A Holiday FUNdraiser, Shopping, and Outreach Spetacular
Holiday FUNdraiser — Contemplative Photography
Sunday, December 11th, 5 – 8 PM
Nature photography can be deeply soul-soothing and meditative. It can be educational as it gives details about the appearance or behavior of a bird, and it can result in the protection of birds and landscapes. William Finley was a conservation photographer who presented to Teddy Roosevelt photos showing the mass slaughter of herons and egrets, prompting Roosevelt to set aside land as refuges for birds.
This presentation celebrates the power of photography. Kirk Gooding selected his favorite nature photos and created this inspirational series set to music. After a brief introduction, we ask you to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds created in this stunning presentation.
This holiday event will be held in a home in Ashland. Appetizers and beverages will be provided. Suggested $100 Donation.
