Glenn Rudolph, November 13
Glenn Rudolph’s photographs tell the hidden stories of the Northwest landscape and those who call it home.  From the old Northern Pacific (Milwaukee Road) railroad line through the Cascades to weekend fantasy warriors in the Kent Valley, Rudolf explores the region’s outer fringe through the lens of his large-format camera.  Rudolph lives in Roslyn, Washington.

The work of Mary Randlett | December 4
Join us for a public lecture on the work of legendary Northwest photographer Mary Randlett (b. 1924). Randlett’s work is in more than forty permanent collections nationally including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington and numerous others. She has documented a comprehensive visual documentation of the Northwest art scene in the second half of the twentieth century. Don Ellegood, former director of the University of Washington Press, with whom she produced a number of books, calls her “beyond question the leading photographer in the Northwest.” Her most recent book, Mary Randlett Landscapes, was published by University of Washington Press in 2007 and includes Island Waves; it was released to coincide with a solo exhibition at Tacoma Art Museum.
