Lecture - Sunday February 25, 2024 - Laura Gilpin, Photographer Extraordinaire
Laura Gilpin, the author of four photography books including The Enduring Navaho published in 1968 when she was 77 years old, carved her own artistic path as a photographer of the western landscape that includes portraits, still lifes, commercial documentaries, printmaking and aerial photography.
Her life and work will be presented by Deborah Blanche, Chautauqua Performer, as a one-woman show, set in 1954, that combines slides of Gilpin’s famous photographs as well as behind-the-camera stories of a lady ahead of her time in many ways.
SPEAKER: Deborah Blanche, a New Mexico actor and storyteller, has created Chautauqua interactive programs since the mid-1970’s.
Blanche studied theatre in England and has toured throughout the
United States. In 1988, she received the YWCA’s Woman on the
Move award for her contributions to the arts in New Mexico. Blanche’s performances combine her love of history, women’s stories and theater. “Answering questions as the character is my favorite part of each presentation", Deborah explains.
WHERE AND WHEN 2 P.M. MST
Martha Liebert Public Library
124 Calle Malinche, Bernalillo.
Masks are discretionary, refreshments will be served, and there is an elevator to the event meeting room on the 2nd floor.
