An exhibit of large format, black and white photography by
landscape photographer Geoff Fricker, “Sacrament: Homage to a
River” is a document of the natural and cultural forces
influencing the river running through the region.
Images, which capture the river’s powerful and often ephemeral
nature, explore the watershed’s importance in California’s
economy and environment and reveal how all Californians, from
farmers and ecologists to fishermen and household consumers, have
a vested interest in the watershed’s future.
