Exhibition Opening and Reception, Missoula Art Museum
The Sierra Club is proud to sponsor this beautiful exhibition, which opens Friday October 7th and features over 130 original Ansel Adams gelatin silver prints.
The Sierra Club was vital to Adams's early success as a photographer. His first published photographs and writings appeared in the club's 1922 Bulletin, and he had his first one man exhibition in 1928 at the club's San Francisco headquarters. By 1934 Adams had been elected to the club's board of directors and was well established as both the artist of the Sierra Nevada and the defender of Yosemite. His photographs continue to inspire the artist and conservationist alike.
