National Wilderness Conference

The other recent event celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Wilderness Act I participated in was National Wilderness Conference in Albuquerque, NM. Organized by all of the collective federal agencies that manage wilderness lands, this was a multi-day event featuring numerous presentations and distinguished speakers such as Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, author Terry Tempest Williams, and Senator Tom Udall. I was asked to be an "inspirational" closing keynote speaker, along with my old friend, Dave Foreman, author of Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching, and co-founder of Earth First!, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance and  most recently, the Rewilding Institute

Here is a fun photograph of two old eco-warriors having a great time.

If you could stand to hear my speech without the accompaniment of images, here is a link to that:

 
Finally, as I look forward into the coming year, I want you to know that I currently have work in exhibitions at the New Mexico Museum of Art and at HS Kunst Galerie in Heidelberg, Germany. I am most excited, however, to be showing completely NEW imagery at The G2 Gallery in Venice, CA. "Mandalac Gardens" will be on display from August 11 - September 27, 2015.

Here are two "teasers" from that show - each is 40" across. The dyes are embedded in aluminum using heat and pressure and then the external shape is cutout by a laser router. Please come and see these amazing pieces in person as scale changes them dramatically, they have SO much detail!
