For over ten years a large portion of Gary Faye's work has focused on the Salton Sea. It stems from a fascination with this wilderness area, a bird sanctuary, that exists so close to the large urban centers of Southern California. Just two hours from both Los Angeles and San Diego, the Salton Sea is a large quiet lake, about 15 miles wide by 35 miles long, that provides support to over four hundred species of birds; notably one third of the American White Pelicans. In addition, the light reflecting from the desert surrounding the lake creates incredible skies above the entire Coachella Valley.
The photos in this exhibition are large images, 50 inches wide, that offer great detail of the Salton Sea.
Opening Reception Saturday, April 1, 5-8 p.m.
Exhibition through Saturday, May 6, 2017.
