Seton and the Quest to Save Nature

 

In 1893, on the winter plains of New Mexico, a drama played out between a wolf pack and a hunter named Ernest Thompson Seton. The wolves lost in the struggle, but in an unexpected way they prevailed by changing the spirit of the man. Seton experienced a personal transformation, putting the best of what he had learned to work in the world.


In 1901 Ernest Thompson Seton co-founded the wildlife conservation movement and helped set the course for modern environmentalism. Through his art and writing he changed the course of American history.

 

The opening reception begins in the gallery at 7pm and we will have an 8:00 pm champagne toast in celebration of Ernest Thompson Seton's birthday.
