On display in the Museum’s Natural History wing is: “winged messengers,“ a compilation of photographs illuminating beauty in the details, lines and symmetry of insects. The exhibit features nearly twenty stunning images captured and produced by local fine art photographer, Patti Dietrick.
Patti Dietrick became a resident of Yucca Valley after she retired from Long Beach City College, where she taught Photography. She owned Paper Moon Studios in Long Beach specializing in industrial commercial photography and portraiture. Patti still uses a variety of analog cameras and film. The exhibit ‘’winged messengers’’ is a perfect example of how art and science come together blending technical qualities of the analog camera and darkroom with the aesthetics of art.
Patti is a member of the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council and has curated shows at Gallery 62 and Beatnik in Joshua Tree and has shown her art at the Visitors Center in 29 Palms. She participates with Art in Public Places and has taught youth art workshops in Joshua Tree, Wonder Valley and Twentynine Palms.
“winged messengers” will be on display until December 19, 2020.
