PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS AT SUN TO MOON GALLERY...
Kindred Spirits: The photography of Dan Burkholder & Jill Skupin Burkholder
February 23 - March 18, 2017
It is rare to find husband-wife teams performing and creating individually at the highest levels of photography, but Sun to Moon Gallery is blessed with three such couples; Anne Larsen & John Sexton, Annette Bottaro-Walklet & Keith S. Walklet, and Jill Skupin Burkholder & Dan Burkholder. The gallery is pleased to highlight the artistry of one of these couples with the exhibition, “Kindred Spirits: The Photography of Dan Burkholder & Jill Skupin Burkholder.” Both artists are introducing new prints and will be present to talk about their works at an Artists Reception at Sun to Moon Gallery on Saturday, March 4th from 5-8 p.m.
Dan Burkholder on his new Cuba work: "An artist's responsibility is to find - or create - the atypical in any environment. During my three recent trips to Cuba, I strived to discover the unique design, the inimitable subject matter, or the photographic approach that would separate my images from the commonplace."
Jill Skupin Burkholder talks about her new work from the Great Trinity Forest in Dallas: "My new prints from the Great Trinity Forest unveil the diverse creatures living within the natural, native areas of Dallas. These images of Texas wildlife, captured with a motion-sensitive trail camera, are creatively transformed into encaustic works of art utilizing beeswax and resin to highlight the ethereal landscape within the borders of the urban forest."

NATIONAL PARK SERVICE @ 100
A Photographic Celebration
12 photographers. 20 parks. 30 fine prints.
September 8 – October 8, 2016
The twelve photographers represented by Sun to Moon Gallery work with a variety of genres and subjects, but nature and wild spaces are unquestionably at the top of the list. To celebrate the Centennial of the National Park Service, the gallery assembled a collection of 30 fine prints featuring 20 park units in the national park system. Prints by each of the twelve photographers are included, including Alan Ross and John Sexton, the great Ansel Adams’ (arguably the most famous photographer ever of our national parks) last two photographic assistants, working with Adams collectively from 1976 until his death in 1984. In addition to gelatin silver prints by Ross and Sexton, large-format color prints by Scot Miller, the current Artist-in-Park for the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park in Stonewall, TX, Charles Cramer, a two-time Artist-in-Park at Yosemite National Park, and Alison Shaw, who served a beach shack artist-in-residency at Cape Cod National Seashore, will be on display and for sale, as well as prints by Annette Bottaro-Walklet, Dan Burkholder, Jeffrey Conley, Anne Larsen, Jill Skupin Burkholder, Keith S. Walklet and R.P. Washburne.
According to Gallery Director Marilyn Miller, “We are fortunate to represent some of the best landscape photographers in the world and look forward to showing their artistry in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial. While exhibition visitors will see some iconic images of parks, many of the images highlight the unique, artistic eyes that the photographers have become so well known for. Well-known parks such as Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National Park will be represented as well as lesser-known parks, such as Buffalo National River and Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We are also excited to feature an image by Scot Miller from the new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. He has been working in northern Maine for over a decade in support of the new park.”
Among the areas featured are Acadia National Park (Maine), Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah), Buffalo National River (Arkansas), Cape Cod National Seashore (Massachusetts), Golden Gate National Recreation Area (California), Grand Teton National Park (Wyoming), Great Smoky Mountains National Park (North Carolina, Tennessee), Kings Canyon National Park (California), Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park (Texas), Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming), Yosemite National Park (California), and Zion National Park (Utah).

Artists & Artisans of the Dallas Design District
Introducing seven new Limited Edition Prints by Scot Miller
July 14 – August 20, 2016
At Sun to Moon Gallery, we love our neighborhood’s eclectic mix with many people in the arts. Photographer Scot Miller recently spent time in the studios of five artists and artisans in the Dallas Design District, artistically interpreting them with his camera. Artists & Artisans of the Dallas Design District builds upon the “Dallas” focus of the summer exhibitions at Sun to Moon Gallery and is showing concurrently with The Dallas Portfolio group exhibition through August 20.
Sun to Moon Gallery and photographer Scot Miller are introducing seven bold & beautiful limited edition prints (editions of 25) from his artist studio series.
Scot and the five artists who are the subjects of the photographs will be at the Opening Artists Reception on Saturday, July 16, from 5-8:
Artist’s Statement – I sought to capture the essence of the artists and their creative processes. The resulting work is much different from the nature/landscape work that I am best known for. I used narrow depth of field, subtle movement of the camera while exposing, and long exposures capturing movements over time, techniques rarely used in most of my work. Each artist is different, with their own working style, so no cookie cutter approach would work. In the end, you see the artists at work, but not presented in typical portrait form. By design, there is a certain mysteriousness to the images. - Scot Miller
The Dallas Portfolio
JUNE 16 – AUGUST 20, 2016
An eclectic mix of imagery focusing on the Great Trinity Forest,
the Trinity River & the Urban Landscape of Dallas
Featuring fine photographic prints by 5 photographers –

VIEW THE DALLAS PRINTS
For ten years, Sun to Moon Gallery has encouraged photographers represented by the gallery to focus their cameras on Dallas, with impressive results. With the
addition of master photographer & printer Charles Cramer, who visited and photographed Dallas in February of this year, the number of photographers contributing to the Dallas Portfolio is now five. This exhibition features many new prints shown for the first time.
The evolving downtown Dallas skyline; Trees in the forest; Colorful wildflowers at the new Trinity Forest Golf Club; Abstract images; Trails winding through the forest; A signature bridge; the range of subject matter and artistic expression serve to illustrate differing artistic views of Great Trinity Forest, the Trinity River and the evolving urban landscape of Dallas.
According to gallery director Marilyn Miller, “This eye-opening exhibition shows the city in a light not often seen and features many stunning images. And when you consider that every image was taken within fifteen minutes of the gallery, it makes it all even more interesting and intriguing.”

ALISON SHAW: A Colorful Palette
MAY 12 –JUNE 11, 2016
Finely Crafted Photographic Prints
VIEW the Alison Shaw Fine Prints
Off the south coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, lies Martha’s Vineyard, where award-winning photographer Alison Shaw has lived and worked since 1975. The island has provided the inspiration and subject matter for much of her photography. In recent years she has been fascinated by abstracting the scenes before her, using her camera to literally paint with light, with movement of the camera creating gorgeous, evocative swaths of color.
This new exhibition at Sun to Moon Gallery celebrates the cycle of Alison’s creative work, featuring crisp, clear, saturated images, tranquil, ethereal seascapes, and variations thereof. From boldly graphic abstracts to mystical seascapes to fascinating boat detail studies to her artist’s studios series – Alison’s colorful, contemporary and organic prints are visually stunning, beautiful to behold, and unique relative to the other photographers’ print styles at Sun to Moon Gallery.
Friendly to collectors and non-collectors alike, Alison’s vibrant prints hang easily in contemporary spaces. Nineteen books featuring her photography have been published and thousands of her original fine art prints are in public and private collections.
Art of the Tree: CHARLES CRAMER
FEBRUARY 18 – MARCH 26, 2016
Big trees, small trees, lone trees, groves of trees, west coast trees, east coast trees, Southwest trees, Caddo Lake trees; this exhibition celebrates trees, a subject that Charles Cramer is known for far and wide. A master photographer and printer, Cramer studied with the great Ansel Adams... and learned well. Making fine prints has been his obsession for forty years. Only when you see his prints in person, and experience their brilliance and sharpness, do you fully appreciate them.
Charles Cramer is widely recognized as one of the top landscape photographers in the world today. It’s one thing to take great photographs and another to translate great photographs into luminous prints that “sing.” He excels in both! Almost two-dozen stunning large-format color prints will be on display during this exhibition. Sun to Moon Gallery invites you to celebrate the art of the tree, Charles Cramer-style!
JANUARY 14 – FEBRUARY 13
We're kicking off the new year with a bang,

A Photographic Trilogy of
American Wildness" by Scot Miller

Texas is well represented in the book, with images from the Texas Hill County, the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park (LBJ Ranch - where Scot is Artist-in-Park) and Caddo Lake. There is also an image from the Great Trinity Forest in Dallas, a fact that Scot is proud of.

Vida Cubana by R. P. Washburne
Fine photographic prints of Cuban life.
JULY 16 – AUGUST 22, 2015
"I spent countless hours roaming the streets, hoping to find locations that were stories in themselves. Of course, I didn't have to look far, as everywhere you turn in Cuba there's another gold mine for the eyes. Not just the old American cars from the 50's and before, but everything else which became frozen in time during the revolution, contributed to a sense of having traveled backward in time."
- R.P. Washburne
R.P. "Dick" Washburne traveled to Cuba three times; two month-long trips in 2000 and a two-week trip in 2011. He spent countless hours roaming the streets, seeking locations and scenes that were stories in themselves. With this exhibition, we present some of those stories, showing a fascinating look into a Cuba before the inevitable changes occur.

INSIGHT with Keith S. Walklet
An exhibition of finely crafted photographic prints
OCTOBER 11 – NOVEMBER 15, 2014
Photographer/author Keith S. Walklet is well known for his fine photographic prints of grand landscapes, especially of the American West and his former home, Yosemite National Park, but in the last few years he has expanded his photographic palette in new ways.
According to Keith, “Lately, I’ve been exploring the elasticity of light: compressing it, stretching it, looking at layers of light, all in search of the poetry that resides within the fractions of time. By toying with time, I’ve expanded my visual pallet beyond simple, literal interpretations of a scene, to impressions of a moment. Longer exposures, where either the camera or subject are moving, have the feeling of paintings with bold brush strokes. Shorter exposures reveal layer upon layer of information. But, they all share a sense of wonder at the magic that is going on around us at all times.”
Walklet’s “Insight” exhibition at Sun to Moon Gallery will feature prints reflecting his recent work with abstract imagery plus the stunning landscapes that he has long been known for. Each print is made by Mr. Walklet, printed to archival standards, numbered and signed.

Caddo Lake Exposed: SIX PERSPECTIVES
An exhibition of 33 finely crafted photographic prints,
benefiting Caddo Lake Institute
Featuring fine photographic prints by Dan Burkholder, Charles Cramer,
Scot Miller, Alan Ross, Jill Skupin Burkholder & R.P. Washburne
SEPTEMBER 4 – OCTOBER 11, 2014
Attention collectors - A first for Sun to Moon Gallery...
Every print hanging in this exhibiiton is the #1 print.
An extraordinary number of people have a deep affection for Caddo Lake, on the Texas/Louisiana border. It is truly unique. No other body of water in Texas remotely resembles it. It is the only naturally formed large lake in Texas and supports the largest flooded cypress forest anywhere. It is visually stunning, with Spanish moss-draped trees and an abundance of wildlife (including rare birds & alligators!). Caddo Lake’s wetlands are recognized as “Wetlands of International Importance" under the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty created in 1971. For over two years, six renowned photographers turned their lenses on the lake, resulting in this exhibition of 33 diverse and engaging fine photographic prints.
It is important to protect and preserve Caddo Lake, now and for future generations. Caddo Lake Institute (CLI) is helping to do just that.
Partial proceeds from “Caddo Lake Exposed” print sales benefit Caddo Lake Institute, a non-profit scientific and educational organization founded in 1992 by recording artist-conservationist Don Henley, who grew up in the region. Caddo Lake Institute’s mission is to protect the ecological, cultural and economic integrity of Caddo Lake, and its associated wetlands and watershed. CLI works with local communities, schools, non-governmental organizations & government agencies to protect the unique treasure that is Caddo Lake. Your fine print purchases help the cause!

Jill Skupin Burkholder:
April 3 – May 3, 2014
Photographer and print maker Jill Skupin Burkholder is best known for her work with age-old handcrafted techniques such as bromoil printing, an alternative photography process using brushes and lithography inks to create prints with beautiful impressionistic and textural looks, and encaustic print making, using pigmented beeswax and resin to enhance her photographic images. Jill is one of a very few photographers today working with these print making processes.
According to Jill, "I classify my work as poetic perception. In most instances, the subjects in the images were actually there and the scenes are not constructed by my hands or by creating digital collages. My creative input (by composition and both old and new photo techniques) attempts to point you toward the emotion I felt when I saw the scene."
Jill's works of art are enchanting, engaging and valued worldwide by collectors and lovers of art in general.

