Palmer’s Palette

by James Bartlett RichFeel like the impending snow will cramp your weekend plans? Take a short walk over the the Palmer Museum of Art to check out its American Naturalistic photography exhibit. The museum has photos from the turn of the 19th century by the father of Naturalistic photography, Peter Henry Emerson, as well by Pennsylvania natives such as Willard E. Wardon. The exhibit also displays the work of James Bartlett Rich, whose wealth lived up to his name. He spent it on biking equipment, cycling over 4,500 miles with his photography gear and capturing cliffs like the one to the right.

The aforementioned artists didn’t enhance their photos during development; they believed their pictures needed to foster an understanding of the natural. With the change of power bringing a more environmentally focused president, the museum couldn’t find a better time to encourage viewers to appreciate and preserve nature.

Plus, the museum has mesmerizing portraits by Edward Curtis as well as bursts of color by Oscar Lakeman and Roy de Forest that revitalize viewers during these stark winter days.
