Photographer Clyde Butcher opens
St. Lucie Cultural Alliance season



On October 1, 2021, St. Lucie Cultural Alliance opens its 2021-2022 season with the landscape photographer Clyde Butcher. The Clyde Butcher’s show, Living Waters and the Florida Landscape Exhibition, opening night reception takes place on October 1, 2021, from 5:30 to 8 PM.

Attendees will enjoy a gallery filled with 29 of Butcher’s large-format breathtaking photographs, live music, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. The Living Waters and the Florida Landscape is a traveling exhibition by the Aquatic Preserve Society. Butcher, a longtime, devoted supporter of environmental causes, donated the 29 photographs to the Aquatic Preserve Program in 2000.

This well-anticipated stop of the moving gallery is made possible through a collaborative effort with the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance, the Aquatic Preserve Society, the Indian River Lagoon Aquatic Preserves, and the Friends of Spoil Islands.

Butcher, who has an exceptional career in photography, won state and national awards, is a self- taught photographer with a degree in architecture, known for his remarkable black and white landscape photographs. He composes his work throughout the United States and helps the public experience scenes out of reach and untouched. Butcher has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community, and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art.
