Endangered Culture: The Galisteo Basin as Seen by 28 Photographers

Artists Reception: Friday, January 23, 2009, 5 — 7 PM Exhibition Dates: January 23, 2009 — March 7, 2009 Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10am — 5pm

photo-eye Gallery, 376 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico, is pleased to announce The Galisteo Basin Photography Project, a benefit exhibition by renowned fine-art and documentary New Mexico photographers.

The Mission of the Project is to raise public awareness of what may be irretrievably lost if the Galisteo Basin—a unique area defined by the meandering 55 mile long Galisteo River, born in the Pecos wilderness and completing its westward journey as it merges into the Rio Grande River on the tribal lands of Santo Domingo Pueblo—is allowed to become an oil and gas production field.

Due to the growing awareness and outcry of residents, linked by a strong grassroots movement, both the State of New Mexico, under the leadership of Governor Bill Richardson, and the County Commissioners of Santa Fe, halted further exploration and development for oil and natural gas in early 2008 by placing Santa Fe County under the protection of moratoria. The Galisteo Basin is recognized as a New Mexico treasure: A benchmark of fragile beauty, vast historic and archaeological resources, and the traditional lifestyles of Northern New Mexico.

The exhibition is curated by Rixon Reed, Director of photo-eye, and Mary Anne Redding, Curator of Photography at the Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum. Fifty percent of monies raised from the sale of Individual prints and Special Boxed Set Editions of selected Exhibition photographs, as well as twenty-five percent from the sale of the framed prints, will be donated to the following non-profit organizations: Drilling Santa Fe, New Mexico Environmental Law Center, and the Oil & Gas Accountability Project.

In addition to the Photo-eye Gallery Exhibition, the online gallery www.GalisteoBasinPhotoProject.com also debuts on January 23, 2009, and features the work of eleven other photographers as well as the work of the Exhibition photographers.

The Exhibition Photographers: Tony Bonanno, Esha Chiocchio, Steve Fitch, Joan Gentry, Siegfried Halus, James Hart, Richard Khanlian, Don Kirby, Jack Kotz, Greg Mac Gregor, Douglas Magnus, Norman Mauskopf, Walter Nelson, Peter Ogilvie, Edward Ranney, Jennifer Schlesinger, Robert Shlaer, Linda Spier, Martin Stupich, Nancy Sutor, Susan Hayre Thelwell, Laurie Tumer, Garret Vreeland, Dana Waldon, Baron Wolman, and Zoe Zimmerman.

Mary Ellen Mark: Ward 81
from Richard Gordon

Almost a year ago today, I was asked to contribute a few thoughts for a forthcoming—now passed—exhibit of "vintage" prints from the original edition of Mary Ellen Mark's Ward 81 at the John McWhinnie Gallery at Glenn Horowitz Books. The thoughts further down the page come mostly from that invitation to recall this work of thirty years ago....
