Water Gives Life now on display at the National Eagle Center


Mon, Jan 12th, 2015
Posted in All Arts & Culture

Now through March, 2015 the photography of Larry Ricker is on display in the Watershed Gallery at the National Eagle Center. In this exhibit, “Water Gives Life”, Ricker explores the connections of many creatures through water.

Larry Ricker specializes in scenic wilderness photography. With regular trips to national parks across North America, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and throughout the Upper Mississippi River valley, Ricker’s photography highlights life in locations remote and close to home.

The public is invited to a reception on January 15, 4 p.m.-6 p.m. at the National Eagle Center to meet photographer Larry Ricker and hear about his work.

The Watershed Gallery at the National Eagle Center showcases the beauty and diversity of life in the Upper Mississippi River watershed through the work of regional artists. A watershed is an area from which all water drains into a particular stream, lake or river. The water connects all life in the watershed from the majestic eagle to the plants and animals that may go unnoticed. Each one has an important place in the web of life. Through the artist’s unique perspective visitors can appreciate the many species that share the watershed.

The National Eagle Center is a landmark interpretive center on the banks of the Mississippi River in Wabasha, Minn. Offering wild eagle viewing and live eagle programs daily, the National Eagle Center fosters environmental stewardship through education about eagles and the Mississippi River watershed. For more information about upcoming events at the National Eagle Center, visit www.nationaleaglecenter.org.
