Upper Gallery: Merne Judson
“Fish, Flies & Gunnison”

Capturing the detail and color found in the simple pleasures of life is brought to the canvas in Fish, Flies and Gunnison. This collection of photography by local artist Merne Judson, is a view of Gunnison through the eye of a fly fisherman, “the beauty of the trout is far too dynamic to not be seen both in and out of the water”. Included in this show are pictures of Judson’s fly patterns and scenic views of life and fishing in the Gunnison area. All fish caught and photographed were returned safely to the water.
