Klamath Art Gallery October Exhibit
Barbara Scoles has always loved nature photography and just before her retirement from Portland’s Big-Tech Industry in 2010 she started trying it out for herself.
She shares her love of nature with her husband Harry. Together they seek out scenic areas to capture in Alaska, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks.
During their first trip to the Klamath Basin, they read an article in the local newspaper about the Western and Clark’s Grebes Bird courtships at Putnam’s Point. Barbara just had to get some photos of the Grebes “dancing”.
After visiting multiple times, they realized that they should move here and be closer to nature and to family so that’s what they did in 2012.
Barbara has won various awards over the years for her photos. She won 2 ‘KAA Best in Show’ awards and in 2022 had her first individual gallery show at the Klamath Art Gallery. She has had her photos published on the Smithsonian Magazine website, in various newspapers, in scientific journals and on the cover of a book about Grebes. Barbara’s volunteer work with the Klamath Basin Refuges and the Winter Wings Festival keeps her inspired.
Jonne M. Goeller is a retired art & photo educator, who has a passion for landscape photography. This has led her to a lifetime of photographic and hiking adventures to some of the most remote parts of the west. She began taking 35 mm photographs when only twelve years old and has never stopped. Wildlife images have become a major part of her work. Jonne’s award-winning photographs have been exhibited extensively in Oregon and have been published in magazines like The Range and The Western Horseman. Two of her landscape photographs appear on the covers of books by local authors. Her Crater Lake photograph “Out of the Mist” was selected by the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce for a mural painting on Klamath Avenue.

Mary Williams Hyde has a master’s degree, in part, in fine art, and has had more than 50 group and solo shows of her contemporary style paintings, monoprints, and oil pastels, in addition to shows of her quilts and her buckaroo photography. Mary has published nearly 90 coffee table books so far to create an archive of her best photos with more to come. She has been traveling through the Great Basins of the West for at least thirty years documenting the people and places that keep the old buckaroo traditions alive. It all makes sense when you know that she grew up on a ranch near Bly, Oregon. Along the way, Mary developed a passion for wildlife photography too. At this show you will see a new exhibit of photos made into art with computer generated special effects, this is her first showing of her wildlife photography and she hopes you will attend. Please come and meet these three talented women at their opening reception “Nature from 3 Points of View” Oct. 1st from Noon to 4 pm. This Art Show and Sale runs, from Oct. 1 to 29, 2023 at the Klamath Art Gallery 120 Riverside Dr.
