YOSEMITE AT 150: A Photographic Celebration

Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant through the lenses of 13 Photographers

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS: Annette Bottaro-Walklet, Dan Burkholder, Charles Cramer, Jeffrey Conley, Karl Kroeber, Anne Larsen, Mike Osborne, John Sexton, Alan Ross, Scot Miller, Jill Skupin Burkholder, Keith S. Walklet & R.P. Washburne

In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, widely credited as the beginning of the national park idea, with photographs from Carleton Watkins fresh on his mind. Later, Ansel Adams’ famous images of Yosemite embellished and cemented Yosemite’s reputation as a photographer’s paradise. YOSEMITE AT 150: A Photographic Celebration brings together diverse perspectives and photographic processes and features fine prints by 13 contemporary Yosemite photographers, including Alan Ross & John Sexton, Ansel Adams’ last two Photographic Assistants, and the photographers responsible for First Light: Five Photographers Explore Yosemite’s Wilderness. In addition, the gallery is displaying “Yosemite Falls by moonlight, Yosemite Valley (California, 1986),” a print by the late photographer Galen Rowell.

Mike Tollefson, president of Yosemite Conservancy, will be our special guest at the Opening Reception on May 10.  Photographers Scot Miller and R.P. Washburne will also be in attendance.

This exhibition shows Yosemite in a scope and variety you will not find anywhere else! Come, and be inspired. Partial proceeds benefit Yosemite Conservancy.

Yosemite: A Gathering of Spirit is a documentary film created by Ken Burns & Dayton Duncan in cooperation with Yosemite Conservancy to honor the signing of the landmark federal act that preserved Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. We are excited to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Yosemite with this inspirational film and hope that Yosemite lovers far and wide will join us for this unique experience.

We will present two screenings a day at Sun to Moon Gallery Thursday/Friday/Saturday from May 15 – June 14.
