Carengie Museum of Natural History
Pittsburgh, PA, USA United States of America

Three Western Pennsylvania nature photographers, who enjoy national and international acclaim, will speak about their work at The Art of Nature Photography symposium sponsored by Carnegie Museum of Natural History. The symposium will take place on Saturday, February 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater. The symposium costs $8 for Carnegie Members and students and $10 for nonmembers. The fee includes admission to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History that day and the traveling photographic exhibit, No Ordinary Land: Encounters in a Changing Environment.

The speakers are: Anthony E. Cook. Cook is a naturalist, artist and author of The Cook Forest, An Island in Time. He has attained international recognition in the world of nature photography through his work in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Outdoor Photographer, USAir Magazine and Sierra Magazine.

Dick Petrie. Petrie, of Natures Images, shares his passion and lifetime love affair with nature by chronicling his trips across America. On his journeys, he has photographed many animals, including spotted owls in the Allegheny National Forest and gray wolves and bald eagles in Colorado.

Donald Robinson. Robinson has been awarded the EFIAP (Artist of Excellence) by the Federation Internationale De L Art Photographue, will present his exhibition, Pole to Pole, a Photographic Expose of the Arctic and Antarctic.

No Ordinary Land: Encounters in a Changing Environment features 55 color photographs that explore the way people interact with the landscapes in which they live. Through the photography of Virginia Beahan and Laura McPhee, No Ordinary Land creates a powerful visual map of the ways the natural world shapes - and is reshaped by - human behavior. Photographing in locations as culturally diverse as Sri Lanka and Iceland, Costa Rica and New York, they have captured enduring moments where history, geology and myth coalesce. The exhibit will run through February 27, 2000.
