CBW closes successful Native American photo exhibit

2016-cbw-art-closing-04925The Citizens for a Better Williams (CBW) closed a successful 22-day exhibit of the “Shadow Catcher: Photogravures of Native America by Edward S. Curtis.”

“It has been inspirational to be around the collection,” said CBW member Pat Ash. “It also has been an honor to present the collection of our nation’s native people.”

People from around the north state took the opportunity to view the limited collection.

“We had people from Benicia, Redding, Chico, and Napa visit,” said Ash. “Everyone that came through the door had a unique story to tell, and all were moved by the photos.”

Ash estimated about 150 people viewed the exhibit.

“The photos were just beautiful,” said Marilyn Davison of Colusa. “I want to go back and see them again, and take my time.”

Davison commented that she is originally from Montana, where they were surrounded by the Blackfeet Indians.

“The native culture and people have always fascinated me,” said Davison. “I enjoyed the presentation, and the whole evening.”

“The Williams Unified School District brought out its fourth and fifth grade students,” said Ash. “It was a great experience for them, and they had many questions.”

On Sunday, CBW held a closing ceremony for the collection.

“Charlie Wright from the Kletsel Dehe tribe graciously offered to provide us with a closing prayer,” said Ash. “He did a wonderful job facilitating the opening ceremony,and we are proud to have his support.”

Ash added, “The exhibit has exposed our group and our community to outside interests. It shows we can be a destination place for events like this. It has been a pleasure.

The collection is owned by Kurt Rudy of McCloud, who also serves as the director of the Edward S. Curtis Gallery.

Ash contacted Rudy, who graciously allowed the organization to host the collection.

“I am grateful that he allowed us to bring it down here,” she said.

Rudy also gave a percentage of the photo purchases to the Citizens for a Better Williams.

“It’s a gift that keeps on giving,” Ash said

Ash said about nine photogravures were sold during the exhibit. ■
