Clyde Butcher Exhibit Headed to Court House Cultural Center
By Jackie Holfelder
One of the country’s most honored photographers will be featured at the Court House Cultural Center from January 12-March 13 when Clyde Butcher’s America’s Everglades Exhibit is presented by the Arts Council of Martin County.
The rugged and remote beauty of the Everglades is captured in these works which span more than three decades of foraging into dense swampland.
This expansive wilderness collection represents the many years Butcher spent exploring the remote regions of the Everglades, experiencing its changes.
Shaped and sustained by seasonally flowing shallow water, the area is home to dozens of threatened and endangered species, massive flocks of wading birds, recovering populations of alligators, crocodiles, and millions of insects.
The Arts Council invited Butcher to exhibit as a tribute to its 30 years of showing art in the gallery and as a special tribute to Ansel Adams, who was featured in that first show.
So that guests can visit confidently, thorough safety precautions will be followed.
A maximum of 20 people will be allowed in the gallery at one time. Visitors, staff, and vendors must wear face coverings/masks while indoors. If you don’t have one with you, disposable face masks will be available.
A 6-foor distance from others must be maintained.
Hand sanitizer is available and frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned by staff throughout the day.
If anyone has a fever or any flu-like symptoms, or has been in close contact with anyone presumed or confirmed to have COVID-19 within the past two weeks, they are asked to not attend the exhibit.
An opening reception is planned. Details are still be worked out to ensure the safest possible experience for attendees and will be posted on www.martinarts.org as they become available.
Although there is no charge to attend this remarkable exhibition, a $5 per person contribution is suggested.
Clyde Butcher’s America’s Everglades Exhibit is the perfect way to kick off the 2021 arts season on the Treasure Coast.
The mission of the Arts Council is to inspire participation in and a passion for the arts in our community. It serves as the local arts agency in Martin County.
