Thomas Mangelsen: A Life in the Wild – July 15 – September 6, 2020

Opening Artist’s Reception, Gallery Walk, & Book Signing with Mr. Mangelsen – Friday, July 24, 6-8pm

A LIFE IN THE WILD is an exhibition containing 40 of Mangelsen’s most resonant images—images that take viewers on a journey into the haunts of iconic species whose struggles for survival are metaphorical fulcrums for reflection in the 21st century.

Every single image in Mangelsen’s portfolio has been taken in the wild under natural conditions; the result of him waiting for the “picture perfect moment” across decades and often in hostile conditions.  Such a body of work can only be achieved by having a heightened sense of animal behavior, an uncanny feel for being able to read changing atmospherics in the environment, and patience.

At a time when digital technology is, notoriously, reprogramming its users to have shorter attention spans, A LIFE IN THE WILD stands as a testament to the rewards that can come to people who slow down their lives and wait for nature’s revelations to happen.

Renowned American nature photographer Thomas D. Mangelsen has traveled throughout the natural world for nearly 50 years observing and photographing the Earth’s last great wild places.  From polar bears in the Arctic to vast herds of game on the plains of Africa, from the deep jungles of South America to the tigers of India, to images revealing the diversity of wildlife in the American West, Mangelsen has captured rare moments and vast panoramas from all seven continents.

Mangelsen is a critically acclaimed photographer whose honors include being named “Conservation Photographer of the Year” by Nature’s Best Photography, the BBC’s “Wildlife Photographer of the Year”, the “Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year” by NANPA, one of the “100 Most Important People in Photography” by American Photo magazine and one of the “40 Most Influential Nature Photographers” by Outdoor Photography.  Most recently Mangelsen was featured on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper.

Mangelsen’s award winning limited edition prints have been exhibited in major museums including the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and collected by thousands around the world through his MANGELSEN – Images of Nature Gallery locations.  Visit Mangelsen.com to view the entire Mangelsen portfolio.

“African Extremes”, Bronze Kingfisher on Kori Bustard Feather, Stefan Savides

Savides’ life is about birds and art.  He has never worked a day in his life that he was not recreating birds in one form or another.  While taxidermy, which he has worked his way to the top of his profession internationally, has been his mainstay for most of his adult life, this multi-talented artist, from a young age, has painted, carved, mounted, and sculpted birds.  He has proven himself in a variety of mediums and venues.  Years of intense study coupled with a flair for simplistic design equates to renderings that capture the essence of his subjects in tasteful clean works of art.
