Celebrate America’s National Parks and get into the 4th of July spirit with the opening reception ofEnchanted Parks: A Photographic Tale of Life in Our National Parks, by local photographer Leslie Bucklin.
A gallery walk-through with the artist is included in the reception set for 5-7 p.m., Tuesday July 3 at Mesa Public Library. The show runs through Aug. 6.
“Enchanted Parks” is a 100-plus piece photography show featuring the Los Alamos Historic District, Bandelier National Monument, and the Valles Caldera National Preserve, as well as several of our nation’s most beloved National Parks, including Glacier/Waterton International Peace Park, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Arches, White Sands and more.
“My passion behind showing my photos,” Bucklin said, “is so I can somehow share my emotions, memories, hopes and dreams that are stirred by looking at them.”
Enchanted Parks: A Photographic Tale of Life in Our National Parks, is a New Mexico Centenial Event.
As the Historic District prepares for the possibility of becoming part of the nation’s first non-contiguous National Park, there is an opportunity to look at not only what makes current National Parks so extraordinary, but what has always made North Central New Mexico extraordinary.
