There will be a free reception to showcase the work on Saturday May 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. during Third Saturday Art Walk.
When California announced that 70 state parks would close July 2012, D’Mot decided to visit and blog about all 70. Her blog and photos were featured in the Associated Press, on NPR, newspapers and numerous outdoor magazines.
“Picnic at the State Parks” photo show is a result of D’Mot and McKinney’s 70 day trips to all of the parks on the chopping block.
The photos and art display the great diversity of California, including deserts, oceans, mountains, forests, marshes and historic sites, and dozens of pictures of wildflowers, plants and animal friends.
