Opens Sunday, Aug. 14, at Kenan House Gallery in Lockport
The Kenan House Gallery presents “Into the Wild,” a collection of wildlife-focused fine art and photography from regional and national artists including Charles Brown, Dick Collins, Kateri Ewing, Judy Hartke, Dan Meyer, Len Rusin, Frederick Szatkowski and Jeff Tracy.
The opening reception will be held from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14. Peter Lotz with Skyhunters will be on site for the opening reception. He will bring a golden eagle and a variety of other birds to offer a raptor flying demo at 3 p.m. He will set up outside the Kenan House Gallery, and the birds will be on a perch for photo opportunities. The event is free and open to the public.
The show includes photography by Tracy who just returned to New York from a trip that brought him “into the wild.” Photographs from this trip will be included into the exhibition.
“I recently returned from a second trip to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and enjoy 3 ½ days of safari,” Tracy said. “The trip had been postponed due to COVID and was a long time in coming. The safari included time in Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater National Park and Tarangire National Park.”
“Into the Wild” will be on view Aug. 14 through Sept. 25 at the Kenan House Gallery in Lockport. Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 2-4 p.m. Sunday.
