Instance in Time, Rick McEwan and Adele Buttolph, Opening Reception

July 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Canceled Due to Covid 19 spread in Wallowa County for your protection we have decided to reschedule tonight’s opening reception new time and date to be announced at a later date. We are sorry for the inconvenience.


The Josephy Center for Arts and Culture is honored to present an exhibit, Instance in Time, featuring local photographers Rick McEwan and Adele Buttolph. The exhibit opens on Friday, July 30 with an opening reception starting at 7 p.m.: the reception includes an artists’ Q & A and an exhibit walk through. We will be serving food and drink and the art will be for sale. The exhibit ends September 10.

Rick McEwan approached the Josephy Center two years ago with an idea for this exhibit that focused on his style of photography, where he captures the beauty of an instance in time . Rick is a nature photographer, and in commenting about his creative process, he states, “I seek to communicate a sense of place through hours, days, sometimes years of personal experience in a location.”

As an artist, Rick endeavors “to see the familiar in new and intriguing ways, seeing patterns and connections across time, space and experience.” Rick also said, “We live in a world where we document through photography, our instances in time. To hold those photographs, is to hold the memories in our lives.”

The co-exhibitor is photographer Adele Buttolph from Enterprise. Adele states that “Nature, travel, and intentional camera movement techniques are truly inspiring for me as a photographer. My intent is to capture the essence of a place or an emotion, as I experience it.” Like Rick, Adele shares the idea that “each photograph preserves a unique portrayal of place and time.”

A catalog of the exhibit will be for sale, $15, and can be purchased online or in-person at the exhibit at the Josephy Center. A slide show of the exhibit will be on our website at josephy.org. This exhibit was supported by the Ford Family Visual Arts, Oregon Community Foundation, Ann Werner and your patronage.
