuable natural assets we have in the Great Trinity Forest and the Trinity River.

From vivid digitally captured images, to stunning nature and architectural studies with film and a medium format camera, to hand-crafted bromoil prints overlaid with digitally applied color pigments, to jewel-like platinum/palladium over 24k gold leaf prints; the wide range of subject matter and artistic expression serve to illustrate differing artistic views of Great Trinity Forest, the Trinity River and the evolving urban landscape of Dallas. According to gallery director Marilyn Miller, “This exhibition features some stunning images and the amazing thing is that every single one was taken within fifteen minutes of the gallery. This will be an eye-opening exhibition for many people.”

Partial proceeds from print sales will benefit Groundwork Dallas (www.GroundworkDallas.org), a local nonprofit dedicated to promoting environmental, economic and social well-being in the Great Trinity Forest, the Trinity River watershed and the surrounding neighborhoods. The Changing Nature of Dallas is a wonderful combination of art and stewardship highlighting some of the natural treasures of Dallas and putting a spotlight on the evolving urban landscape. Sun to Moon Gallery is pleased to be a part of it.

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, July 19, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
