Mystery - Rob Dutton

“I am drawn to photography by the allure of being able to capture and evoke visceral and magical feelings through imagery. The magical dance of light, shadow and color is such an amazing and inspiring dance to see, the aware and watchful eye can’t help but be drawn to it. It’s a tireless dance that happens every day waiting to entertain the watching heart in myriad and mystical ways, sometimes grand and obvious and sometimes almost hiding, subtle and shy. Photography for me is about reflecting the feeling a sight experience stimulates inside me. With every release of the shutter, I excitedly hope the result will be the feeling I wish to share…or your flavor of it.”

July Artist of the Month

July Artist of the Month – Judy Frosch, Photographer

Artist Reception – Friday July 11th from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

JUDY FROSCH - 1

Judy Frosch is a photographer lucky enough to have discovered the magical, continually changing abstract results of boat wakes plowing through a mirror-smooth lake surface reflecting whatever rock colors, shadows, plants, sky and clouds are nearby.

These reflections are not at all attainable during heavy boat usage or wind, so the majority of the patterns are captured during those rare windless days during the “off season.” Judy’s “Reflection” images will be on display at the Powell Museum for the month of July.

JUDY FROSCH - 2

Powell Museum - 6 North Lake Powell Blvd

Join us Friday, July 11th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. for an artist reception! The event is free to the public. Refreshments will be served.

May Glen Canyon Lecture Series

Glen Canyon Lecture Series PresentsPage and Lake Powell

Early Images of Page and Lake Powell” by Jane E. Ward

Thursday, May 15, 2014

The people who descended on the remote northern Arizona wilderness in the early 1950s to build Glen Canyon Dam and the town of Page were true pioneers. They arrived to find Glen Canyon a sandy, desolate hilltop with walls over 700 feet deep that had been part of the vast Navajo reservation, and an incredibly challenging way of life. The first blast necessary for site excavation at Glen Canyon Dam was triggered on October 15, 1957, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower pressed a key setting off the explosion from an office in Washington, DC. Almost 10 years later, construction was completed on the nation’s second-highest concrete dam, harnessing the waters of the Colorado River and forever changing the history of the local area and the West. Today, over three million annual visitors enjoy the diverse and awe-inspiring landscape surrounding Page and Lake Powell.

Author Jane E. Ward, a native of Page, has a master of the arts in history from Northern Arizona University with special interest in the history of Arizona and the Colorado Plateau. She is the Educational Services Coordinator at Coconino Community College and feels an intense kinship to the Page community, visitors to the area, and those who wish to learn more about the treasured cultural heritage of the region. Ward is active in many community charities and volunteers her time to raise funds for the Page Lake Powell Community Foundation and Coconino Community College Kids Camp, a summer educational program for children.

Thursday May 15th at 7:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) at Carl Hayden Visitor Center at Glen Canyon Dam.

A book signing will follow the lecture. Admission is free. The Glen Canyon Lecture Series is sponsored by Glen Canyon Natural History AssociationPowell Museum, and Page Public Library.
