Art Exhibit: Al Dodson Photography
Northwest native and trained botanist Al Dodson is intimately familiar with plants of all kinds. He loves photographing their more subtle and elusive qualities and bringing them to light so that the more casual observer might appreciate them. Bark, for example, can have beautiful color, texture, and pattern that often goes unnoticed.
Come view Al's photos in the Library January 2 through February 11th.
