||This exhibition features four large-scale works each by many of the nation's foremost nature photographers: Craig Blacklock, Clyde Butcher, Robert Clements, Kevin Ebi, Robbie George, Stephen Gorman, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Scot Miller, David Muench, Marc Muench, and Mark Muse. This show has special historical meaning for the region, because the Wilderness Act of 1964 was authored by Tionesta native Howard Zahniser.
Included in this show are the winners of the Wilderness Photo Contest, Piper VanOrd, Mark Hulings, and Judy Cole Blank.
This special exhibition was conceived and produced in conjunction with Friends of Allegheny Wilderness in Warren, and has been generously supported by Community Foundation of Warren County, DeFrees Family Memorial Fund, Northwest Savings Bank and Crary Gallery member-supporters and volunteers.
