Click: Western Focus

Practical photography was commercially introduced in 1839, but it was a cumbersome process requiring loads of equipment and lots of time. The tools and chemicals necessary to create photographic images were also bulky and caustic and had to be hauled through some of the most  unforgiving environments in the country to create the first portraits and landscapes of the American West.

From Edward Curtis to Ansel Adams, these extremely dedicated photographers of the past documented and paid tribute to the West through their amazing photos. And from October 8th, 2022, to March 5th, 2023, we will proudly present the images of their modern day counterparts in Click: Western Focus, a very special invitational exhibition and sale featuring photography from 17 of America’s most outstanding fine art photographers of the West. 

A special Friday night Opening Reception and Member Preview for this exhibit is scheduled on Friday, October 7th at 5:30PM, with Museum Members admitted free of charge and Guests for $20 each. 

Hope we will see you at the Museum!
