Clyde Butcher Lecture: St. Petersburg
May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Clyde Butcher’s America the Beautiful exhibit will be on display alongside Ansel Adams Masterworks exhibit at The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art from April 9 – July 31, 2022. This is an exciting opportunity to view the work of these two renowned landscape photographers side by side.
This collection celebrates the beauty of the American landscape from the Redwood forests of California to the Everglade swamps of Florida. Clyde majestically captures the public natural lands set aside by the Federal and State governments for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
Clyde’s images of these treasured landscapes document the changing environment, capturing what is there today and encouraging us to enjoy the beauty of nature. Clyde’s images speak for countless diverse places of wilderness and respite found throughout all of America, allowing us an appreciation of our land.
“Clyde represents what we hope all great artists of our country hold true in their work: the responsibility of communicating the goodness of our world through the arts. Moreover, he has used his photographs as learning tools to inspire others, sharing his concern for our limited resources and endangered habitats” –Jimmy Carter, Former President of the United
