The six display cases show the art of woodworking including: turnings and carvings, furniture, sculptures and boxes, technology, veneered works and musical instruments.
John Richter Statement about “Magnificent Colorado”
Colorado is truly a place of superlatives and over the last 20 years I have gone all out to capture my vision of Magnificent Colorado! As winter’s white veil recedes and the glory of a Colorado summer is revealed, rugged snowcapped peaks of the Continental Divide whose basins turn an emerald green carpet of wildflowers mixed with unique endemic plant life beckon the adventurer, naturalist and many others to this stunning natural playground. Colorado boasts the highest average elevation of any state in the country and is home to 14,000 foot peaks, more than anywhere else in North America. From the highest reaches of the Colorado mountains, numerous tributaries feed the headwaters of some of our nations most cherished rivers. These waters not only provide life-sustaining nourishment to countless species of fish and game, but also support our state’s vast agricultural interests and provide numerous recreational opportunities to millions of fisherman, rafters and other recreationalists every year. Anyone who has lived in Colorado for any length of time can tell you it is possible to experience four seasons in one day! While this might be a slight exaggeration, it is certainly possible to enjoy recreational opportunities from all seasons in one day, a superlative experience found few other places in the world. I hope through my large format photographs of this magnificent state you might discover something new about Colorado that inspires your soul!
