Peaceful Death Valley National Park

Gallery 54 will open Peaceful Valley – one man's visit to Death Valley National Park from 5 to 8 pm on Friday, May 5. The special show will run through the end of May.

“I was literally and figuratively blown away during my recent visit to Death Valley National Park,” says Tom Dwyer, a Gallery 54 photography artist. “I traveled to the famous park in Southern California, and just north and west of Las Vegas, NV for a photography class being conducted by noted photography artist Guy Tal. I had little real interest in the park itself,” Dwyer notes, “un til the 115 mile drive from Las Vegas to Stovepipe Wells Village in the park changed all that.”

He was blown away by the “parks grandeur, vastness, and peacefulness,” he says adding, “ I quickly felt challenged to try and capture as much of the 5,000 square mile park's character as I could in my brief visit.”

Dwyer's photography has been part Gallery 54 for almost five years. “It's a misnomer,” he says, “to suggest that I've been self taught, despite the fact that I don't have any formal education in photography. But, in reality we are all taught by those who have gone before us as well as others who are running the same race we are.” He says he's been fortunate to be able to learn from classes and workshops conducted by top nature photographers including luminaries like Guy Tal, George Lepp, and Margo Pinkerton.

“I think we also have to recognize the impact that photographs we see in magazines, in galleries like Gallery 54, at art shows and in the work of fellow photographers on our own efforts,” he says.

The Death Valley images that Dwyer will exhibit will all be available for purchase as custom giclee´ prints as well as to be custom framed.

Toro RunWinery from Ovid, NY is scheduled to conduct wine tastings during the show opening and light refreshments will be served.
