JESSE BURKE: WILD & PRECIOUS
OCTOBER 15 – NOVEMBER 14, 2015

OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2015, 6-8PM

For five years, Burke and his daughter team traveled to locations throughout their native New England, as well as to the Rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, the Southwestern Sonoran Desert, and the beaches of North Carolina and Florida. They studied the trees, the land, the sky, and the animals they encountered during their hikes through woods and meadows, climbs up hills and mountains, and treks along rugged shorelines and rivers. They documented the routes they drove, the landscapes they discovered, and the creatures they met along the way — from elks to eagles to raccoons. They even charted the quirky roadside motels they slept in when not camping outdoors. In each location, they collected artifacts that they would bring back home to catalog, study, and photograph.
