Lake Stevens Musuem exhibiting Washington Resident Bannick’s photography


July 24, 2012

In a new exhibit, The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington, at the Lake Stevens Museum, award winning photographer, author, conservationist, and Washington resident Paul Bannick examines the intertwined life histories of owls and woodpeckers and the unique roles they have played in defining and enriching their often-threatened habitats.

Based on Bannick’s book “The Owl and the Woodpecker,” the exhibit features 15 extraordinary photographic prints of owl and woodpecker species found in the Pacific Northwest, together with engaging text panels, and vivid birdcalls and drumming sound recordings by audio-naturalist Martyn Stewart.

The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington – a traveling exhibit from the Burke Museum, Seattle – is on view at the Lake Stevens Museum, Fridays and Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. each week from July 20 through September 15.

For those who have not been to the Lake Stevens Museum before, it is located on the west end of the Lake Stevens Library building directly across the street from the Lake Stevens Post Office.

The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington exhibit was organized by the Burke Museum, University of Washington, created with Paul Bannick and Braided River, a partner of The Mountaineers Books.
