‘An Eye for the Rez: ‘Edward Heath Photography’ exhibit to open April 6 at The Museum at Warm Springs
WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- “An Eye for the Rez: Edward Heath Photography” will open at The Museum at Warm Springs on Thursday, April 6. It will be on view through Saturday, May 27.
This exhibition — part of The Museum’s 30th anniversary lineup of exhibitions, public programs and special events — features photographs by renowned Warms Springs photographer Edward Heath (Warm Springs, Wasco, Yakama, Paiute and Klamath descent). Support for “An Eye for the Rez” is provided by a grant from The Ford Family Foundation.
Heath was born in Madras and grew up in the Simnasho area. He is the nephew of Warm Springs Chief Delvis Heath. The exhibit is curated by Warm Springs Museum Curator and Exhibition Coordinator Angela Anne Smith (Warm Springs, Yakama, Nez Perce and Diné).
Heath had a solo exhibition of his photography at The Museum at Warm Springs in 2016. Since that time, he has become known for his portraits, nature and wildlife photography. “I do not specialize in any form of photography, mainly capturing things I find interesting along roadsides and trails,” Heath has said. “I like to capture things that have non-obvious beauty, or things others take for granted.”
