Ronald Williams Photo Show Puts Sunlight on Wildflowers of Los Padres National Forest

Holiday exhibit at Faulkner Gallery will benefit Los Padres ForestWatch

Photographer Ronald L. Williams will be sharing his art at a one-artist show next month at the Santa Barbara Central Library’s Faulkner Gallery.

The show, “Wildflowers of Los Padres National Forest,” consists of closeup photographs of native flora in the region. Williams captured his images by redirecting sunlight on a specimen with a dark background to “paint it” with light and preserve its natural beauty through his camera work. The show’s images of 19 wildflowers have a variety of vivid colors and interesting shapes and textures.

Williams is a member of the Channel City Camera Club and the Santa Barbara Art Association. He was a Channel City Camera Club print finalist in 2007 and 2008 and won a Santa Barbara Art Association honorable mention in 2009.

He and his wife, Charlotte, are members of Los Padres ForestWatch, a Santa Barbara-based nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife habitat and wilderness landscapes in Los Padres National Forest. Half of the proceeds of sales from his December show will be donated to ForestWatch.

Opening night is 5-8 p.m. Dec. 3 as part of the Downtown Organization’s 1st Thursday celebration of art and culture. The exhibit continues through Dec. 28 at the Faulkner Gallery, 40 E. Anapamu St.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
