Fragile Waters

Fragile-Waters-header

Coming up next weekend, Fragile Waters calls attention to water, our most critical resource, presenting iconic work of three renowned photographers and lifelong environmentalists: Ansel Adams, Ernest H. Brooks II, and Dorothy Kerper Monnelly. The 117 black-and-white photographs present a powerful collective statement. These artists communicate the beauty and vitality of water. The exhibition was curated by Jeanne Falk Adams, former CEO of the Ansel Adams Gallery, and daughter-in-law of Ansel.
