Tippets: Wilkinson on Grizzlies in the West, Catskill Fly Tying Exhibition

May 8, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • Jackson Hole’s grizzly 399 is “the most famous living wild bear on Earth,” and yet an “irrational cultural hostility” towards grizzlies thrives in Wyoming, writes Todd Wilkinson. In a recent op-ed, Wilkinson writes about the meaningful connection with nature people receive through grizzly 399’s presence, and the importance of recognizing the “rare and powerful assets” endemic to the state. Read the piece in full via the Jackson Hole News & Guide.
  • A new exhibit at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts in Woodstock, NY celebrates the art of fly tying. “The Art of Artifice: A Photographic Exploration of the Catskill Fly Tyer’s Craft” features photography by Mark Loete and is curated by Tina Bromberg. An opening reception will be held Saturday May 7, from 4-6 p.m., and the exhibit will run through June 26, 2016.
