Mark became interested in wild fungus during his college days in the damp forests of Northern California. Taking classes in mycology helped him on his mushroom hunting ways. What you will see in our September Artist of the Month Exhibit is but a small portion of perhaps 3,000 images of approximately 250 species that have fallen prey to the lens of Mark Law.

Mark can be reached at the Powell Museum where he is our Special Projects Coordinator and a very special honorary board member.
