Chronicles of Change

October 6, 2023 - November 16, 2023

A community exploration through art, science, and story-telling, of how Wallowa County and NE Oregon communities and landscapes are changing, from climate’s influence, to human and wild populations, to scenery, landscape and health… and what those changes mean to us.

EXHIBIT DATES: Oct. 6-Nov. 16

Dr. Ellen Morris Bishop

Judges: Leslie LeViner

Curator: Ellen Morris Bishop

As we become a more urban, urbane, and technologically-driven society, I thnk it is essential top re-establish our ties to landscape and place. I’ve tried to accomplish this through both images and words, as well as interpretive work. With a Ph.D. in geology, and specialization in the exotic terranes of the Northwest, it’s natural that Pacific Northwest landscapes–their geologic history and ecosystems–are my specialty. My photographs try to reveal the landscape’s changing forms through time., and human’s changing relationship with nature.  My images and interpretive work are used by the Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, National Park Service, Oregon State Parks, Contdon Museum, High Desert Museum and many others.
