The Photography of Wayne Olts, 1968-2018
From the Ngoni to the Nez Perce

November 17, 2017 - January 14, 2018
Reception: Friday, November 17, 5-7 pm

Artist Mosaic

Above: Photographs by Wayne Olts.

This exhibit focuses primarily on Olts’ work over the last three summers with the Nez Perce Indians of eastern Oregon and Idaho. It includes photographs, maps, text panels, and quotes that tell the story of the history of the dramatic events of the war of 1877 and also celebrates the vibrant contemporary ceremonial world of the Nez Perce.

Other segments of the exhibit will serve as a retrospective of his work over the past fifty years. From 1968-71 Olts lived among the Ngoni tribe in Malawi, Central Africa while serving in the Peace Corps. The images he recorded of the Ngoni are strikingly similar in content and focus as those of the Nez Perce, although from a very different culture on the other side of the world. In addition, there will be samples from exhibits over the years on a variety of topics, all from a photojournalistic perspective.
