Art In The Library
Images of Central Oregon
If you enjoy images of Central Oregon, from the Metolius to the McKenzie River, the Painted Hills to our own Black Butte Ranch, come to the Sisters Library Community to see the amazing photographs of Curtiss Abbott.
Curtiss Abbott’s interest in photography began with film and darkroom development and grew into the digital age. His images show his fine eye for composition and beauty in subjects that we ‘see’ every day. He has been photographing Central Oregon’s dramatic scenes and interesting subjects since 1985. Many of his images are taken at Black Butte Ranch, OR. His work is frequently displayed at local photography exhibits.
Endangered Birds of North America
by Douglas Beall
If you love birds and care passionately about endangered species, you don’t want to miss this beautiful exposition of photographs by Douglas Beall of Camp Sherman.
“Many birds are in desperate need of protection as their habitat shrinks to mere scattered acres within close proximity of intense human development,” Beall said. “Global warming is looming as a severe test to management of wildlife resources, water levels and fossil fuels.”
