Fourth Annual Art in Nature Photo Festival
Photography enthusiasts are invited to show their creative side at the fourth annual Art in Nature Photo Festival, August 8-10 at the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury University. Participants may compete in the photo competition in either the professional, amateur or youth divisions and may enter their photographs in any of five categories: • Birds • Plants and animals other than birds • Landscape/scenery • Black and white • Macro photography Photographers compete not only for bragging rights, but also for their chance at top prizes, which includes cash, software supplied by Adobe Systems and photo accessories supplied by Wimberley. The competition is only a small part of a weekend loaded with photography-related activities. Sponsored by Wicomico County Tourism, the festival begins Friday evening with keynote speaker and internationally renowned landscape photographer and environmentalist Clyde Butcher. To the appreciating eye, Butcher’s dramatic black and white photographs that embody nature, the environment, and iconic landmarks are magical. For more than forty years, Butcher has been preserving on film the untouched areas of natures’ landscape. Through his large format photography, he is able to express with elaborate detail and texture, the distinguished intricacy of each landscape. His photographs explore his personal relationship with the environment and the exquisite beauty and depth of his work will draw the viewer into that relationship with nature. Among Butcher’s many awards are Florida’s Artist Hall of Fame Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Nature Photography Association, and The Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Conservation Award. Keynote attendees will be entranced by Butcher’s story of what catches his eye, his planning and timing, as well as the logistics—including which large-format camera to use—for capturing the essence of nature or a particular location. But that’s just the beginning; from spending hours waiting for just the right light to capture hundreds of photographs, choosing the negative, working in the darkroom and the daunting process of developing the negative so it eventually emerges into the stunning image that embodies the spirit of its subject. On Saturday and Sunday, the museum’s lobby turns into a Photography Marketplace, where visitors have the opportunity to shop for fine art photography in addition to other photo products. Lectures, demonstrations, seminars and workshops are offered throughout the weekend, as well. These learning opportunities are suited for photographers of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, and touch on a wide range of topics, including: • Abstracts, seeking the unusual in the usual: Join multi award winning photographer, Mike Cable, as he offers a new way of looking at the marvelous details photographers encounter in everyday life. Cable’s carefully composed shots feature common objects reframed and revisited. • Birds of Prey Photo Shoot with Bill Wallen: This field session offers a rare opportunity for hands-on experience and instruction, while photographing several bird of prey species in their natural setting. • Focusing on the Hummingbird in your Backyard: This workshop is geared toward the amateur photographer who is interested in learning techniques and secrets for producing quality hummingbird photos, such as creating hummingbird habitat, and properly staging equipment. For a complete listing of activities, hotel packages, competition rules and prizes visit the Ward Museum web site at or call 410-742-4988, ext. 120.

Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs to offer 21 special events during September 2014
The Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs will be sponsoring 21 special events during the month of September 2014 at the museums of the state of Delaware. Six of the events will explore the First State’s rich Native-American heritage and culture. A schedule of all 21 special programs is listed at . For additional information, call 302-744-5055. According to Nena Todd, site supervisor for the state’s downtown Dover museums, September is a time for Native-American people to return to their homelands. Traditionally, the coming of cooler weather provided a signal for native peoples to transition from their summer hunting and fishing grounds to more secure winter lodging. This tradition of seasonal travel continues in today’s Native-American communities with September serving as a time when families come together and communities celebrate their heritage. One of Delaware’s most well-known Native-American celebrations is the annual Nanticoke Indian Pow-Wow that will take place this year on Sept. 6 and 7. Administered by the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, the six museums of the state of Delaware—the New Castle Court House Museum, the John Dickinson Plantation, the First State Heritage Park Welcome Center and Galleries, The Old State House, the Johnson Victrola Museum and the Zwaanendael Museum—tell the story of the First State’s contributions to the history and culture of the United States. Through displays, exhibits and special programs, the museums explore how the state's distinctive physical environment, in combination with the people who came to live there, gave Delaware an identity that is different from any other place.
