Motherstone - Exploring one of Earth's Most Profound Landscapes
Between the ancient volcanic cores and rainforests of the Coast Range and the Caribou Mountains lies a land largely unchanged since it flowed out of the deep Earth. This is the Motherstone. Many of the mountain peaks are unnamed, it is the land where salmon come home and where volcanoes lie. Photojournalist Chris Harris will present his photographs from his book The Motherstone and will be discussing this fascinating part of our country. The book will be available for sale. This presentation is co-sponsored by The White Wall North Gallery.
Public $25 / Members $20
