North and South Galleries of the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art
Don't miss this exhibition of 35 black and white photographs that express the personal bond between photographer Clyde Butcher and Florida’s natural landscapes. This exhibition was produced by the South Florida Museum and made possible with assistance from Clyde Butcher Galleries.
Clyde Butcher has earned recognition as the foremost landscape photographer in the United States. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has described him as “a national treasure.” Butcher is a Florida resident best known for his large-format, black and white landscapes of Florida’s wilderness areas and his commitment to save Florida’s fragile environments through greater awareness. This exhibition, organized by the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, includes
35 photographs varying in size from 8 x 14 in. to 5 x 8 ft. accompanied by contextual panels and quotes. Interpretive panels on the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge and The Everglades, along with a first edition copy of The River of Grass by Marjory Stoneman Douglas, and two video components, including a documentary with Clyde Butcher and his wife Niki, enhance the visitor’s understanding of the conservation themes in the exhibition.
After the show we will visit a nearby restaurant in Tarpon Springs/Palm Harbor
