Rescheduled David Paul Bayles Lecture
Please join this Saturday, April 25, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. for a rescheduled, free lecture by David Paul Bayles, our featured artist in the gallery this month, showing photographs from his Falling Trees series. From his early days as a logger in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to his present home on Dreaming Forest Farm outside Corvallis, David Paul Bayles has lived and worked from, with and in the trees. His embrace of the paradox we all live—trees as resource and trees as sentient beings—has provided a singular focus and fertile ground for his photography for over 25 years. His stories about his journey from logger to committed environmentalist are fascinating and heartening.
