Viewpoint Environmental Art Fair
Viewpoint Gallery is joining with nonprofit nature conservation and educational groups to host the Viewpoint Environmental Art Fair for the opening of Robert Glenn Ketchum's November exhibit, co-sponsored by KVIE public television.
There will be live music, a silent auction, and booths by our nonprofit partners in the adjacent courtyard (details below). Viewpoint Gallery will also launch new membership options with fine art images by Lewis Kemper, Roman Loranc, and John Wimberley, and silk scarves featuring photographic designs by Robert Glenn Ketchum. Silent auction items will include fine art prints, guided raft trips, canoe tours, coffee table books, dinner vouchers, and more.

On Thursday evening, Robert Glenn Ketchum will present a public lecture titled "Ketchum: In Defense of the Wild" at 7 p.m. at Sacramento State University in the University Union's Hinde Auditorium. The lecture is co-hosted by the CSUS Design Department and Viewpoint Gallery.
