Sally Foti is the Museum’s Artist of the Month for May.

Native Californian, gone ‘crazy’ for Glen Canyon, Sally Foti has been visiting and painting the Page-Lake Powell area since 1985. She now lives in Greenehaven, Arizona, and spends much of her time hiking canyon country surrounding the Page-Lake Powell area and painting. Recently, Sally has been working on paintings using a unique style of pointalism. The new series of her “dot” paintings will be on display, and available for sale, for her Artist of the Month show in May.

“Since my first visit here I knew I had found my favorite place on Earth. I returned, year after year, exploring, taking photographs and drawing the scenery, taking in as much as I could. It was never enough. So, when I had the chance to live here, I grabbed it. Although I have only lived in the area a short time, I have a natural sense of belonging, it is my dream, my home. The beauty of the area, with its color, texture, culture and history are a never ending inspiration for my art.”

Join us for an artist reception and exhibit opening on Friday May 4th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Powell Museum. The event is free to the public and refreshments will be served.

Hope to see you there!

April Glen Canyon Lecture Series

Glen Canyon Lecture Series presents:

“My Canyonlands: The Adventurous Life of Kent Frost,” a film presented by Chris Simon of Sageland Media.

Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 7:00 p.m. at the Carl Hayden Visitor Center at Glen Canyon Dam

My Canyonlands” (54 minutes) is based on interviews with Utah canyon country explorer Kent Frost. Kent Frost, now 93, disappeared as a boy into the Utah’s unmapped canyons and came back a changed man. Born and raised in the canyon country of Utah, Kent Frost began wandering it on his own by the age of 13. In an era when most Monticello folks found plenty of wild country on their own ranches, young Kent explored the surrounding deep canyons and floated the San Juan, Green, and Colorado Rivers on home-made rafts. Later, he pioneered the tourist industry becoming a commercial boatman and owning a jeep tour company. His knowledge and lobbying efforts helped create Canyonlands National Park. Along the way, he has inspired thousands of people to love and preserve the land.

Admission is free. The Glen Canyon Lecture Series is sponsored by Glen Canyon Natural History Association, Powell Museum, and Page Public Library.

March Glen Canyon Lecture Series

“What Has Passed and What Remains: Oral Histories of Northern Arizona’s Changing Landscapes”  presented by Peter Friederici

Wednesday, March 21, 2012, 7:00 pm at the Carl Hayden Visitor Center at Glen Canyon Dam

The land is awash in stories: though unseen, they are still potent.  All over northern Arizona, experiences of place have shaped people and land.  We remember those experiences with stories.  They are stories about the weather and the neighbors, about animals and plants, about work and play, about time-honored traditions and hard times.  We tell them around campfires and kitchen tables, on long drives and in public hearings.  Ultimately they are stories about us, for who we are is ultimately inseparable from where we live.  It is to capture these stories for the future that the Ecological Oral Histories project has been recording narratives of long-time observers of life in northern Arizona.

Since 2005 “What Has Passed and What Remains” has recorded dozens of digital video interviews with people from all over northern Arizona.  Most of the interviews have been conducted by students from numerous disciplines, including history, English, anthropology, environmental studies, sustainability studies, and more.  The interviews are professionally transcribed, and video and print versions are archived at the Colorado Plateau Digital Archives at Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library.  The project has also worked to make parts of the interviews available through a book, publications in popular media, and a multimedia exhibit at the Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff..

Peter Friederici is an award-winning freelance journalist who writes about science, nature, and the environment from his home in Arizona.  His articles, essays, and books tell stories of people, places, and the links between them.

Admission is free.  The Glen Canyon lecture Series is sponsored by Glen Canyon Natural History Association, Powell Museum, and Page Public Library.
