An exhibit by Photographer Bob Maynard will open at Edge of the Cedars Museum. The exhibit will be on display through April 2017.
Opening Reception of a unique photographic exhibit – Ancient Skies Through Ancient Eyes. Have you ever looked at the night sky and been transported to a timeless world, knowing that people through the ages have gazed in awe at the same pin-pricks of light we see in the midnight sky?
Bob Maynard spent three years capturing visions of the night skies in the Desert Southwest. Bob’s work evokes a sense of what it must have felt like to live among the dwellings and view the rock art as the Ancient Ones experienced them. He brings to light fascinating solstice and equinox rock art calendars. Most of the thirty pieces that make up this exhibit were produced using a sublimation printing technique to create the illusion of back-lighting. The resulting images are stunning.
Bob will be joined by ceramic replication potter Cherylene Caver. Cherylene crafts stunning recreations of pieces from the museum’s collection. She works in the most authentic manner, sourcing local clays and minerals, and using ancient construction practices, firing in an outdoor, in-ground prehistoric kiln.
Evocative music for the event will be provided by native-style flutist Earl Correy playing on Woodland Style wood flutes and replicas of ancient Puebloan end blown flutes.
