Photographers’ Gallery

“Into the Woods” photography by Julie Bonney

Julie Bonney is the featured artist at The Photographers’ Gallery At The Ashland Art Center. Her new show, “Into The Woods” opens during the First Friday Art Walk on November 3rd.

Julie is a local photographer who finds inspiration in the natural beauty of Southern Oregon and Northern California. John Muir said, “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” The forest is a beacon for Julie. It invites her to enter and explore more. She feels as though there is a great mystery hiding somewhere within. Her photography explores that mystery and creates a deeper relationship between nature and herself.
