You are invited to attend our First Friday Art Reception and Book signing for Robert Campagna, Friday, February 3rd, 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

Refreshments will be served, in the Library (adjacent to the gallery) of the First Street Community Center.

Campagna will have 24 Native American framed images on exhibit and will also be signing his new book “In Great Spirit”. ( Exhibit pieces and books will be available to purchase).

Campagna’s 52 page, 6″ x 9″ spiral bound book features photos of the Taos Pueblo, Meskwaki Nation, and a Karuk basket weaver.

There are approximately 50 images in the book with added text from Black Elk, Ohiyesa, Black Hawk, and others.

It’s important to emphasize that this is an exhibit catalogue, not a coffee table book (important for tribal political reasons), and it reflects, in part, Campagna’s personal journey.

We are super excited about hosting Bob’s exhibit of Native American photos. At 6:15 he will speak about the collection, so make sure you are here by then. Bob will also be signing his book thru the evening as well. And, because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…. our refreshments will include chocolate, and you already know that we always serve wine.

This event is open to the public and is brought to you by:
