Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs features a juried selection of approximately 60 photographs made within the American River Parkway, exploring its landscapes and riverscapes, its varied wildlife, and the many ways people use and enjoy this “jewel of the Sacramento region”.

Considered the blueprint for urban parks across the U.S., the 4900-acre American River Parkway extends along the Lower American River for 23 miles, from Folsom Dam to Discovery Park at the confluence with the Sacramento River. Combining conservation with scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and a wide range of recreational opportunities, the Parkway hosts more than 5 million visitors annually.

In conjunction with the exhibit at Viewpoint, the Viewpoint website features an online gallery of all images submitted for jurying. This online exhibit recognizes the many worthy photographs that could not be included in the print exhibit, and presents an even broader picture of this special place of ours, the American River Parkway.

Charlotte Gibb: Mother Earth

Exhibit Dates: 
Tuesday, Sep. 5 to Saturday, Oct. 7
Artist Reception (Member Event): 
Friday, Sep. 8 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
2nd Saturday Opening (General Public): 
Saturday, Sep. 9 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm

 

Mother Earth is a photographic exploration of the natural world through a woman’s eyes. This exhibit is Charlotte Gibb’s latest collection of photographs that celebrate the delicate and ephemeral nature of Mother Earth — her rages, her quiet contemplation, her dignified poses.

Inspired by the constant change of nature, these images depict heartbreakingly beautiful moments, both fleeting and powerful—giant pines weathering a raging snow storm which momentarily reveals a massive wall of granite; ghostly white Aspen trees in the final throes of Autumn; reflections in still water that play tricks on the mind.

Charlotte writes, “This body of work is meant to convey my deep emotional connection to Mother Nature, and to invite the viewer to listen in on my intimate, woman-to-woman, visual conversation with her.”
