Ghosts of the San Juans
Thru November 9Free admission
Opening Reception will be held on September 21 from 4-6 pm
The Wright Opera House in Ouray will host “Ghosts of the San Juans” an exhibit of photography by Dr. Larry Meckel.
Larry has a BA and PhD in Geology and has spent most of his career in oil and gas exploration. He was awarded the Distinguished Educator Award by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists for teaching excellence in 2011. In 2017 Larry received the industry’s highest accolade, the Sydney Powers Memorial Award for his many contributions to petroleum geology. In the early 60s while in graduate school at John’s Hopkins, Larry needed photos of outcrops and geologic features for his thesis. Using a 35 mm SLR given to him by his parents, he photographed more than rocks, and his passion for photography grew from the many human interest shots that he took and posted on his oﬃce bulletin board.
Larry and his wife, Barbara, enjoy hiking, jeeping, and photography in the San Juan mountains. They have been summer residents of Ouray since 1970 and became full time residents in 1999. “Ghosts of the San Juans” will be on display at the Wright, 472 Main in Ouray from September 21 until November 9, 2019. An Opening Reception will be held on September 21 from 4-6 pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
