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.

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.

For more information about this Exhibition or to arrange an interview with an artist, please contact Heather Prichard by phone at 505.988.5159 x116 or by email at gallery@photoeye.com.

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.
 Photographer's Showcase
Jason DeMarte's portfolio Utopic

"Utopic investigates how the artificial nature of our modern day interpretation of the natural world compares to the way we approach our immediate consumer world. I am interested in modes of representing the natural world through events and objects that have been fabricated or taken out of context. This unnatural experience of the so-called "natural" world is reflected in the way we, as modern consumers, ingest products. What becomes clear is that the closer we come to mimicking the natural world, the further away we separate ourselves from it."—Jason DeMarte
