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.