Jeffrey Conley: Balanced Simplicity
February 20 –
March 29, 2014
Jeffrey Conley's photographs strive for a balanced simplicity that evokes his sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world; from urban landscapes and the found still life, to studies of pristine wilderness. The scale and tonal range of his darkroom-crafted Gelatin Silver Prints varies from small and subtle to large and dramatic and he limits most prints to 40. Each print is a distinctly original creation.
Now residing in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, Conley's efforts center on his creative photography. His work has been widely exhibited and is collected by private collectors and museums worldwide. His gorgeous monograph, Winter, was published by Nazraeli Press and we have signed copies for sale.

An exhibition of fine color prints
from the new book,
The Maine Woods: A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness,
Scot’s two previous illustrated Thoreau books, Walden and Cape Cod.
From the award-winning photographer who brought to life Henry David Thoreau’s Walden and John Muir’s My First Summer in the Sierra comes a new book, his fifth, combining classic literature with stunning new photography. The new Collector’s Edition book by Levenger Press, Thoreau, The Maine Woods: A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness, marries the photographs of Dallas-based Scot Miller with the words of Henry David Thoreau as he recounts three excursions to the Maine Woods, from 1846 to 1857. Scot spent more than seven years, in all seasons, photographing northern Maine, from Bangor in the south to Fort Kent on the Canadian border, focusing on the places Thoreau either explored or wrote about in his 1864 book. The result is a new, exquisitely reproduced illustrated Collector’s Edition, replete with 88 full-color photographs and containing Thoreau’s full text.
A Photographic Adventure in Thoreau’s Maine Woods by Scot Miller, features large-format fine color prints from the new book plus “favorite” prints from Scot’s two previous illustrated Thoreau books, Walden and Cape Cod. Additionally, for the first time since their “Camera to Canvas II” collaborative exhibition in 2006, brothers Scot and JD Miller collaborate again. JD, represented locally by Samuel Lynne Galleries, created a large, one-of-a-kind 3-D oil painting of his interpretation of Scot’s “Color Burst, Maine Woods,” a Collector’s Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print Scot produced to help raise funds for his efforts on behalf of the creation of a new national park in the Maine Woods. The stunning photograph is featured on the cover of the new book. JD’s oil painting is on display at Sun to Moon Gallery throughout the exhibition, and offered for sale at $28,500, with partial proceeds benefitting Scot's national park efforts.

About Scot Miller
Scot Miller is a professional photographer whose work has appeared in numerous publications and books, including Walden: The 150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic, Cape Cod: Illustrated Edition of the American Classic, and First Light: Five Photographers Explore Yosemite’s Wilderness. He is currently Artist-in-Park at the Lyndon B. Johnson Historical Park (LBJ Ranch) and is working on a Maine Woods book. His fine art prints are included in many collections. Miller lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Marilyn, where they own and operate Sun to Moon Gallery, a fine art photography gallery.
About John Muir
JOHN MUIR (1838-1914) was a naturalist, environmental activist, and author of over a dozen books on nature and conservation. He founded the Sierra Club and is considered the father of the national parks.
About the Book
From the photographer who brought Thoreau’s Walden and Cape Cod to life comes a new work combining classic literature with brand-new photography. This time, Scot Miller takes on the seminal work of John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra. The book details Muir’s first extended trip to the Sierra Nevada in what is now Yosemite National Park, a landscape that entranced him immediately and had a profound effect on his life. The towering waterfalls, natural rock formations, and abundant plant and animal life helped Muir develop his views of the natural world, views that would eventually lead him to push for the creation of the national parks.
Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the book’s original publication by Houghton Mifflin Company, My First Summer in the Sierra is illustrated with Miller’s stunning photographs, showcasing the dramatic landscape of the High Sierra plus John Muir’s illustrations from the original edition and several previously unpublished illustrations from his 1911 manuscript.
The foreword is by Dayton Duncan and Kens Burns, the award-winning filmmakers who collaborated on the PBS documentary “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”
The book is published in collaboration with Yosemite Conservancy and, for each copy sold, Scot Miller is making a donation to Yosemite Conservancy.
