On view October 27, 2017 – March 12, 2018

Bill Dewey has been photographing the California landscape since taking up the camera in the early 1970s. He has had his private pilot’s license since 1981 and bases his aerial photography excursions out of Santa Barbara Airport.

This show features more than 20 prints of the tri-counties area (Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura) taken from the air. At least three-quarters of the photographs are recent works which have never been exhibited before, including reflection of an orange sun through the smoke from the Whittier Fire, a view of last spring’s super bloom of wildflowers at the Carrizo Plain, and winter storm clouds over Rincon Point. Wildling executive director Stacey Otte-Demangate curated this show.
