The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to present its first major of 2021, America the Beautiful: the Monumental Landscapes of Clyde Butcher. Visit the exhibition to travel through the most pristine landscapes in the United States through Butcher’s monumental photographs, from the Redwood forests of California to the Everglades swamps of Florida.
Clyde Butcher is a nationally acclaimed landscape photographer whose work documents pristine and untarnished lands across the United States. Deeply committed to his artistic process, Butcher carries large-format camera gear that can weigh up to 120 pounds as he crosses difficult terrain and stands in chest-deep water for hours. Aware of wildlife that make these territories home, Butcher goes above and beyond to deliver the perfect photograph. Butcher promotes environmental conservation through his work, and throughout his career has completed six Public Broadcasting programs on Florida’s environment, three of them award winning documentaries.
This exhibition is brought to you by Trulieve, presented by Florida State University College of Medicine and May Nursery, and sponsored by Russell Rainey DMD, and Talquin Electric.
