Not many vistas are as powerful as Jackson Hole’s Teton Range. Only the Grand Canyon outranks our mountains. The art of capturing that great national park is touched upon in the Teton County Library’s April exhibition, Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography, on view in the library’s gallery April 16-July 16.
A Smithsonian traveling exhibition, the color photo collection reminds us of the Canyon’s siren call to photographers. See the Grand Canyon as some of our best photographers have experienced it, absorbing its grandeur and its intimacies. Images take in miles of canyon rim, waterfalls, lupin and pine needles, and every kind of light and shadow. The canyon is a landscape; it is an abstract composition blending nature’s perfect forms. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the Grand Canyon Association. It is sponsored locally by Teton County Library Foundation. Cost: Free. Location: Library’s Exhibition Gallery. Contact: Adult Humanities Coordinator, 733-2164 ext. 135.
