Exquisite photographs by some of Ketchikan's finest photographers are the subject of the Tongass Historical Museum's latest exhibition. View Finders: Ketchikan's Photographers will open on Friday, February 20.

Shelley Stallings, of the Ketchikan Museum Department, is the show's curator. He invited many of the community's most accomplished photographers to submit their work, finally selecting more than seventy photographs for exhibition. Thirty-two photographers are represented, including outstanding photography students from Ketchikan High School and UAS-Ketchikan.

This exhibit features a wide range of photographic styles, techniques and subject matter, taken with a variety of camera formats. The photographs displayed range from Bruce Schwartz's large-format color prints of African subjects to Paulu Saari's black-and white detail photo of rocks and pebbles on a Revilla beach.

View Finders: Ketchikan's Photographers will open with a public reception at the Museum at 5:00 p.m. this Friday, February 20. Refreshments will be served, and music will be provided Harvey Hansen on the acoustic guitar.

View Finders will be on display through April 11. For information about museum hours or to arrange group tours, call 225-5900.
